George Stoll handcrafts items that are normally mass factory produced to create viewer-challenging installations whereby highly realistic objects are abstracted beyond their “domestic function.” Included are sponges, toilet paper, and paper towels. In creating these works, he is focused on the relationship between consumer culture and high art. View more of his work available at: https://bit.ly/3pHiY0F
Stoll’s first exhibition was in 1994 in Los Angeles, and was titled Tupperware. Stoll elevates what is usually considered disposable to art by asking viewers to take another look at those objects that surround them. He has been showing his work internationally since 1994 including one person shows at Anthony Grant in New York; Paule Anglim in San Francisco; Angles in Los Angeles; Windows in Brussels, Belgium and Gallery Seomi in Seoul, Korea among others.
In 1996 The Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati exhibited his work in a two man show with Mark Bennett and in 2000 his work was surveyed with Clay Ketter’s at the Rose Museum at Brandeis University. George Stoll’s work is in several permanent collections including The Hammer Museum, UCLA; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los angeles and The Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington. In 2005 he became a Fellow of The American Academy in Rome.
