I just posted this to the SOLO Forum:

I was recently in Taos, New Mexico perusing some art galleries and museums with my parents. Unfortunately, much was the usual *#$^@% of modern art, but we did run across some interesting work by an artist by the name of Ray Wiger. He creates sculptures of the human body in wire mesh. The figures themselves are beautiful — particularly with the strong lines and shadows created by the semi-three-dimensionality of the wire mesh. The photos from his web site don’t quite capture the sensual feel of the art, but they do give some idea:

Of course, my tastes in art are purely my own… but I’d be interested in the reactions of others. It seems like a case in which an unusual medium actually served a purpose.
