Gregor Kregar

Summer 2009

From live sheep to ceramic piggy banks and giant, floating geometric shapes, Gregor Kregar’s sculptural menagerie suggests that he is not an artist seduced by a single subject. Nor can one material tie him down; he picks and chooses between glass and steel, plastic and terracotta, cardboard, video, photography and livestock. Like the varied combinations of polyhedrons he creates, this Slovenian-born, Auckland-based artist is indeed multi-faceted. – Talia Linz
