John Bisbee: Material ObsessionDecember 17, 2016 - March 26, 2017
John Bisbee has spent nearly 30 years using nails as his sole medium to create geometric sculptures, organic installations, and unwieldy objects from thousands of nails that are hammered, bent, welded, or fastened together in a seemingly limitless procession of forms. His mantra: “Only nails, always different.” John Bisbee: Material Obsession will be a site-specific installation during which John will use the space as inspiration for creating an immersive environment.
*John Bisbee: Material Obsession is sponsored by the Caroline R. Graboys Fund.
