Drawing from a mix of sources—including Japanese cartoons, the work of Jeff Koons and Félix González-Torres, Minimalism, and Judeo-Christian iconography—Rogério Degaki produces cartoonish, candy-colored sculptures that are at once irresistibly cute and bitingly subversive. Many of his figures, animals, and objects seem disabled or in danger: a bluebird perches on a melting stump; models of Takashi Murakami’s Flowers are devoid of their smiling faces. Through his works, Degaki simultaneously critiques and revels in contemporary visual and consumer culture, revealing darkness behind its façade of simplicity and abundance.
