Description

FOR SALE:

Large 30 Inch diameter film reel mixed media sculpture by RALPH ALLEN MASSEY (born 1938), Mixed Media Art 6 WAITING MEN. There's a universality to this piece. Take a moment. It expands consciousness. These men are on death row and await their called name. These men are writers in Hollywood and await their big break. These men are in the queue for something and it'd be totally foreboding.... This is a film reel? A film wheel? The real reel and the real repetition of waiting, the replication of the experience of waiting--we are different by a nose's millimeter, by a year, by a jot of a thought of the agony of the spun wheel of Fortuna. We hang our hopes as she spins and wait. For this wheel. The artist also works in sculpture and film design.

Bio from web: Ralph Allen Massey is an American visual artist who was born in 1938. Ralph Allen Massey has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Avenue 50 Studio and at the Skidmore Contemporary Art . Many works by the artist have been sold at auction, including 'WATER NYMPH' sold at Clark's Fine Art Gallery & Auctioneers Inc. 'Important Modern & Contemporary American, European, Asian & Latin American Paintings, Prints, Sculpture & Objects' in 2014.He worked on Battlestar Galactica for their Conceptional Models.
Ralph Allen Massey has been practicing art for over fifty years and has exhibited his work all around the country. Combining popular imagery of sculpture, figures and paintings in an original composition, Massey manipulates and redefines these familiar icons. Juxtaposing extremely high and fine art with more kitsch and playful pieces breathes new life into these well-known works of art.
