Claudette Schreuders

I was just reminded of the sculpture of Claudette Schreuders the other day when I came across a booklet of her work that was in a pile of random stuff. Her artwork is so amazing; perfect craftsmanship, first of all. She carves all of her sculptures herself out of jacaranda wood, and she also hand-draws lithography based on her sculpted figures. The proportions and personality of the people she creates are childlike and quite serious at the same time. A lot of her conceptual ideas focus around her South African upbringing post-Apartheid. I hope someone publishes a full catalogue of her artwork soon; These are just what I found on a Google Image search.
