"Mark Grotjahn: Painted Sculpture"

Grotjahn has been creating his funky takes on the bronze bust for a while now, though a viewer might be forgiven for not immediately recognizing any semblance of facial features (or the material itself) through the artist’s colorful, Expressionistic applications of paint. Cast from cardboard boxes and tubes, the pieces are assembled into cartoonish tribal masks, which, like much of Grotjahn’s recent work, send up modernism’s rip off of primitive art.
