"Lesser Kudu" by artist Peter Gronquist. (@petergronquist)
Mixed Media Sculpture, 60”x16”x55”
Artist statement: The evolution of desire through greed and consumerism is explored with a bit of irony and humor in the artist’s large-scale works, where taxidermied animals have their antlers sculpted into objects like replica weaponry or corporate logos, often before being gold-plated. The majestic beauty of the animals themselves sometimes stands at odds with the cold, sharp-edged beauty of glittering metal, but other works strike a softer chord.
Born in 1979, Peter Gronquist is a visual artist living in Portland, Oregon. Gronquist attended the School of Visual Arts for two years, after which he completed his Bachelors of Art at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2001. Gronquist has exhibited in galleries across the West Coast and New York. #art #artist #petergronquist #sculpture #warholian

This seems fitting given the way the tromp l’oeil character of the work is suggestive of a giant piece of corrugated iron that might have blown in from a collapsed water tank on some distant farm, only to rest precariously until the next gale lifts it into the air again.
"Artificial Moon" by artist Wang Yuyang is a sculpture composed of hundreds of energy saving light bulbs of different shapes and sizes.
Wang Yuyang, born in 1979, is an accidental new media artist. Interested in obsolete technology, an aesthetics of the broken, and material waste, his practice involves highly conceptual installation, photography, and video. Recent works have carried on the tradition of the post-sense sensibility generation, employing humorous and pseudo-spectacular tactics to interrogate the relationship between body, experience, and cognition. His work has been shown in major exhibitions and festivals across China and Europe
