Artist: Helen Altman. Sculpture courtesy of the artist and Talley Dunn Gallery, Dallas
The final price for this sculpture will be MATCHED, thereby doubling the donation to impactful cancer research at Children's Research Institute.
Many of my works use commonplace materials and objects. I respond to readymade objects that are often discards or flawed in some obvious way. Alterations in these familiar things elevate them and draw parallels to our own human predicament.
I am also interested in mimics and replicas. It is a happy moment for me when
I can create objects that are simultaneously convincing and yet blatantly absurd in their obvious artificiality.
