In “Two Heads Are Better Than One,” illustrator, sculptor and occasional Current contributor Jeremiah Teutsch presents a collection of striking, three-dimensional works inspired by traditional death masks. Teutsch’s statement about these large-scale sculptures sets the somber, reverent tone of the exhibit as a whole: “The idea of this show came about after my father passed away. I started drawing enormous Big Giant Heads sinking into the ground, as mountainous monuments of grief. These are scaled-down monuments of grief. They’re similar in form and function to death masks. The day before my father died, he asked me to make a death mask of him. He was cremated before I got to see him. So, now I’m making these big giant heads as recompense for not being able to make his.” Following the opening receptions, "Two Heads Are Better Than One" remains on view by appointment through March 25.
