Cast resin: sculptures by Adam Hynes and Carl Greenwood
After a decade working as a sculptor commercially this is a debut exhibit by the artist. Carnival for Europe is both a celebratory and critical depiction of a European historical identity. A portrait of a wonderfully liberal well fed and well armed people using the aesthetic currency which has persisted through the ages from classical Greeks to the superheroes of American comic books. It is directly inspired by His time spent sculpting prototype superheroes and super villains using prints of Greek and Roman sculpture as reference
This piece can be viewed as a preview to a larger project comprised of a growing number of figures.
