gord peteran-electric_chair

Gord Peteran is an artist known for what he calls furnitural sculpture, a distinct line between furniture design and sculpture. “He is a kind of philosopher of furniture with a weakness for visual-verbal puns,” said the New York Times, “Viewed against the background of traditional craftsmanship his works may be surprising, but in the context of contemporary art they are tame.” Gord Peteran released a book titled, “Furniture Meets its Maker” which was also the title of his exhibition touring museums around North America all year, 2009.
