Jonathan Monk Inflated Deflated at Casey Kaplan

The current show at Casey Kaplan I was anticipating a pop contrived show of Jeff Koons-esque work. Not only was I wrong, I was pleasantly surprised with an intimate and engaging exhibition of Jonathan Monk stainless steel sculptures of deflated rabbits paired with the hyperrealistic paintings of his art making process.
Oil paintings titled Production Stills lend to a very intimate dialogue about how profoundly the artist is engaged with his body of work in creating this kind of mass consumer product-come-fine art sculpture.
