Pet Rock

patinated bronze, lacquer, enamel - Edition of 55 [+ 2 AP], 2019

2019 Gattuso Edition published by C Magazine.

Pet rock
is a hand-patinated and painted bronze sculpture cast from a found stone. Exploring the psychological phenomenon of pareidolia, in which recognizable patterns are seen in random visual material, Pet rock bears an uncanny resemblance to a face with two eyes and a furrowed brow.
