Of Faeries, Fauns and Forests

Forest Rogers is an artist who is rooted in the woods, in mystery, and in pain. She is a phenom. Her artwork is unbelievably well crafted, yet it is both worldly and other worldly. You must give it a look. If Michelangelo were around today, he would be visiting her blog. He would be asking for her input. "So, Forest, should Adam's pointy finger go like a this and touch? Or no a touch?"

Yes, I'm lame. But I'm trying to make a point. Great art.

I figured that you would know her work. Her sketches are remarkable.

Her sketches are terrific (as are her large church installations - like medieval frescoes...), but I love her sculpted mythological figures the most. I keep wishing she lived closer so that I could go see some in person.

Oh, man wouldn't it be cool to do some frescoes some time. I agree, Tara, that her sculpted mythological figurines are delicate and probably breathe as well...
