Exhibition Description

For his first New York City one-person show, the artist created an environmental installation of various fabrics. Gauzy, transparent walls divided enclosed, semi-enclosed, and tent-like spaces. Plastic was arranged on the floor. Black and white vinyl curtains bordered a long corridor of white nylon. Bolts of rubberized nylon were draped from ropes and pipes. Various sections of camouflage-patterned cloth, held together with stitches, grommets, rope, and tape reinforcements covered one long wall. Mock provided the viewer with a multitude of colors and textures.
