Authority Figures

Authority Figures is an exhibition of dioramas by British artist Neil M. Perry (Portland, OR) and craft artist Sarah Christoph (Los Angeles, California) showing through February at Pop Gallery (3505 Helms Ave. Culver City, Los Angeles)

Working in collaboration the pair produced scenes that depict different figures of authority and how they exert influence.

Sarah created needle-felt versions of six different creatures using Neil’s sketches as reference. These figurines were then placed in diorama boxes painted by Neil.

The work will be displayed as part of a mural that ties the individual pieces together into one larger story.

In addition to these unique items the show will feature new drawings and paintings by Neil as well as a number of screen-printed items.

Sarah is an East Coast transplant with a degree in fine arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She has lived and shown in the Los Angeles area since 2005.

Neil is originally from the North East of England. He is currently living and working as an artist in Portland, Oregon having re-located in early 2010. You can see examples of his previous work by visiting his official site:

Opening Reception - Friday Fourth of February, 7pm-10pm.

30% of all sales from the show will be donated to 826LA, a Los Angeles based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills.
