"Warpigs (Piggy Bank Series)" 2024

I started this piece prior to the 2022 invasion of Ukraine by Russia. The piece speaks to the amount of money,time and human lives devoted to making and responding to aggression. We should be able to find another way to resolve our differences and keep the money we spend on taxes and not pay those that profit on the manufacture of arms.

Kyle Fokken

I am a mixed media sculptor who combines diverse imagery into hybrid sculptures that explore cultural contexts between people.

I use vintage toy and ‘folk art’ aesthetics to explore the passing down of cultural values between generations. I make artwork that tantalizes the eye and invites the audience to linger and look deeper at the work and reflect on what we believe about ourselves.
