Sponges
by sabine7 / March 25, 2005


George Stoll does not refer to this work, Untitled Sponge Painting (9 Pack - Multi Colored), as a sculpture but as a painting. His sponges are in fact pieces of balsa wood with holes burned into them to fool the eye into thinking they are the real thing. Stoll uses the candy colours we are accustomed to seeing at the hardware or grocery store so that his paintings are as sponge-like as they can be. Ironically, from a distance, the sculptures resemble monochromatic blocks of colour.
