Leonardo Drew

Vigo Gallery
18 June – 26 July 2013

VIGO is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of wall-based sculptures by Brooklyn based artist Leonardo Drew.

Drew is known for reflective abstract sculptural installations most often based on exploration of a grid or framework, which incorporate created, manipulated and found materials constructed from fabricated wood, tree branches, roots, paper, raw cotton, rust, found objects and mud. He re-examines and re-invents these objects and materials, which are often loaded with multiple African American historical, cultural and social connotations. The resulting reflective work engages with the cyclical and transient nature of life and the passing of time.
