Art Concrete Guest Gallery: Charles Lewton-Brain
Concrete, telephone. 28" high. 1995.
"I have a history of concrete objects, concrete coffee pot (properly silversmithed interior, a concrete Teapot, a concrete Necklace. All the objects deal with juxtaposition, retained functionality, contrast, 'Memphis' references and parody, architectural thoughts; stained bridge abutments, marine concrete, monolithic form. A cone for monolith; simplicity, focus, ancient reference; sand pile, missile cone, technology/raw rock/artifact juxtapositions.
"The telephone is fully functional as a speaker phone or with an attached hand-set and part of the work is a play of function/non-function."
