I'm just flabbergasted by the polymer clay sculptures of Maria Brito now on display in the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in Miami, Florida. In this show, 20 white polymer clay tableaux depict in three dimensions the themes from Los Caprichos, the "black paintings" of Francisco de Goya from the late 1700s.

Says Brito, "I began to work with polymer clay making small figures. And the more I worked with it the more I got to know its pros and cons. I was able to achieve a degree of detail that I was really enjoying."

Thanks to Susan Rose for sharing this link and introducing us to these marvelous sculptures.
