Description
Summary:"Sculptors Weppler and Mahovsky are known for the playful and unsettling ways they transform everyday objects, such as styrene coffee cups, tin cans and other hallmarks of the everyday. Their work draws from both minimalist and Pop histories, while displaying a distinctly contemporary critical conceptualism. Among the work featured is a new body of work called Clutter Sculptures, which is decidedly more baroque than their earlier, clean-lined Stacked Objects. Everyday items, such as bricks, bottles, and tires, are formed out of wire armatures, which are then slathered in plaster and enameled. Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky are a Vancouver-based artist-duo and among the most exciting young artists to emerge in Canada in the last decade."--BOOK JACKET.
