Exhibition: Bohemian Press
Artist: Jeff Lohaus
In this Henry Moore-esque bronze by Jeff Lohaus, a looming gargoyle of a misshapen blob has managed to have both brilliance and power. Almost plastic-like in its gleaming smoothness, its skeletal frame, like some sort of overgrown calfâ€™s carcass dipped in bronze, rests deftly on its pedestal by two enormous, bulbous feet. These feet seem to have sprouted branches, spreading out like hollowed-out platypuses in the sky, twisting and turning oneâ€™s eyes and mind left and then right, defying space while freezing time. This truly is a powerful piece, one that evokes a rough and abstract majesty that is almost impossible to turn away from. It is unquestionably the sole standout in the collection.
