Opens September 6 with reception for the artist from 6-8 pm. Show remains on view through September 27.
Armand Rusillon’s oeuvre mixes a dry, gothic sensibility with a fondness for elemental materials and shapes. Working primarily in wood and stone, he uses labor-intensive processes to cultivate unique textures: the clean, black-charred lines of a pollarded tree limb, a rusty tear seeping from the metal-rimmed eye of a stone disc. There’s a monumentality to Rusillon’s works that belies their size, an unmistakable aura of history, endurance and, above all, power. This is Rusillon’s first solo show at One Mile Gallery.
