    About The Work

    Heavy Dog Kiss is a first edition multiple commissioned exclusively by the Whitney Museum of American Art. The dog and the mask are made of cast resin, and each multiple contains a unique set of found objects inside the mask. Famous for his Conceptual work, his body art, and his earthworks, Dennis Oppenheim turned to smaller sculpture toward the end of his career. Casts of animals, both whole and body parts, as well as the subject of kissing, show up elsewhere in Oppenheim's œ“uvre.
