Sean Erwin: Object, Self
November 7 - December 27, 2014
2100 Walnut St, Kansas City, MO 64108
A solo exhibition of recent work by ceramic sculptor Sean Erwin, is a surrealistic look at the complexity of the human condition.
Inspired by the effects of personal possessions on human behavior, Erwin composes sculptural narratives around concepts such as identity, sexuality, spirituality, beauty, and mortality. His juxtaposition of toys, heads, and mechanical parts challenges viewers to consider alternative perspectives. His work questions the validity of behavioral expectations prescribed by social norms and employs humor in an attempt to reinvent these expectations within the timeless medium of ceramic sculpture.
