by: PHOTO COURTESY: CCC – Christopher Wagner’s ‘Standing Coyote’ is among 15 sculptures in ‘Solitary Gestures’ opening Jan. 13 in the Alexander Gallery.
“Solitary Gestures” showcases approximately 15 sculptural works that explore figurative and animal forms constructed of reclaimed materials such as lumber, hog skin and paint.
Wagner’s work aims to emphasize the spiritual or intellectual longings of humans. His formal depiction of both human and animal forms uses elongation of limbs and necks to convey a yearning to extend beyond ourselves.
PHOTO COURTESY: CCC – Christopher Wagner’s ‘A Standing Figure 2’ will be on display at Clackamas Community College starting in January.
