A solo show by Elizabeth Renstrom
June 13–15, 2014; 7pm
The shrines and ceremonies dedicated to disposable popular culture found within the artist’s 2012 series WAXY CHUNKS are taken one step further in SIKE! Instead of putting the symbols and icons in children’s media from the 1990’s on a pedestal, they are debased and imploded through a new series of humerous, absurd sculptures. SIKE! explores the implications of “putting away childish things” in a hyperreal concentrated visual manner, indicative of the artist’s style.
