Made with the same techniques used for manufacturing surfboards, and produced at the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, Alex Israel’s sculptural self-portraits, through the very process of their production, reflect on the context of Los Angeles, the culture of hedonism and the cult of personality from which they spring. This compilation of photographs and renderings of Israel’s sculptures across time and locations underscores the humor and universality of his project.
