Its a beautiful, sunny, Sunday afternoon here in the city. Our new show " Young Mind, Old Soul" by Word To Mother, is coming together magnificently . It's one thing to see the images online but it's a whole new world when you can see all the details up close. Small logs, rusted keys, and bits of wood are key elements in creating his stupendously, phenomenal work. I sneaked a couple of shots during the install...check it out.
Back side of "Young Mind..."
WTM was his laying out his work along the walls when he lifted up one the title pieces and spun it around. Turns out his work has secrets; the backs of the works are no overlooked detail thats for sure. Some have drawings he did from years ago while others give hints into their rightful usage. Killer, simply, Killer.
Thinking the salvaged items used are simply random scraps? Each "scrap" holds certain importance to the artist. He remembers exactly how he came upon each piece of rusted tin, edwardian baseboard and sliver of antique wallpaper .
Here's an itty-bitty sneak peak into what's coming...cheers! We're heading out to Zeitgeist!
