Playworks: Forever & Ever Bronze Series

A selection of this series was exhibited at The Hole pop up gallery as part of the neighborhood arts initiative “ON CANAL” from November 17 – December 15, 2018.

 

Each piece is hand sculpted in clay and then cast in bronze using a direct burnout process for the mold, making each piece completely unique. These new works reimagine our favorite cartoons and characters in this elevated medium, transforming the pop mythology from our childhoods into new classical iconography for the 21st century.

 

Playworks reinterprets the iconic characters that have given shape to the language of pop culture, deforming and hybridizing them. These characters speak to viewers in a relatable way, while mixing reality and fantasy with a healthy dose of humor, idiosyncrasy, and fun.
