George Stoll, Untitled (Five in a Row), 1995(92 views)
Description: George Stoll, b. 1954, is an American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. Stoll fabricates by hand that which is factory-produced and presents these everyday objects, ie: sponges, tupperware, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. en mass, creating evocative installations that ask us to reconsider that which we take for granted. Stoll has continued to create reproductions of ordinary household objects, transforming them into extraordinary works of art. Much like Andy Warhol or Jasper Johns, Stoll is interested in the relationship of high art to consumer culture. It is upon close examination the viewer realizes that these are not store-bought objects assembled together, but carefully cast and sculpted objects. The tromp l'oeil effect is important to Stoll, but he also allows the human element--the artist's hand--to enter into his work. This sculpture, "Untitled (Five in a Row)" is from 1995. He uses beeswax, paraffin and pigment to create his renditions of the cups. The result is both beautiful and tactile. Once installed, its dimensions are approximately 30 x 9 x 4 inches. Stoll's art is found in such public collections as the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, Brandeis University-Rose Art Museum, University of Washington-Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
