Consumerism and our worship of all things material is a too familiar theme in the art world and beyond. Everyday disposable objects take on permanence as cast bronze sculptures by Luis Fernando Ponce and are further glorified when photographed as portraits. How long have we been so devoted to products and what they stand for? Probably longer than we realize or like to admit. Will the greed of branding, shopping, consuming ever be eroded?
