Select an Artwork to represent you: #12658
#12658, Kenzee Patterson, amulet, 2010, Cast stainless steel and paint.
Short explanation of your artwork selection:
amulet is a cast stainless steel ice cream tub which has been painted with googly eyes. I often respond to humour and use of everyday objects in contemporary art. Particularly sculptural objects that refer to something other than themselves. Kenzee’s practice has a depth and rigour which accompanies an object’s sometimes slight presence, which I respect and admire.
