Eugenio Merino’s Witty Political Sculptures

Artist Eugenio Merino produces overtly political sculptures.  His witty work explores issues such as class, violence, war, religion.  For example, the piece Redecorate Your Life is an ultra-realistic silicone model of a homeless man who seemingly fell asleep (or died?) while flipping through an Ikea catalog.  His home, however, is simply the packaging of the items he was glancing at.  Merino’s work cleverly comments on materialism, poverty, and  homogeneity.  His sculptures make a statement with a sense of humor while retaining a sense of gravity.
