Claire Palfreyman

hoody1hoody 2I just found this in The Black Swan art gallery in Frome, Somerset.

The Sculptures are by London based artist Claire Palfreymen.

The ‘hoodie boys’ sulptures, using animal heads, horns/antlers/muzzles etc. aim to emphasise the ‘natural’ element of young male aggression as rite of passage, while also using these animal elements to emphasise our growing cultural attitude to youth as ‘feral’, the media seeking to herd them together as equally violent, equally responsible. equally dangerous.

He now has a new home in my studio. I love him.
