We are thrilled to present a new online offering from the studio of Marc Etherington who has extended his sculptural series into the realm of the humble domestic alarm clocks.
This new series of alarm clocks joins a slue of Marc’s painted wooden sculpture works, such as his mischievous ciggie smoking cats, durry downing squirrels and self portrait figurines with his longtime imaginary pet dog ‘Granny’ (who Etherington has since willed into existence!
Marc Etherington’s works take pop culture, childhood memories and everyday domestic life as their subject matter, rendering them through a darkly humorous and sometimes absurd lens. References to Jurassic Park, Freddy Krueger, old-school video game aesthetics and boom-boxes point to experiences of coming of age in the 1980s and 1990s, while landscapes and interiors are depicted with an eye for amusing detail.
Self-taught, Etherington has maintained a consistent practice in painting and small sculpture for over a decade and more recently has worked with larger scale sculptural installations and ceramics. His sculptural works touch on themes such as mass production and collectibles.
