Metal and cement resin composite, 24 ct gold leaf, steel scaffold pole, pine scaffold board.
Part of the Perfect Imperfection – The Art of Healing collection, first shown at Riflemaker, Soho.
The Gentrifier depicts a contemporary portrait sculpture with a Hipster style in a classical pose.
Rather than being healed (like the work in the rest of the collection) The Gentrifier is a healer, a regenerator. However, the gold leafing signifies only a skin deep facade.
