the four seasons

Images taken at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, from "The Four Seasons," by the artist duo known as Guerra de la Paz. They assemble their sculptures from secondhand clothes and other readily available materials. Baroque and ornate, the sculptures display an exceptionally high level of labor-intensity while maintaining their sense of humor.
Each of the scultpures relates to one of the four seasons, and you don't need to know a whole lot more than that to evaluate them. Their use of the figure comes off as awkward and excessively illustrational, but the big abstract pieces have spirit, and a room with four trees, each in it's own season, was charming to the point of inducing guilt. Although definitely a real-art experience, I could see kids getting into it in a big way. The one inside my head had a good time.
