Leslie Wilcox: Canniballistic
Presented by Boston Sculptors Gallery at Boston Sculptors Gallery
October 9 - November 8, 2009
Boston, MA: Leslie Wilcox’s exhibition of new work, titled Canniballistic, will open at Boston Sculptors Gallery on Friday, October 9 and continue through Sunday, November 8, 2009. In addition to regular gallery hours, the exhibition will be open for an artist reception on Saturday, October 17, 2 – 5 PM and a First Friday reception on November 7, 5 – 8 PM. Both are free and open to the public. Canniballistic carries dual connotations in the hands of Leslie Wilcox. While utilizing a sculptor’s prerogative to mutate a previous sculptures’ materials onto new work, she simultaneously realigns the scale, bulk and opacity of each piece with the sole purpose of locating its essence from within. Each of these unseen and incomplete works becomes drastically transformed in the process. And rather than building from scratch or removing the unnecessary bits, she re-works each piece until she finds the works’ only and best possible configuration; its’ guts or soul or essence. Gallery Hours: Wed through Sun, 12 - 6PM. Images of her work can be seen at www.barbarakrakowgallery.com, www.foresthillstrust.org, www.bostonsculptors.com, www.lesliewilcox.com, and www.nehomemag.com virtual issue page 78-84, (current sept/oct 09 issue of New England Home Magazine).
