      Todd Pavlisko: Pop Supernatural

      In Pop Supernatural, Ohio native and New York City-based artist Todd Pavlisko presents a multifaceted installation of three interconnected bodies of work that reflect on cultural change and critique. Suspended in the Weston’s street-level atrium, Pavlisko’s All the Money I Found in a Year revisits his ongoing series by configuring the now hundreds of glistening gold-plated coins into a beautiful cosmos-like orb. Directly beneath, he introduces the Untitled, Sledgehammer series, metaphorically punctuating the ground with pounding spheres of sledgehammers, suggesting the meteoric impact of cultural currents.

      A host of iconic and historic figures will dominate the Weston’s lower galleries in the form of enormous carved wooden PEZ dispensers. The dual gravity of the sculptures’ remarkable physical presence coupled with the subjects’ unarguable philosophical contributions and the ideals they embody throughout our shared cultural history belies the curious utilitarian twist of the sculptures. This contradictory bold admiration for the lived biographies of these titans of cultural progress, expressed via a ubiquitous popular candy dispenser historically associated with pop culture icons and cartoon heroes, encapsulates the unique challenges of our age and questions who and what are deemed worthy of celebration.Show more
