Jon Pylypchuk’s work evolves from the realm of the pathetic. His drawings and sculptures bring to life a make-believe world populated by abused cuddly creatures, where emotional frailty and menace are worn on every shirt sleeve and pet tag. Mirroring the naked state of the human condition, Pylpchuk’s tragic-comic figures are both loveable and loathsome, recreating instances of pitiful irony that ring all too true. In I Miss You, Danger… Pylypchuk’s raggedy poodle sulks in the discontents of retirement, the kicked dog epitome of loneliness and obsolescence.
