THROUGH JUNE 9
At Cheryl Hazan Gallery: “Amsterdam artist Diederick Kraaijeveld exhibits a selection of sculptural works; three Chuck Taylor All Stars, a Coke Can and a Money Roll. Diederick builds constructions of classic pop icons out of vintage reclaimed painted wood. He uses the old painted wooden planks scavenged from demolition and construction sites from the Netherlands and other countries to piece together his hand crafted photorealistic wall reliefs.”
“FB Gallery is pleased to present Illuminati, featuring the official debut of the latest Lightbodies by contemporary artist Kilu. Kilu’s artistic practice incorporates light as both the source material and focus of his work. He explores the intangible medium by transforming and combining objects into sculptures, which manipulate, capture and absorb the intrinsic values of light.”
