Agnus Dei (After Zurbarán)
Carrara marble, 3D printed steel, 30 x 21 x 11 inches / 76 x 53 x 27 cm
is a series of sculptures, which evoke animals entombed in ornamented couch-like skins. Agnus Dei (After Zurbarán)
derives its form from a 1635 painting
by Francisco de Zurbarán of a bound lamb. Rendered life-size in marble and with a luxurious leather-like skin, the piece conjures notions of a kind of bondage by technology and materialism.
A surreal riff on the ancient motif of reclining bulls and oxen, Recumbent Bull’s leather-like appearance suggests a kind of BDSM enclosure. Cast in aluminum, and ornamented with 3D printed golden steel Baroque details, the piece is a kind of fetishistic decoration from an alternate reality.
