Anthony Sonnenberg
Thursday, October 5, 12:00–1:00pm

Anthony Sonnenberg, Character Study for Silenus, Archival Inkjet Print, Materials of crown - Hand cut and shaped brass sheeting, brass piping, red coral, silver solder. 2014.

Crowns and candlesticks— things made in the moments just before a crash are the subject of my work. Rather than casting judgments, I seek to actively engage with and bear witness to the tragic and beautiful nature of this cycle. My making comes from seeing the writing on the wall and not knowing what to do about it.
