"The subject of the sculpture is an anonymous Washington Square Park visitor. My initial intent was that I would make a sculpture that was very much my kind of aesthetic. Very stylized figuration. I think that really came through, but I found myself loosening up to match and emulate Brett's painting style, as well as to accommodate Shaun's style." - Derek Weisberg

"At first it was tricky, but after about 20 minutes or so I realized that it was the exact same as painting a face on a flat surface. In some ways you have to think like sculptor but approach it like a painter would sculpt a painting. I think most artists are used to isolation and being by themselves. It's nice to be in somebody else's studio, especially if you can hang out with other artists that you admire and respect, you start talking about art and it opens it up." - Brett Amory

"I consider photography to be a form of sculpture as well. Essentially you are just sculpting with light. So I think there are more similarities between the three of us than there are differences. I think the differences are just choice of medium." - Shaun Roberts

This piece of original artwork will be accompanied by a set of 4 additional process photo C-prints from Shaun Roberts and includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance signed by Brett Amory, Derek Weisberg, Shaun Roberts and 1xRUN.

ABOUT Brett Amory + Derek Weisberg + Shaun Roberts:
Brett Amory is an artist currently residing in Oakland CA. Bretts broad recognition has been gained for his ongoing series “Waiting” (2001–), depicting anonymous commuters he encountered in urban settings; it was lauded for its psychological depth and representations of alienation in contemporary society. These paintings are based on photographs taken by the artist, who explained he was drawn to subjects who appeared out of place, alienated, or awkward. In the more recent paintings from the series, Amory began to eliminate parts of the architecture or scenery to heighten the sense of isolation. He paints in a realist style characterized by gestural brushwork and the use of translucent layers of paint for a hazy effect
