The Final Frontier of Sculpture

"The final frontier of sculpture" - those are the words of the artist Christopher Romer.

Here are a few of mine. He titled this particular installation of wooden wall sculptures The Charmers. Well, that pretty much sums it up for me.

I love everything about it. The obvious care taken to shape and embellish each individual piece, the juxtaposition of cool modern shapes against warm patina finishes, the random yet orderly placement across huge spaces and especially the fact that the collection was amassed over 10 years and it's still expanding.

If you're in the SF Bay area - you're in luck. This exhibition is at The Compound Gallery on 65th Street in Oakland now through April 24th. 

Who's in? Drinks at ERA afterwards.
