Tom Otterness 

Recent Sculpture: Several Strange Objects

September 9 – October 

 

Tom Otterness, who began his career as a public artist in 1978, continues his signature work with figurative cast bronze sculpture. His "button-faced" figures exemplify the human experience with a distinctive combination of narrative, whimsy, economic and political commentary. This exhibition features a selection of work that was inspired by lesser known tales, fables, and allegories. As always, Otterness' characters suggest a reinterpretation of popular culture as they combine truth, wit and satire.

 

Several Strange Objects is Tom Otterness' fourth solo exhibition at the John Berggruen Gallery. Otterness' sculpture has been widely exhibited and commissioned nationally and internationally. His work can be seen in numerous public collections such as the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and The Miyagi Museum of Art in Sendai, Japan.
