Found Architecture in Queens

April 3, 2009

When we were housemates in the Bay Area in the in the ‘nineties, Tyrome Tripoli made ornamental sculpture from rough materials and a heavy trace of the hand. Now he constructs large composite pieces from cast-offs, and while he is not the only artist to do so, his tight color and material palette make for engaging conceptual assemblage.

“Found Architecture” is a show comprising “models of futuristic buildings made from banal (but beautiful) objects of the past.” At M55 Art, 44-02 23rd Street
Long Island City, Queens.

Reception is Saturday April 4, 5-8 p.m.
