Mickey Sculpture Chanel , 2017
wood, paint and varnish
45 x 45 x 5cm
This monochromatic sculpture comprises a spray-painted block of wood with a cut-out Mickey Mouse silhouette, as though he has successfully escaped from the frame. A prominent Chanel logo is overlaid onto Mickey’s face, creating a synthesised vision of nostalgia, childhood and luxury. The streaks of white spray paint add variation and rhythm to the work. Like much of Auguste’s oeuvre, the freestanding sculpture is open to interpretation and can be displayed in multiple ways.
