June 26 2014 Exhibition: “METAGLYPHIC”
The exhibition will be open to the public from June 26–Aug 17, 2014, with an opening reception on Thursday, June 26, 7:00–9:00 pm.
From the gallery's press release about the exhibition:
Scrap-art master Coraggio creates symbolic structures in steel and other debris, where welded elements (tools, utensils and other welded artifacts) also form a personal language and function as compelling visual tropes within the larger forms; sometimes these symbols are obvious, such as the hammer in the “Soviet chair” sculpture, and other times more obliquely evocative as in the welded screens with concentric loops that echo [Ken] Hiratsuka’s spirals and megalithic rock art.
