Painter, sculptor, and performance artist Scoli Acosta will present new work at the Armory Center for the Arts, in an exhibition entitled Rippling: An Earnest Moire Effect. The exhibition opens on Sunday, March 27 and runs through June 5. A reception, free and open to the public, will take place on Saturday March 26 from 7-9pm. The Armory is located at 145 North Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, California.
Scoli Acosta exhibits a DIY aesthetic and a fervor for salvaged objects and thrift store finds that comes from a deep reverence for the handmade in a world dominated by manufactured consumer goods. While at times standing on their own as unique objects, and at others assembled into installations and performance props, Acosta’s objects are combined and then recombined to create eccentric tales, familiar and foreign recollections and dreamlike visions of the future.
