This two-part exhibition highlights playfully dynamic works by New York-based artist Don Porcaro. Studio X will feature Porcaro’s Cabinet of Nomads, 156 colorful figures layered in rows of graduated shelves, along with other larger sculptures from his “Sentinel” and “Childhood’s End” series. In the Sculpture Park, a group of recent works from Porcaro’s “Talisman” series is on view through November 8. These figures of layered stone and marble with brass fittings appear at once witty and animated, as well as elegant and totemic.
Don Porcaro is a New York-based sculptor whose work explores the nature of human interaction with the physical world through architecture and man-made objects like tools and toys. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and has been reviewed in The New York Times, Sculpture Magazine, Art in America, Artnews, BOMB and Newsday, among others. He has been a professor of Fine Arts at Parsons School of Design since 1986. Porcaro received his MFA in Sculpture from Columbia University.
