Our friends over at Toy Qube have been quietly working on a project that will bring to life a painting by Josh Keyes (interviewed). We finally got the go ahead to share some detailed images with you. Entitled Lifted II, this meticulously sculpted piece is a three dimensional creation based on the painting we recently showed you from his last exhibition at Roq La Rue. This artwork critiques the mistreatment of circus animals and also beautifully depicts Keyes’signature “transparent cubed” water which hints at a future dominated by coastal flooding.

This great figure will release October 8th on Toy Qube’s website for $265. Other details of the sculpture include size: 6″ H (152mm) x 4” W (102mm) x 4” D (102mm) and edition size: 350, each with signed & numbered certificate of authenticity.
