August 28 - October 7, 1990
Donald Lipski: Poetic Sculpture presents over fifty works created by Donald Lipski between 1978 and 1990. Lipski creates sculpture out of nearly anything—debris found in the street, industrial salvage, military surplus, flea market castaways—any of these materials are candidates for inclusion in the work of this inventive artist. Putting together such unlikely objects as a missile nose cone and a camera bellows, or a Christmas tree and an aluminum walker, this one-time magician and escape artist practices another kind of magic: that of giving special meaning to objects through unexpected combinations. Our own imaginations are set in motion in response to Lipski’s strange accumulations, which range from the horrific, to the melancholy, to the hilarious.
