Troy Coulterman’s resin sculptures evoke the vibrant colors and over-the-top expressions of animations and graphic novels. His illustrative style is somewhat unexpected to experience in three-dimensions. The Canadian artist (who was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 27) recently debuted an exhibition in his hometown, Regina, Saskatchewan, at the MacKenzie Art Gallery. Titled “Digital Handshake,” the show takes inspiration from the abstract ways we communicate online. In the candy-colored sculptures, figures appear to dissolve into pixel-like blocks. In the show’s centerpiece, a man and a woman are separated by an abstract mass — perhaps a metaphor for the barrier we put between ourselves and the world as we increasingly opt for digital experiences over physical ones.
