- Joe Sheehan : other stories : stone works : 2002-2012 / curated by Helen Kedgley
NB1108 SHE (Call Number)
"Other Stories is Joe Sheehan's first survey exhibition, bringing together thirty sculptural objects from the past ten years of his practice. Sheehan has fashioned a unique identity for himself creating work which explores the contemporary relevance of stone carving in New Zealand. His exquisitely carved, carefully considered pieces - beautiful replicas of everyday objects in stone - engage with the classic tradition of stone sculpture, yet confound the usual expectations of the medium. Sheehan's body of work in the last decade has attracted considerable critical acclaim for its technical skill, which is always both eloquent and restrained, and for his repositioning of stone carving in a contemporary conceptual framework."--Publisher website.
