DESCRIPTION

MICHAEL MUT GALLERY PRESENTS

Appropriated Objects

A GROUP SHOW BY TYROME TRIPOLI & RICHARD LUND

New York, New York - December 16 - January 15, 2011

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 16, 6:00 - 9:00 PM

Michael Mut Gallery reveals the secret to creating a work of art is all in the assemblage.

Appropriated Objects brings together two riveting New York artists who assemble stunning works of art

using materials with unique origins.

Tyrome Tripoli and Richard Lund bring together various materials such as metal, plastic and wood

creating a harmony as natural as a piano’s ebony and ivory. Just as Yin and Yang, Appropriated Objects

unites two artists who fashion their creations using new materials or found objects.

Tyrome Tripoli exhibits his Found Surface Series showing his ability to create new art while leaving the

found objects “as is”. The materials become transformed as the referential information of the object’s

past life is obscured. Tripoli’s Constructions are a series of disparate elements that are assembled into

unexpected juxtapositions. The objects are connected with the utmost precision, fastened together with

threaded rod, washers, and bolts. Tripoli shares, “My intention is to highlight the discreet beauty found

in the commonly overlooked.”

Richard Lund is the perfect Yin to Tyrome Tripoli’s Yang. Lund fashions new materials to create his art.

Repetition is his theme and motivation as one can easily see in the circular leitmotif throughout Lund’s work.
