Bates Wilson Guns

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 in Contemporary

Sculptor Bates Wilson has always chosen subjects that are near and dear to America. His newest collection tackles one of the most topical and controversial subjects; Guns. From “Just Do It” to “Pow” these guns are unlike any you’ve seen before, suffused with ironic pop references and larger than life scale they are powerful statements about a powerful subject. Conceived as a group and created in a short, six month span the guns are a unique and important body of work within Bates’ oeuvre, perhaps never to be duplicated or re-visited with such focus. Love them or hate them, it’s up to the individual. Take a look at Bates’ guns and decide for yourself where you stand.
