Reshare from @artwisecurators of Man & Models Sculptor, performance artist and jeweller Andrew Logan has created ‘Man & Models’ for this year’s Cure3, an example of his tendency to mix media and challenge conventional art values. The artist, whose work has been described as “the art of popular poetry and metropolitan glamour”, has worked across the fields of sculpture, stage design, drama, opera, parades, festivals and interior design. A qualified architect, Logan combines fantasy and real objects to create unique and engaging artworks. For this piece, Logan has used pink mirror fragments acquired from a Jaipur glass merchant, jewels and vibrant pink glitter to create a 3D heart. On top of the heart perch seven hand-painted figurines; an additional model of Superman stands alone at the front of the cube. Through this work, Logan explores celebrity culture and stardom, as the models on top of the heart are rendered insignificant or aspirational by the superhero standing proud at the front. Whilst creating the heart, the artist used a recycled light fitting within the internal construction, taken from his friend Chrissy Robinson, who passed away in 2019. The artist thus provides us with a metaphor; his friend will always have a place within his heart. This unique work by @andrewlogangallery will be on show @Bonhams1793 from 5-8 September 2020 and sold online – all the money raised from @Cure3Exhibition will go to @cureparkinsonstrust to help find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. Works will be available to buy from 8am on 8 September.
