ANDISHEH AVINI: Screw, Spread, Slip, Suck, Stab, Fall, Cross and Writhe Opening Reception
October 16, 6 - 8:00 pm
Half Gallery
208 Forsyth, New York, NY

Combining Frank Stella's pattern pieces from the 1960s and an old traditional craft called marquetry, Andisheh Avini creates his latest series of arresting abstractions. The tile style here was initially used as accenting in pre-Islamic architecture, but now mostly for trinkets and souvenirs. Fabricated in Iran and contrasted by silkscreens of the American hostage crisis, they reveal the irreconcilable tensions between Avini's homeland and adopted country.
