The Nesto Gallery at Milton hosted an opening reception on Tuesday, September 16, to launch its first exhibit of the year,Paradigm tipping (and other questionable activities) by Peter Evonuk.
Peter Evonuk’s pieces slide on a slippery edge between sculpture, physics and engineering that redefines the ordinary object found in everyday materials, tools and instruments. By extolling the virtues of common objects, Mr. Evonuk makes us explore the deeper meaning of their existence. The concept of his show is based on the statement: “You can learn a lot about an idea by smashing it to pieces with a blunt instrument. You can learn even more by putting it back together with crazy glue and duct tape.”
Peter Evonuk received his M.F.A. at Cranbrook Art Academy and now lives in the Boston area where he is an adjunct instructor of sculpture and metalsmithing at Massachusetts College of Art.
Paradigm tipping will be at the Nesto Gallery until October 14. The Nesto Gallery—located on the first floor of the old Science Building—is open Monday–Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, please contact Anne Neely at 617-898-2335.
