Did I time travel back to the D? This work felt very Detroit-like (or at least circa early-mid 00's) - you know the found-object-dirty-resin-beautiful-ugly type. Mix a little Hocking/Snider/Newton/Rousseaux, just to name a few. I have a hard time digesting and accurately, without personal judgement, assessing this style of art since leaving. It's like how I also can't compute the ghetto here - it's got palm trees, no missing houses, malls, supermarkets...?!?
Nice gallery space...can I live in the vestibule containing the fountain?
