Alex Trimino: Luminous
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 todayâ€™s reality.
