Judith Shea created “Without Words” in 1988 for the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. A former fashion designer, Shea uses clothes “first as abstract forms and, later, as surrogates for the human presence itself.” The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden site calls this work a “haunting trio” and “seems to be carrying on a dialogue about modern life and antiquity.”

I think it’s weird. The Invisible Man feel of the coat has some appeal to me, but it doesn’t mesh with the other forms. Together the three feel like art studio left overs thrown together on a whim. I’ve just never liked it.
