Morgan Herrin at Mulherin Pollard in NYC

This upcoming Thursday, November 4th, 2010 at Mulherin Pollard Projects, 317 10th Ave. (between 28th & 29th) from 6-9pm, come see the latest masterpiece by Dallas-born and Richmond artist Morgan Herrin.
His wood sculptures are made with construction-grade lumber - that's right, the same wood used to build your house - and take the better part of a year to create. Read what Morgan has written about his new work:

Untitled Knight is the product of the combination of two subjects: 15th century plate armor, and geological cave structure. Studied separately, these two subjects are completely unrelated. The manmade geometric precision of plate armor is formally opposite the flowing, organic nature of stalactites and stalagmites. Seen together, these two parts present a striking contrast in form and create a theme of time and the effects of nature. The pose of the figure and the general composition are references to the classical sculpture “The Dying Gaul” of ancient Roman antiquity. Rendered entirely in laminated construction-grade 2 x 4s, the material itself irreverently contradicts this classical allusion, and at the same time draws attention to our own culture’s reliance on the fast, cheap, and impermanent.
