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.

Jun. 9 – Aug. 19, 2012
Opening Reception: Fri., Jun. 8, 6 - 9 pm

The results are whimsical, humorous, and at times unsettling works of art.
