Using discarded stuffed toys and other local thrift shop finds, artist Ross Bonfanti manipulates these mass-produced objects to construct original mixed media sculptures predomantly made in concrete. Bonfanti relates his own lifelong emotional experiences to his work while exploring themes commenting on commodity fetishism and the disposableness of consumer pop culture. Through the juxtaposition of materials, he creates an arresting tension between the expectation of softness and the reality of hardness, between the fleeting and the permanent, between the memories of childhood and the stresses of adulthood. They are touched with both humor and pathos.
