Thomas Houseago (1972- )
Fine Art Ordinance Obligation of 9360 Wilshire Boulevard
Houseago has created a body of primarily sculptural work that simultaneously exudes a sense of physical strength and emotional vulnerability. While his works are not strictly realistic, Houseago takes cues from the world around him. He says, "in my approach to making sculpture, I try to be honest to the experience of looking and recording. You could argue that sculpture is a dramatization of the space between your eye and the world, between what you see and feel, and memory."
Fun Fact: Houseago was born in England and now lives and works in Los Angeles.
