Burning Man 2008 Art: The Golden Homeboy by Todji Kurtzman

Center Camp Art

In their essence, Todji Kurtzman's sculptures are archetypal fertility goddesses and gods in contemporary form. They summon the ancient mystery described by Joseph Campbell as aesthetic arrest through the living object. Todji is the first sculptor in history to apply a signature forced perspective style to the age-old tradition of figurative sculpture, resulting in a radical and unique contemporary sculpture. Todji sculpts in clay and casts in bronze because he believes that his sculptures will stand the test of time, will translate well to large scale, and the permanence of bronze is an antithesis to our culture of the disposable.
