The Wafering Wayfinding Swirl to Swell - Acrylic Paint, Glue, Foam 72" x 36" x 3"
Joey Enos is an Oakland sculptor who attended The Art Institute of Chicago and received his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2005. In 2014 he received his MFA degree at the University of California, Berkeley.
"Enos makes his sculptures with simple materials — carved foam and layers of paint — to resemble column-like combinations of weathered planks, giant spikes, riveted sheets of metal and discarded tires. His art has an over-exaggerated quality, like the Clapboard architecture seen in Looney Tunes cartoons from the Golden age of animation."

The documentary reveals an important part of the Bay Area arts dating back to the 1960's. Joey was influenced by the magic and mystery of this area in Emeryville while he was growing up. Many have wondered if this area precluded the now popular Burning Man.
