Joshua Raffell makes beautifully grotesque sculptures from a multitude of found and collected materials. They are at once absurd, monstrous and playful. Roughly hewn, Raffell’s figures are expressive, raw and overtly sexual. Huge phalluses and masturbating moving parts are intended to provoke. Raffell seeks to unravel the repressed and uses the gratuitously sexual to challenge established hierarchies defined by the dominant, straight, white male. Raffell’s intention is to bring to attention the marginal, the suppressed and the base in order to readdress taboos prescribed by prevailing rule and taste makers.
Exhibted at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods, in January 2015.
