George Stoll at Michael Maloney Fine Art

GEORGE STOLL:
Selected Sculpture + Paintings
JANUARY 8 – FEBRUARY 12, 2011


"George Stoll is interested in the subject that is hiding in plain sight and what happens when representation becomes abstracted. In this work he investigates the poetics of American consumer culture and Catholic iconography, and by so doing creates beautiful sculptures that have the immediacy of Pop Art, the spare elegance of Minimalism, the appearance of a monochrome, and the telling ability to transcend their domestic function.

He fabricates by hand that which is found in everyday life: toilet paper, party streamers, sponges, American flags, Thanksgiving platters, Christmas Lights and most notably, Tupperware. In this exhibition at Maloney Fine Art, George will present his classic Tupperware configurations in elliptical forms, shelf sculptures and sponge paintings made of burned balsa wood."

George Stoll lives and works in Los Angeles.
A recipient of the Rome Prize, his work has been exhibited extensively and he has had numerous solo exhibitions, including Baldwin Gallery, Aspen; Angles, Los Angeles; Grant Selwyn Fine Art, New York; Gallery Seomi, Seoul; Windows Gallery, Brussels; Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Boston; and The Contemporary Art Center, Cincinnati. Stoll’s works have appeared in group exhibitions internationally, including Cheim & Read, New York;American Academy in Rome, Biagiotti Progetto Arte, Florence; Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac,Salzburg; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and The Drawing Center, New York.
