Metalsmith, Painter, Sculptor
Moss Manor is proud to welcome Christopher LaBauve as our August 2014 Guest Curator. Christopher’s wide range of skills elevate him from artist to prodigy. During the week, he works as a metalsmith, crafting elaborate custom metal commissions for commercial and residential installations. After hours, he produces unique and engaging visual artworks ranging from ironic sculptures to sleek abstracts.
His artist mediums often consist of unusual and reclaimed materials, with implied hints of dark humor and sarcasm. His private collection includes a life size statue of Michaelangelo’s David made from cigarette filters, oversize “polaroid” paintings, and hyper-realistic sculptures of food and household items crafted from metal. A recent collaboration with designer Sarah James Moss created dozens of butterfly wall sculptures from recycled aluminum cans and suspended by wire to create softly moving shadows.
We especially love Christopher’s sleek, dimensional abstract paintings. Created on board with a swirl of paint pigments, archival bookbinding resign and speedball ink used for tattoos, each painting is truly one of a kind.
The Christopher Labauve collection for Moss Manor features five never-seen-before abstracts in his signature black and white palette, each with it’s own glowing accent color. Explore the collection and learn more about the artist in our exclusive interview, coming soon!
