Mike Grucza plays with the “idea” of architecture. Embowered Odalisque has a humorous approach to the structure of a young girl’s dress. You enter the sculpture and become a part of it. The oversized feel adds to the fun-house interpretation. We are all children, entirely out of scale to the world around us. The plantings at the base of the dress will create patterns that enliven the dress.

Mike specializes in .ne art restoration, speci.cally 20th Century furniture and architectural objects. This is his first time exhibiting with LSE.
