Peter Gronquist: American Mythic

Close Press Release

Showing Through: April 2nd - April 30th, 2011

This exhibition will showcase a variety of mediums including paintings, sculpture, mixed media and taxidermy. Utilizing the radical black market commonly known as ebay, Gronquist acquires the rare elements in his work. He sculpts with wire armature and epoxy clay, sanding and layering until the work is ready to be plated with gold, silver or chrome. Through this process the artist transforms taxidermy or weapons of warfare into skewed parodies of American culture.
