RUINATIONS

Leslie Fry

Tom Nakashima

Jan. 4 - Feb. 8, 2008

 

Gallery I
Tom Nakashima : Berryville Tree Piles and Structures 

Japanese-American artist Tom Nakashima created a series of small to monumental size images (the widest is 28 ft.) of piles of trees cut down by developers, dilapidated buildings and abandoned factories. Although they appear to be highly realistic paintings from a few yards away, they’re actually collages of tiny pieces of paper torn from magazines and newspapers.

Gallery II
Leslie Fry: 99 1/2 Won't Do

Ancient cultures and the basic needs of human beings that created civilizations and were responsible for the development of religious art provide the inspirations for Leslie Fry’s “ruined” artifacts. Her invented objects are arranged as site-specific installations.
