Neufeld, from Osler Saskatchewan, is ex military and a former firefighter. He works with concepts of masculine identity, currently in the form of ceramic transformations of engines and transmissions.
Taking a typically male pre-occupation with muscle cars, he replicates these components in ceramic. Finished like fine china, these sculptures take a grease monkey's love of car parts and transform them into something precious. Placed on teacarts or chaises longue, these are made the object of attention the equivalent of a prized tea service or reclining nude.
Show runs: April 15, 2011 - July 3 2011 at Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George.
