Kim Tucker’s Ceramics Play to the Surreal and Symbolic (NSFW-ish)

Kim TuckerKim Tucker’s ceramics are crafted with an air of whimsy,  yet feel very Freudian and loaded with phallic symbols and latent content. You see the face of a figure smiling, innocent even, but then on the other, you quickly notice the obsession with identity and body parts; Eyes on butts, eyes on genitalia, and other metaphors are all apart of Kim’s work.

I like how Stacey Dacheux wrote about her pieces on Beautiful/Decay:

…the entire menagerie evokes not only Tucker’s inner children, but also our own, as they engage in “psychological storytelling”– narrating open wounds we are inclined to protect, lick, mother, or share: a deep commiseration over the tragedy of bodily confinement.
