Alexander Hoda works in the grand tradition of the grotesque. His sculpture is a sort of black comedy, fighting the pains of violence and civil unrest with a dark humor. Hoda's goal is confrontation, achieved in pushing his shapes to the extreme and forcing a battle of the senses.

Hoda's latest sculptures are on view tonight at Metro Gallery, where they will remain on view through December 24, 2011.
