We Beasties: Explorations of the Intersections Between Humans andAnimals is a solo show featuring the sculptures of Minneapolis artist Kyle Fokken.
The sculptural work may at first seem playful and whimsical. Indeed, Fokken’s work is formally inspired by antique toys and folk art. Animals and machines morph into beautifully crafted fantastic beasts, alluding to science fiction and simultaneously the dream-world. But spend time with the work or talk with the artist and you’ll find that his work is rich in content. Meet the artist at this gallery reception.
