Allouche Gallery will open its doors to Nick Georgiou: Codex Chroma, a vibrant new collection of paper wall reliefs, exploring the unique life cycle of books as objects of art.
“As the triple digit heat approaches the Sonoran desert, a burst of color illuminates what is usually a monochromatic landscape, transforming it into a mosaic of hues. The color combinations are infinite as are the radical shapes that push through the earth. One strange cactus after another brings forth blooms that are alien and unimaginable. The observer stands transfixed and mesmerized by the odd beauty; it’s sensory overload but in a way that entices a closer look.” ~ Nick Georgiou.
The collection is comprised of discarded books that are cut, painted and meticulously positioned in works that range from figurative to abstract, and still life to portraiture.
Nick Georgiou: Codex Chroma will open on May 16 with Opening Reception from 6-9pm. Allouche Gallery is located at 82 Gansevoort Street, NYC.
