Troy Coulterman’s sculptures bring the sensibilities of comic book art to life. Though no direct narrative is assigned for the viewer, the characters and forms appear ripped straight from the pages of pulp and sci-fi tales. Coulterman was last featured on HiFructose.com here. Next month, the artist has a new show at Beinart Gallery, with the above piece included in the mix.
“Coulterman crafts three-dimensional human figures in seductive colours, with exaggerated features and forms that are directly influenced from graphic novels,” a statement says. “Absurd, abstract forms engulf, drip and extrude from the figures he creates. These forms that surround or become part of the figures are visual metaphors of absurd anomalies and emotional states the characters he creates are experiencing.”
