The second in a series of accessible art books, Front Forty Profiles, this book features the work of Los Angeles based artist Sean Duffy who is well known for his installations and sculptures. Duffy alters or fabricates materials—from car parts to bottle caps to office furniture—in order to create pieces that are provocative and functional. He is especially known for his two or three armed turntables that play records from various points simultaneously, creating a layered and self-referential effect. Duffy’s works also explore the ways masculinity is constructed in contemporary visual culture and how these constructions are used to define the boundaries between high art and popular culture. This profile includes many full-color photographs of Duffy’s work along with an essay by writer and critic Doug Harvey and an interview by art consultant Veronica Fernandez.
