Tea with Julia Tom Sachs
13 June 2020
In this episode of Tea with Julia, Julia had tea with the American artist Tom Sachs whose genre defying mixed media sculptures, often recreate modern icons using everyday materials, showing all of the work that goes into producing an object - a reversal of modernization’s trend towards products with cleaner, simpler, and more perfect edges.
Sachs’s sculptures are conspicuously handmade; lovingly cobbled together from plywood, resin, steel, and ceramic. The scars and imperfections in the sculptures tell the story of how it came into being and remove it from the realm of miraculous conception.
