On Friday, September 12th, 2014 , Artist Abraham Ferraro will unveil his 100+ piece installation in his 1st solo exhibition outside of NY in Washington PA.
Over the past 3 1/2 years, Mr. Ferraro has been creating structurally engineered sculptures out of reclaimed cardboard and mailing them via the USPS to their destinations. The works have become increasingly colorful with the incorporation of packing labels…and this year’s work is bursting at the seams with newly found colors!
His work has been featured in several recent publications and blogs: Gambling the Isle (Colorado), Contemporary Performance Almanac 2013 (NYC), and 365 Artists / 365 Days (Wisconsin).
Ferraro spends countless hours searching the internet for new packing labels to fill out his palette of bright and florescent colors. In sticking with Pop Art’s appropriation scheme… “I love it when I find a new design or color that’s being used by shipping companies…it speaks volumes about our culture…especially when it’s a quirky sticker!”
The exhibition will feature Abraham's installation, Directions, composed of more than 100 pieces spanning the 35' x 55' gallery and many recent floor and wall sculptures.
