DESCRIPTION

In the West Wing, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents a small selection of new assemblages by Walter Hamady. A legendary book designer and publisher, Hamady has run his own Perishable Press since 1964. As a collage and assemblage artist, he's been showing since even earlier, and his new box-works extend the mode he's been exploring for the last 25 years, utilizing wooden containers retrofitted with impeccable ephemera into uncanny, surrealistinformed confabulations.
