The Art of Polly Becker
Mar 18—May 17 2014
Richard C. von Hess Illustration Gallery
Becker gathers together what others might discard because of their broken joints, chipping paint or worn sheen. She uses a fascinating, ever-growing collection of scrap materials to make totally new, beautiful objects. It is this aspect of her work that serves as a reminder that not everything needs to be thrown out, and it is often the imperfections, chips, breaks and scrapes that give them their character. Her quietly arresting assemblages have illustrated articles in Rolling Stone, Harper’s, The New York Times and many others.
