Elizabeth McGrath’s sculptures look like demented toys, adorable yet disturbed. They have bloodshot eyes, open wounds, and dripping teeth, but there is still something alluring about their size and neediness. They look like…just maybe…with some love…you could fix them.
“Inspired by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, [McGrath] brings forth a new cavalcade of creatures from the darker corners of the streets, the city, the imagination. It is this melancholy interaction between man-made status symbols and suffering specimens of nature that make up her intricate body of work.”
