Pocket Utopia, 191 Henry Street between Clinton and Jefferson Streets in New York City, presents Paul D'Agostino: Twilit Ensembles, March 3 - April 21, 2013, with an opening reception set for Sunday, March 3, 6pm - 8pm.
Twilit Ensembles is a solo exhibition of new paintings, drawings, sculptures and collages by Paul D'Agostino. Creating sets within series, stories across drawings, sculptures out of characters, and settings from paintings, the poet and artist Paul D'Agostino employs narrative relationships within and throughout his works that are sometimes in opposition to each other, sometimes complementary.
An artist's book has been published for the occasion. Floor Translations, produced in collaboration with C. G. Boerner, is a graphic, humorous, tragicomic kind of picture book, a mysterious theater in which D'Agostino spins curious tales like a master manipulator of marionettes.
Pocket Utopia is located at 191 Henry Street between Clinton and Jefferson Streets in New York City. Hours are Wednesday-Sunday, 11am-6pm. For further information, visit www.pocketutopia.com.
