Good form

These are not your typical toys. Sculpture, which features the work of Heather Benning, Istvan Zsako and Goody-B Wiseman, is a myriad of playful figures. Each artist creates interactive art through the mastery of sculpture to provoke a sense of warmth and curiosity. Benning's pieces are 3D sculptures with a twist, her dioramas have motion sensors that light up the work. It's a clever way to invoke the feeling of life in pieces like "Field Hand's Trailer" and "Last Bank," which show images of homes. Zsako's bronze warrior sculptures are an interesting bunch with ancestral figures and expressions. Wiseman's work features small bronze statues of children with interesting animal masks (pictured) and seafaring creatures like the green female "Sea-Beastress." Perhaps most engaging is "Perfect Nature World," in which children in animal masks dance in a circle with squirrels. The masks are interchangeable so please do touch the art.

To April 26, Gallery Page and Strange, 1869 Granville Street, 422-8995
