Pint-sized Nude on Plaid

“A weirder, more diffuse sense of humour animates an assemblage by New Zealand-born, London-based Francis Upritchard,” the Los Angeles Times ‘Culture Monster’ describes in a review of the three-artist show ‘Bush of Ghosts’ on through 25 August at Los Angeles gallery Cherry and Martin. “‘The Horse’ uses an antique piece of gymnastic equipment and a plaid blanket as a pedestal for three pint-sized sculptures: a nude man, mug and cap.” Upritchard has two solo museum exhibitions this year, one at Nottingham Contemporary and A Long Wait at the Center for Contemporary Art, Cincinnati, which runs through September 2012.
