Based on an untitled masterpiece of antiquity found in the Acropolis Museum, “The Artist, His Father, Son, and Alter-Ego” cannibalizes its classical appropriations through modern industrial means.

A set of plaster floor sculptures looking much like egg-shaped clusters are abstracted topographies of the rugged landscape that comprise the country itself. A self-portrait in plaster, rubber, and wood chaise lounge suggests Freudian psychoanalysis as much as it self-mythologizes the artist himself. The strange bust of a young boy carved out of locally sourced marble has a peculiar asymmetry that is consistent with the idiosyncrasies found in the oeuvre of this sculptor.
