Peat Duggins: St. Boniface's Last Days
September 10 - October 21, 2010
3913 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002
Taking the medieval legend of the German St. Boniface, who chopped down a sacred oak tree and used the wood to build a chapel, as a starting point, Peat Duggins’s new exhibition St. Boniface’s Last Days at Art Palace takes an ironic view of the legend. Duggins creates a series of sculptures in which a chapel is torn down in order to build an oak tree. Using the Christian legend, Duggins questions the nature of religious belief through expertly crafted Pop Art sculpture.
