STANTON HUNTER: Accumulations
materials from the industrial area surrounding the gallery, the artist has
created self-described shard towers and collections utilizing debris specific
to the neighborhood. Asphalt, glass and metal are some of the found resources

modern ruins while the collections – compound objects pieced together
– synthesize into enigmatic forms, asserting their own character.
