The Shifting Dream, The Steel Sculpture of Robert Spinazzola at Windows Gallery December 3-9, 2010


Windows Gallery 37 Orchard St., New York, NY 10002
Windows Gallery is proud to announce it's first solo sculpture exhibition of the season with the work of mid-career artist, Robert Spinazzola's exhibition, The Shifting Dream, one artist's 20 year exploration of the Middle Class's social and economic position. Premiering in this exhibit, SAUVAGE LD. 2010, (Detroit Entre Deux Lacs), and SAUVAGE B.6 2010, (Senufo), Mr. Spinazzola explores the social and economic minefield of the industrial Midwest that has recently made national headlines in the crushing economic juggernaut of recession and home foreclosures. SAUVAGE LD. 2010 is a 84”' tall by 60” wide welded assemblage of machine parts that turn and rotate housed between two water tanks and piping representing Michigan lakes Erie and Huron. SAUVAGE B.6 carries on the housing crisis theme with abstract house figures welded to the organic wings of an African influenced Senufo style bird. SAUVAGE 1990, (Detroit, Ça Va), with its running skeletal horse atop the machine base will also be displayed. This was the first piece in the twenty year journey of Robert Spinazzola's commentary on the sliding economic state of his hometown, Detroit, MI. SAUVAGE 1990 was selected by Ms. Eliza Rathbone, curator for the Philips Collection, for the prestigious Albert Jacobson Memorial Award in 1992.
In the separate entry section of Windows Gallery, Mr. Spinazzola will display several welded steel wall hangings exhibiting his interest in Eastern calligraphic symbols like Change and Peace. 
All of Robert Spinazzola's work is constructed from 100% recycled metal and has been a key element of his 35-year career.
