What an interesting piece of art! Most of us have outgrown our Crayolas by the time we hit puberty. Happily, Herb Williams never did. A sculptor who ingeniously uses crayons as his medium, Williams creates works that are not only strikingly beautiful but playfully allude to serious cultural icons—like Damien Hirst’s controversial diamond-and-platinum encrusted cranium. There’s also that unmistakably happy smell, of course, and a palette that can’t help but pop. Signed by the artist on verso, dated and titled with edition numbers. Cleat mounted for flush wall hanging. Made of cut silver and multicolored crayons, wood and two-part epoxy resin. 16″ x 10″ x 4″.
