Architect and artist Miles Gertler’s moody black-and-white prints are made up of long horizontal sections that resemble levels from some lost, slightly dystopian Super Mario game. Each floor is densely layered – with pipes, ladders, volcanoes and even flamingos thrown into the mix. These illustrated environments are joined by playful resins castings of various “instant heirlooms.” Crowns in splashy pastels and a variety of other intriguing forms are laid out like freshly excavated finds being catalogued by archaeologists.
The opening reception takes place May 17 from 6-8 pm.
