Alex Trimino: Luminous

Sept. 8 – Oct. 21, 2012
Opening Reception: Fri., Sept. 7, 6 – 9 pm Facebook

This exhibition by Miami-based artist Alex Trimino consists of illuminated totem poles that are covered in crochet, knitting, and found objects. In employing such items, Trimino reveals similarities between modern, hi-tech materials (micro-controlled neon lights) and colloquial, lo-tech crafts (crochet, knitting, and weavings.) The works create equilibrium between traditions, technologies, and generations. Old methods and new technologies commingle in ways that explore our connection to today’s reality.
