'General Bronze'

Marisol

1997 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

Marisol's works often engage the viewer through humor, which can disguise an underlying political or social commentary.  General Bronze was cast and fabricated at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture from an earlier work, General Plywood. The artist has depicted a haughty, military leader whose image is based upon General Juan Gomez, a Venezuelan dictator. His commanding presence on horseback resembles many other public homages to political figures placed in town squares. However, Marisol has referred to this sculpture as an "anti-monument."
