Greg Brotherton’s dystopian sculptures will mesmerize you

We guarantee a completely unproductive hour or so of your online time if you go to Greg Brotherton’s website. His eerie sculptures, of which there are many, are practically hypnotic. You’ll find yourself trying to put these mechanized creepy-crawlies into some kind of context or narrative, which isn’t hard to do. They could be a prehistoric ancestor from the dreams of Edward Gorey and William Gibson. Telephones, antique cash registers, beer taps, and other repurposed objects are all fair game for Brotherton. Brotherton claims his work is “mythological in nature, revealed through a dystopian view of pop culture.” He also confesses that it’s compulsive. We like how he captures that in the way the different figures seem to spread out, morphing away from the various outmoded devices.
