Heavy Heads Series.

In the Heavy Heads series Bonfanti manipulates molds of toy doll heads, which he then casts in concrete. The standard heads represent a universal model for the urban dweller, despite race or class, with the distortion referring to his or hers perception of daily pressures and stress. The bodies are usually painted, sculpted and assembled with materials found by rummaging discarded items around his local neighborhood in Toronto. The somewhat disjointed bodies act as awkward support to the weighty head, giving each piece an individuality. Characters on cell phones, decompressing at the bar or on route to work with a coffee in hand, these scenes capture the humor and angst of the inner psyche.
