Borinquen Gallo: Like a Jungle Orchid for a Lovestruck Bee at Burning in Water.
Bronx-based Puerto Rican-Italian artist Borinquen Gallo painstakingly weaves red and yellow caution tape, construction tarps, garbage bags, and other unconventional materials into richly textured sculptures and installations. It’s a process that can take weeks or even months.
Borinquen is also participating in Surface 5 at Arena, a group show curated by Renee Riccardo hosted at Brooklyn Dermatology, 440 Atlantic Ave.
