Ari Norris

Sculptor |  Muskegon, MI

Artist in residence July 2018

"With self-deprecation in mind, an ironic impotency is hopefully achieved through the visual language utilized; sagging hammers, (steel) rubber bands, and inedible lifesavers. Comedically comparing expectation versus reality, perverse phallic and yonic references emerge in a Trompe L'oeil-esque fashion.

 

Employing a variety of methods and materials, such as cast bronze, resin, epoxy, aluminum products, and paints, these pieces strategically aim to deflate the male image we are familiar with, seen in works of art, personas, and grand monumentations.

 

Material choice and it's ability to negate the referenced object's function becomes an equal conceptual vestige, such as the employment of clear "ghost," castings, solidifying the passage from useable to nonexistent."
