Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculpture by Liz Craft. This will be Craft's first solo show in New York.
The show will consist of approximately 12 figurative sculptures, all made primarily of cast bronze. Craft is a California native and lives and works in Los Angeles. The subjects of her sculptures draw from an evident Californian vernacular: a large cactus in an old shopping cart, a naked hippie smoking a pipe while strumming a guitar, a giant beaded curtain. Mythical and fantastical imagery mingles freely with everyday objects.
Handicraft is an important component of the artist's work. Beads and paint augment the bronze sculptures, evidencing of the artist's hand at work. This handmade quality further brings forward the truly idiosyncratic nature of Craft's creations. The works appear defiantly "from the gutter" yet proudly confrontational as a visitor is greeted by a large bronze cast of a middle finger on legs.
Liz Craft will be included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
Marianne Boesky Gallery is located at 535 West 22nd Street, 2nd Floor, New York.
The Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 – 6. Please call 212-680-6889 for further information.
