Whether working in photography, sculpture, painting, or video, Gabriel Orozco fashions the unexpected out of familiar materials. One of his most well known works Black Kites (1997), a real human skull adorned with a graphite checkerboard pattern (what Orozco has called a “skull-ture”), explores the notion of time, dealing with the subjects of life, death, and existence.
