Cal, from Nebraska, is making his solo debut in NYC. His painted wood scupltures began last year with his series, 40 Rings. He mixes global events with personal memories and family history. It is an interesting approach because this is really how we experience global events. People remember significant pieces of global history by connecting them to what they were doing when the event occurred.
A wonderful idea and, from what I have seen, charming work. See more of his work at santiagocal.com.
