Karen Shapiro is funny. And wildly smart. And her work is absolutely fabulous. Snarky, ironic, witty, and bold, Shapiro's raku sculptures leave a giant impression on the viewer, quite literally. Not only are the sculptures much, much larger than object's actual size but Shapiro carefully selects the images she wishes to hit us over the head with. The images I've curated for this post are an assemblage of the Modern Woman. I love it.
