About Artist:

Norman Gekko is an emerging artist who delights in parodying the hypocrisy and excesses of western culture. 

 

Most often, Gekko produces multiple individual pieces of work as part of a series (inbred series, Paper balls etc); willingly and enthusiastically generating new works with intensity, until exhausting both the subject and the artist.

 

This sculpture belongs to his “Beehives” series. 

About Artwork:

Beehive #41, which weighs approximately 10 kg, is fixed on a white wooden base to contrast with the predominantly black colours of the sculpture.

 

For this sculpture, Gekko selected recovered items belonging to our everyday universe which, once sprayed a uniform golden colour, were then dipped into a transparent resin bath.

 

Through this act of spraying the objects are ascribed to a kind of ‘golden age ‘ – whereby the artist’s later treatment of the objects can be viewed as an attempt to save them from destruction and disappearance; symbolically providing them a form of duration and permanence.

 

“I take great pleasure in transforming the everyday detritus of our lives into something aesthetically beautiful. For me the ‘Beehives’ series represent the intrinsic obsolescence of our existence and a desire to preserve the past and the present” - Norman Gekko, 2017

 

A miscellany of childhood toys, obsolete electrical components alongside discarded utilitarian and personal items; Gekko’s Beehives rail against the modern world’s preoccupation with material accumulation and the relentless assault by information, images, sounds and other stimuli, which render our psychological-self paralysed and impotent.
