DESCRIPTION

 

Artist Liz Burow explores the abstract textures and patterns of urban landscapes using soft, tactile 

materials such as felt, topographic maps, recycled fabrics and paper. These three dimensional, 

abstracted textile works engage an interplay between utilitarian and recreation, softscape and 

hardscape, line and form, scale and context.  

 

Angelo Monaco’s works on paper depart from the idea of Agit Prop – a visual strategy using 

propaganda to agitate the senses.  Instead of political slogans, bright colors or superhuman figures to 

manufacture a consensus, he uses poetic fragments, magazine pages, blocks of black, and half- 

shaped human figures to identify in each of us an individual will. Like the poetic fragments of Sappho, 

they are broken mirrors that begin and end with silence. An epic story made from the artifacts of a lost 

world.
