DESCRIPTION

NY Studio Gallery is pleased to present TRASH, a group show highlighting artists whose work is inspired by trash, garbage, refuse, waste and debris.  Often considered aesthetically challenging if not abhorrently ugly, these products of human consumption are unavoidable elements of modern living.   These five artists alter our negative reaction to this phenomenon by interpreting waste afresh, creating beautiful or insightful images, objects, installations and performances and giving form to the old adage: “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
