> DESCRIPTION

Green's frequently incendiary sculptural statements are as absorbing as they are alarming. His previous effigies of bombs evoke contemporary terrorism and have had a way of making a variety of authorities uncomfortable, especially in our post-9/11 world. For the operatic Through the Night Softly, the artist takes aim at the mechanics of political leadership and aesthetic interrogation. His collection of 2,552 metal tire spikes, each hand-crafted and scattered in an almost topographical mass, resembles a child's game of jacks--albeit a functionally lethal one, along with its presence as an ominous, impenetrable barrier that dares one to cross.  Through the Night Softly was recently shown at Regina Rex, an artist run space in Ridgewood, Queens.
