Saw the show. Top notch. Talked sculpture and life with Blake for some time. Those figures are much more powerful in person - the mutilation aspect becoming more prominent. We are very used to seeing figurations missing heads and limbs, plain old antiquity. But these are much more. Though He achieves his fragmenting by the blows of a hammer, the pieces look to be "torn" apart. They are broken flesh not broken clay. They have much more "edge" than you might think. They are not without some "shock". Damned inspiring. I'll post a pic when I get back to Massachusetts.
