Sculptor Peter Gronquist at Shooting Gallery

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.

Wookjae Maeng

"Many artists have made work that communicates their thoughts and feelings about the social issues of their time. My works are in the same line and I hope that my works make small positive changes by giving people interest and stimulation.The theme of my work is to represent complex, ambiguous and uncomfortable relationships between man and other lives. Nature and animals has been an object of art for a long time. And, it will be continued until the fall of human being, although the point of view has been changed."

Macabre painting byDavide De Agostini

The work of Davide De Agostini is the story of past and lost humanity. It is the story of the dissolution of the forgotten memory and screaming, sore and dumb, to be recalled to memory, and fade for fear of being recognized for what it has become. It is the presence of witnesses silent, patient, invisible but sometimes guessed, passive in their solitude, active in the simple existence, and waiting for eternity.

Viral Seriesas, Surreal Ceramic Sculptures by Jess Riva Cooper

Toronto-based artist Jess Riva Cooper created this stunning collection of ceramic sculptures entitled “Viral Seriesas”…as part of an artist residency last fall at The Kohler Factory in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The pieces seem to lie at the peculiar intersection of life and death, as it should be given her inspiration behind the sculptures.
