Francesco Molfetta’s Pop Fiction at TAG
Toy Art Gallery is proud to present “Pop Fiction” by Francesco Molfetta. The opening reception takes place on Friday October 14th 2011 from 7:00PM to 11:00PM, with the show run going until November 4th.
Francesco’s love of art history and sculpture is brought to the forefront with his “Michel-Angelo”, a re-envisioning of Michelangelo's David presented as a life-size fiberglass sculpture and limited edition porcelain art multiple.
Says Francesco: “The intent is to bring an ancient Art icon out of the classical museum and meet it with a contemporary aesthetic. The world's most famous sculpture (probably) the David by Michelangelo is re-interpreted in a more up-to-date way, camouflaged in a very futuristic Michelin man suit (white like him too!), and there he stands upright in his powerful proud pose. This visual short circuit gives birth to "Michel-angelo", a great homage of a sculptor to the great master.”
