Adrian Saxe was born in 1943. He received his BFA atOtis Art Institute and his MFA at Chouinard Art School.
I really enjoy Saxe's ability to maintain functionality while still having his pieces be conceptually charged. I am pleased by the juxtaposition between ornate details and rough stands. This ties in with my cactus project because I am trying to represent something tough and dangerous like a cactus, but show how they're represented as a cute commodity.
