"Rock Star" by Don Porcella. 7x3x3 feet, Styrofoam and Aqua Resin, 2011. I hope you get the joke that it is art about art and meant to be funny. A rock about rock on the rocks. He is in a perfect spot to take cheesy tourist photos of the NY skyline. My take on roadside attraction art.
This sculpture deals with double meaning (rock about rock), using sculpture to reference sculpture (meta language) and self. I am a musician so I thought it fitting to do a tongue and cheek sculpture set in the rocks about rock made to look like rock.
