  • Collector’s Digest


    •    Jordan Wolfson’s multidisciplinary practice confronts the viewer with unsettling imagery as a commentary on contemporary society that draws particularly on internet culture and advertising.


    •    The present work depicts a stylised cartoon boy that recalls the sculptural puppet suspended by chains in Colored Sculpture which had its inaugural presentation at Tate Modern in 2018. The work references the racism of the characters Huck Finn, Howdy Doody, and the Mad magazine mascot Alfred E. Neuman amalgamated in the cartoon figure.
