  • Bo Gehring, Pinky, computer-machined insulation foam, 26” x 18” x 22”, 2009


Bo Gehring, who will be exihibiting as part of a group show at Van Brunt Gallery in Beacon this month, had this to say about Pinky: “Close up, nothing is what it seems. Hair isn’t hair, skin isn’t skin, ears aren’t ears. But viewed at a normal distance this pink foam head has the individual nuance and gesture of a formal portrait; it pushes the boundary between figuration and abstraction. The slices were planned to be commedia dell’arte-striped colors over bronze, but pink insulation foam brought an irresistible life of its own to the piece.” Portfolio: www.bogehring.com.
