Rodin, Morris, Cézanne, Matisse, Man Ray, Dali (2015)
For Project Beard Gavin groomed and cropped his luxuriant beard into the persona’s of 6 historical patricians of 19th and 20th century art. This chimeric shapeshifting has been a consistent thread through his work since reinventing the popularist ‘wax-work’ in 1991 with his iconic sculpture ‘pop’. This new series is lighthearted take on the charitable fundraiser, with a poetically thoughtful perspective on gender, social and art-historical politics.
