Brian Wondergem’s esoteric approach includes sculptural installation and assemblage. His work operates like markers on a guided tour – both as evidence to a path and signifier for the direction. Often sourced from the everyday environment and familiar materials, his sculptures are constructed so that anyone could understand the cultural design and use value of the objects yet still question their middle class purposefulness.

Some things have changed, but there is still so much to do! Things have improved for women and artists of color over the last thirty years, but let's face it, the celebrity-obsessed art market and the galleries and museums that fuel it, really SUCK!
