Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

Here's a critical review of some of some big names (McDonald, Goodacre, etc) by that young curmudgeon, Miles Mathis:

http://www.geocities.com/milesmathis/nielsen.html


I don't agree with about half of what he's written -- but I do appreciate a review that's based on emotion -- and an attempt to elaborate on that emotion -- rather than a discussion of what is -- or is not -- contemporary.

My sense is that Miles has not spent enough time with the great sculpture of the world -- and I'm also not sure that there's any point in writing about the work of a good friend -- since that relationship is going to trump any relationship with their sculpture.

But figure sculpture should be talked about more often -- just like everyone likes to talk about movies.
