About

Homemade Hermes Birkin Bag ( Kelly Green ) 2015, 15”x14.5”x1.5” inches unframed, 18.75 "x 18.75 x 2.5 framed Cast Resin, Edition of 15 Also available in Kelly Green, White, Gold and Silver. The frame is a white shadow box frame with plexiglass. The Homemade Hermes Birkin Bag is a sculpture that celebrates the beauty, and status, that the docents of fashion have bestowed upon coveted objects and accessories as such. In a Duchampian gesture of representation, the artist has created an object that has been “elevated to uselessness”, yet reveals much about our society’s infatuation with consumption and materialism. Cast in resin the sculpture becomes an apropos trope of our time, a perfect conversation starter. Shelter Serra’s paintings, sculptures, and drawings explore mass consumption and cultural identity. He juxtaposes subject matters that are both common and recognizable: a Campbell's Soup Can, a copper plated baseball hat, and a Hermes Birkin bag cast in resin, as examples. By portraying these sculptures of aesthetic contemplation. “Refining an aesthetic and making beautiful objects, whether that be a dress, bag, or sculpture," says Serra, "is a celebration of pure creativity and personal vision.” Shelter Serra, who is related to minimalist master Richard Serra, has collaborated with the Art Production Fund, Helmut Lang, Converse, and Chanel. Solo exhibitions of his work have been presented at BTW Gallery in Geneva, Anonymous Gallery in Mexico City, Beams B Gallery in Tokyo, and Marlborough Gallery in New York, among other galleries. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as Philadelphia’s ICA, Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore, and Urbis Art Centre in Manchester
