Christopher Astley reappropriates bags and containers to use as molds for making sculptures. He fills them with wet concrete and lets gravity reshape the original into a new, often imperfect or misshapen, form. In this iteration, Astley experimentally translates volume into a playful two-dimensional sculptural field - a feat otherwise impossible in his three-dimensional works.
Framing options are black or white painted wood, 3/4" wide flat face and 1" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
