Wood Meets Paper Opens in Madrid

On Wednesday, 18th June, 2008 our Exhibition, Wood Meets Paper, opened at the Centro Cultural Villa de in Móstoles, outside of Madrid. The installation was part of Boris Curatolo’s sculpture exhibition, Time and Materials. It was a relaxed evening meeting new friends and family members – even two Londoners – Brett and Clayton - dropped in for the opening - they had seen the original exhibition at the Pearl Street Gallery in Brooklyn.
Putting together Wood Meets Paper took three days - Boris had made the wooden circles in advance of my arrival - and this allowed some time for Boris to make a new wooden sculptural piece.
The gallery was a challenge with the open space and many columns but the pieces flowed around the columns and allowed the sculptural pieces to breathe. This was a challenging experience and we now look forward to a new kind of installation in Seoul, Korea in 2009.

A few words of welcome…

The columns were OK to tether a small blue truck…

We have a week to work in the studio putting the pieces together and then four days to install. Will keep you posted with some images as the installation unfolds. Cheers, Mary
