Grotesquely gorgeous, this fascinating sculpture by artist Roger Reutimann is at once a beautiful and morbid transformation of the central figure in famed renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. Naked and intensely red, the satirically-named Death of Venus is a stark contrast to the gentle purity of the iconic original, Venus’ innocent look replaced by a skull that menacingly stares beneath its shroud. This piece is Reutimann’s commentary on the lasting appeal of classic art in a society well removed from the period in which it was introduced.
Painted Book Sculptures byMike Stilkey, “Full of Smiles and Soft Attentions”
LA-based artist Mike Stilkey creates whimsical painted sculptures out of stacked books. Mike has always been attracted to painting and drawing not only on vintage paper, record covers and book pages, but on the books themselves. Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, Stilkey depicts a melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. A lingering sense of loss and longing hints at emotional depth and draws the viewer into their introspective thrall with a mixture of capricious poetry, wit, and mystery. His work is reminiscent of Weimar-era German expressionism and his style has been described by some as capturing features of artists ranging from Edward Gorey to Egon Schiele.
