In May: Philip Iverson: About Face!
Philip Iverson's massive Face from 1991 is as powerful and engrossing as it is mysterious. Is it painting? Sculpture? Installation? Or a bit of all three? A commanding presence in whichever gallery space it is located, this artwork was created by Iverson using not only paint and plywood, but rope, staples, chicken wire, paint cans, a hubcap, and even a beer bottle. Learn about this complex and colourful work at this month’s Curator Crunch.
