Locust Projects is pleased to announce Wound, Bound, Tied and Knotted, an exhibition of new work by Jacin Giordano. Inspired by the organic dimensionality of the tree branches that form his stretchers, Giordano wraps and weaves webs of multicolored yarn to create his painting surface. Coated with layers of acrylic paint and dye, the paintings extend to the wall of the Project Room, giving the impression of a bas-relief sculpture. Giordano’s work is inspired by sources ranging from process-based painting, folk and self-taught fiber arts, and natural history. This will be the artist’s first installation project incorporating painting and sculpture into the
architecture of a space.
