    The Sculpture of Al Farrow
    October 11, 2015 — January 03, 2016

Using guns and ammunition, Al Farrow creates sculptures of reliquaries, cathedrals, synagogues, mosques, mausoleums, and other devotional objects.

Using guns and ammunition, Al Farrow creates sculptures of reliquaries, cathedrals, synagogues, mosques, mausoleums, and other devotional objects. The surprising inventiveness and the technical tour-de-force of his craftsmanship are highlighted in this exhibition of works drawn from private and public collections. In these the artist denigrates no one belief, being mindful, discriminating, and probing of all. His fanciful combinations of the elements of religious architecture are exactingly realized and perfectly scaled. Each work gives new meaning to its materials. Gun barrel towers and domes built of bullets not only compel the viewer to consider the present but also the history of conflict. The artist’s material choices may be jarring, but they also provoke awe and inspire meditation.
