Ai Bo Gallery (Purchase, New York) showed work by John Petrey and Mattia Novello at Context Miami 2016.
Petrey, from Tennessee, creates these dresses out of a variety of materials. Kalena is Tiffany green patina copper skirt and bodice while Pamela is a red and black painted aluminum skirt and embossed aluminum bodice. The artist doesn't limit himself to these sorts of materials. He has used bottle caps and asphalt shingles in his work as well.
Novello is an Italian artist who works in photography, sculpture and installation art. The piece below, Meditation Man, is polyurethene, canvas, acrylics and plumage. There is something of the macabre about meditation by a black clad figure. The form is less than distinct beneath the robe which adds to the mystery.
