In To The Woods

When you walk in to Leonardo Drew’s large scale exhibition in Chelsea, it takes a while for your brain to compute the enormity of the site specific installation.  The behemoth charred wood sculpture that greets you when you enter, snakes its way through the vast gallery all the way to the back room.  Juxtaposed on the walls are glorious sculptures made of clean, carefully put together wood, a mighty contrast to the central sculpture.

Based in Brooklyn, New York, Leonardo Drew bases his abstract sculptures on historical evidence, seeing them as emotionally charged reflections on the cyclical nature of existence.
