 Clare Graham first solo museum exhibitionClare Graham’s First Solo Museum Exhibition
at Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles
September 13, 2014 – January 4, 2015

This will be the first solo museum exhibition of contemporary craft artist Clare Graham, who utilizes discarded materials and found objects he has collected to create large-scale sculptures, installations, and furniture. Using buttons, paint-by-numbers paintings, grocery lists collected by a homeless neighbor, puzzle pieces, and other materials, Graham fashions tremendous structures reminiscent of natural forms, Brancusi-influenced towers, and intricately crafted furniture. Some of Graham’s accumulative sculptures can reflect 20-30 years of collecting a single kind of found object. As the former senior art director for Disneyland, Graham’s practical experience as a costume and set designer have informed his practice as a sculptor.
