Elevator By Alessandro Gallo (All Photos By Gail)
If you are intrigued and delighted by the idea of perusing an exhibition made up of hyper-realist sculptures depicting Humans with Animal Heads, then you will love Italian artist Alessandro Gallo’s latest body of work, For Some Reason (the follow up to his 2014 show, Strani Incontri) up now at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

If these petite ceramic figures cause you to do a double take, it might be because Gallo bases each of his hybrid characters on real life models, and his attention to detail is meticulous.

Easily the most popular piece in the show is this miniature glass Elevator, crowded with various breeds of anthropomorphic birds, along with a Buffalo, a Cat and a Deer, all eager to get to the their destination floor. Elevator is a private client commission that was loaned to the gallery for this exhibit. It is pretty sweet.

Except for one figure flaunting an exposed, uncircumcised peen, the exhibit it totally family-friendly! Bring the kids!
