Ever wish that antlers grew in the form of luxury logos? Peter Gronquist is your man. Gronquist is a Portland, Oregon based artist whose Neo-Baroque work explores, what he refers to as, “hyper-American culture.” He frequently uses taxidermy animals in his work to represent innocence and gilded guns to represent aggression. Gronquist further appropriates designer branding to contemplate the role of consumerism in society. His work presents a timely critique of gun culture showing how the weapons can be both empowering and destructive. While his work may be rooted in serious topics it is also wonderfully playful. Gronquist works with master gold-platers to make some of the shiniest artwork we’ve ever seen. Get into it!
