” My artwork is an ongoing documentation of my immediate frame of reference. I tend to take an introspective approach to art, allowing my intuition to guide me through what needs to be communicated with each piece. Many of my works portray emotions brought upon by the human condition while others simply serve as a meditational outlet through color and shape. My interests include: identity, coping strategies, addiction, and mental health.” – Christina Zimmer Robinson

Leonardo Drew is known for his dynamic large-scale sculptural installations. On the one hand, Drew’s sculptures can be seen as exercises in formalism rooted in the very experience of looking. On the other hand, these works explore memory by employing a wide range of material to evoke common elements of the human experience and of our diverse histories. (via Sikkema Jenkins Co.)
The Supersize Bed is a collaboration with architectural foodsmith Harry Parr. The supersize style chip bed is both compelling and functional. Taken out of their ‘carton’, an armful of chips can be stacked up as flexible bolster cushions.

Claydon’s The Author of Mishap (Them) takes its inspiration from J.G. Frazer’s The Golden Bough, an early 20th-century dissertation on magic and ritual that was widely denounced for its questionable methodology – a comparative anthropology by ‘genre’ rather than linear science. Mirroring Frazer’s logic, Claydon’s portrait is a composite of three heroic busts of political figures from this time, each embodying radically opposing beliefs. Through this literal hybrid, Claydon incites the current revivals of genetic engineering and post-modern eclecticism as plausible validation of Frazer’s theories. Substituting the traditional hallowed material of bronze for cast copper powder and resin, Claydon defiles his subject’s monumentality; the aged patina has been created through urinating on the object, both an act of defamation and a reference to Warhol’s egalitarian pop. Perched on a burlap-coated plinth reminiscent of 1950s gallery wall coverings, Claydon reinforces his sculpture’s historical stature while belying its association with outdated fashion. The peacock feather operates primarily as a formal device, adding a surreal and dilettantish air to the impoverished authoritarian relic. Link.
