reception with the artist – Friday August 11, 5 – 7:30
Mixed-media sculptor Geoffrey Gorman’s exhibition, “Standing Tall,” features his uncanny reinvention of found objects into life-like animals standing upright. During his recent travels to Egypt, Gorman was enthralled with the representation of figures with both human and animal attributes. In this series he imbues his creature creations with human expressions, placed in distinctly human postures – a motif found throughout Egyptian hieroglyphics. This work blurs the line between man and animal, and mythical anthropomorphism permeates.
