Payne’s Studio Slideshow

I don’t know much about Massachusetts’ polymer clay/mixed media sculptor Max Payne but I love this slide show about her. It makes me want to poke around in her studio and rummage through her shelves of work.

Her sculptures are based on archetypes of myths and legends of the world. They represent “humans’ place in the world,” and she said, “we are a part of it, not the only thing.” Some of the sculptures convey this theme because they have human bodies with various animal heads.

In the midst of today’s hustle and bustle, it’s comforting to come across this quiet, thoughtful art. Here’s a little more about her.
