Sophie Kahn is probably the only artist who sees the women like a fragmented muse. She merged new technology with old to haunting effect in her sculptures of incomplete women. The absences in these figures is what makes them so arresting. The elements that are represented are death-like in their pallor and stillness.
Kahn’s fragmented women give form to the futility of capturing the essence of a life.
