Wax Sculptures by Artist Yoram Wolberger

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Most of Yoram Wolberger’s work featured here is made from casting wax and pigment with the exception of the large scale public art piece entitled Millennium Tower that’s made out of reinforced fiberglass, steel, and urethane paint. He depicts childhood toys and domestic objects with an exaggerated scale. This scale distorts both the meaning of these common objects and highlights the significance of stereotypes that these everyday items may hold. Many of the manufacturing flaws commonly found in cast plastic toys made in China or other countries abroad are brought to light by the artist’s unique consideration and depiction. Wolberger was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and lives and works there and in San Francisco, California.
