Jason Briggs lives in rural Tennessee where he teaches part time in Nashville and spends the rest of the time in his studio creating these bizarre porcelain sculptures. Through his work, Jason is searching for a fresh perspective and trying to create objects that he's never quite seen before and "whose inherent mystery and intrigue quietly insists upon viewer interaction." In his words, "Obvious sexual references, along with an extravagant, fetish-like attention to surface, can arouse a yearning to touch as powerful as the act itself."

Ben Butler's latest installation, Unbounded, is a light, meticulously-constructed sculpture made from around 10,000 hand-cut poplar sticks—a stylistic departure from the dense wood pieces we posted about in 2013. The piece is currently up in the Rice Gallery at Rice University in Houston. Butler chose poplar for its low-cost, malleability, and abundance.

Korean artist June Lee's work is based on the social phenomena of the bystander, what she calls the "Bystander Effect." "Countless things Countless things that happen quietly in our society are cases of bystander effect that make select individuals into outcasts. Thinking how I can become a social outcast due to the distant indifferent bystanders, I find this a serious problem that can’t be overlooked in silence.

Dealing with questions like what is human and where are memories, the sculpture installation Intimate Vestiges by Fiona Roberts transforms the mundane into psychedelic poetry. A rug of fingers, faces in pillows and mouths on chairs, these anthropomorphized objects allow viewers to rethink what just is and what is taken for granted.

Definitely something to check out if you are one of our London readers or about to take a trip there: The Serpentine presents the work of late American sculptor Duane Hanson (1925-1996) in his first survey show in London since 1997. Throughout his forty-year career, Hanson created lifelike sculptures portraying working-class Americans and overlooked members of society. Reminiscent of the Pop Art movement of the time, his sculptures transform the banalities and trivialities of everyday life into iconographic material. The exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery presents key works from the artist’s oeuvre.
