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.

"The Belger Arts Center is amazing in its presence in Kansas City; not quite a museum, not a university gallery, not a commercial gallery. It is an entity in itself that defies definition. It is an incredible resource and contribution to the visual arts in Kansas City."

- Dr. Kathleen Desmond, REVIEW magazine, November 2004
