New J.Shea Sculpture at Cyclone!

Posted: June 18, 2013 in Uncategorized

Local artist and sculpture extraordinaire J.Shea recently put the finishing touches on a new piece that is gracing the Cyclone offices.  This Portland themed work features bikes and cyclists of all types from tall bikes and cargo bikes to high-wheelers, MTN bikers and BMXers all crossing a representation of one of Portland's ubiquitous bridges!  A cycling enthusiast, Shea creates mixed media sculptures out of discarded gadgets and lost cultural icons that are fused together with hand sculpted figures and animal forms carved out of clay and wood, imbuing them with  a sense of adaptability, transience, and animism as they are pulled out of context, re-purposed and re-contextualized!  You can see more photos of this spectacular piece on our facebook page, check out more of his work at j.shea9.com or stop by the office see it in person!
