Found Architecture in QueensApril 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.
