Group exhibition by Reines, Torres, and Lawrence
Sculptural Etherealism…a Reflection on Sculptures and the Human Culture . Monarch | Arredon Contemporary is pleased to introduce a group exhibit by three artists whose works highlight periods of time where sculptures played a key role in our human culture and remind us that society, time and the environment will always affect how we see the world around us and ultimately our own spirituality.
Sculptures have been part of the human culture since the demise of the Neanderthals and have played a variety of roles, paralleling (and consequently documenting) the evolution of humankind.
Though idealized and drawing from religious sources, sculptures such as Michelangelo’s “David” (1501 – 1504 CE), spoke to and celebrated, for the first time, the nobility and heroism of the average man.
At the beginning of the third millennia, many Contemporary sculptors have returned to documenting our evolution while others have turned to the human form as the mechanism with which to explore deeper, existential subjects and themes.
