The Art + The Events + The What Was The Question?
California artist Sean Monaghan is one of my favorite/wittiest friends. A master of both animal and figurative work, heâ€™s a terrific conceptual sculptor too. We met about twenty years ago when I first began casting bronze at Sean’s then fledgling BronzeWorks of Santa Cruz*; bonding immediately through our mutualâ€”some might say, preternaturalâ€” â€śgiftâ€ťÂ for sarcastic repartee and smart aleck one-upmanship. I have many a fond memory of spending endless late-nights molding wax or sanding bronze until my fingers bled while laughing our heads off at God knows what.
