Spotlight: Lars Fisk, Queens International 4

Its easy to miss Lars Fisk's The Triumph of Styrofoam, a marble sculpture made to look like a discarded coffee cup ( Look for it on the floor to the left of my work, Guayabera Series). This "finely carved marble sculpture asks us to take a second look at the garbage we usually ignore. As facsimiles of real objects, these decoys emit an effortless sense of life, asking us to confront our relationship to consumption and waste. 
Fisk employs traditional sculptural materials in unexpected ways."

Queens International 4 is on view at the Queens Museum of  Art until April 26th, 2009.
