Talley Dunn Gallery presents Leonardo Drew
Leonardo Drew was born in Tallahassee, Florida in 1961, and grew up in a public housing project in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Although often mistaken for accumulations of found objects, his sculptures are instead made of “brand new stuff,” materials such as wood, rusted iron, cotton, paper and mud, that he intentionally subjects to processes of weathering, burning, oxidization, and decay. Whether jutting from a wall or traversing rooms as freestanding installations, his pieces challenge the architecture of the space in which they’re shown.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 16.
