Wall Works a Solo Art Exhibition
May 14 @ 11:00 am - June 8 @ 6:00 amfree
Wall Works is a solo show of new artworks by FRANC PALAIA, Rome Prise winning painter/photographer/sculptor/muralist. The show will include over a dozen life-sized simulations of urban walls with street art, graffiti, murals, sgraffito, found objects and mixed media materials.
They include imagery from Italy, Cuba, France, North Korea and the US with a focus of Rome and Naples. As you enter the second floor gallery, the viewer is confronted with a quasi contemporary archaeological site with what appears to be fragments and chunks of urban architecture ripped directly from cityscapes from around the world. Palaia travels extensively and records wall imagery, and re-arranges them into street like compositions and presents them in a way that makes them look quite convincingly real. A full color catalog of the works in the show is available in the gallery.
