Corduroy Boutique and Gallery will be showing Silas Finch's body of work, Vessel this coming Friday and through out the month of August. I've clipped a bit of the press release for you to read so you get some background on the above piece (and detail below), Yesterdays Girl. Such a gorgeous piece. And per chance you want to take advantage of Silas' super generous offer online. Read on to find out more:
Finch finds inspiration where most people would not consider looking for it: in junk yards, vacant lots, and alleys. He seeks to encounter what most people try to avoid, collecting what has been lost, forgotten, broken, ignored, and rejected. “Yesterdays Girl,” featured on the shows promotional poster (attached), was made mostly created from piano parts. The sails, made from music sheets, represent a conversation between a dangerous man and a suspecting woman. They are connected by the movement of the rigging, creating a speechless conversation showcasing the many underlying details within Finch’s intricate work rewritten by every new admirer. Viewing his sculptures, we are reminded of the multiple possibilities of life and of the principles of rearrangement and reorganization that keep our perspectives fresh and everchanging.
Along side the amazingly detailed sculptures that will fill the gallery and window space, Finch has graciously decided to raffle one sculpture from the exhibit to provide an opportunity to those who may not be able to afford a piece at full price. Tickets for the raffle will be available to purchase online and in the gallery for $5 beginning on opening night.
At the end of the exhibit a very lucky winner will be announced. In addition to a raffle, Finch is donating 10% of all sales to the Make A Wish Foundation of Portland, Maine.
