NYU Steinhardt’s Rosenberg Gallery announces Big Head a solo exhibition of new work by David J. Merritt, MFA Candidate, 2011.

Monuments to a fallen civilization that did not exist. Totems transported from a future that may yet come to pass. The toil of the devout appeasing gods that will never respond. Big Head, is an installation of monolithic heads and objects created from a variety of materials such as; fired and unfired clay, plasticine, plaster, tape, foam and assemblage elements.
