Join them for the opening reception for Literary Illusion, a solo show for Argentinian sculptor, Pancho Luna. Pancho Luna remembers his grandmother's library as an eclectic and rather magical place. It contained volumes of volumes in several different languages, which didn't matter all that much since he started exploring them long before he could read anyway. It turns out there's more than one way to read a book, though, and Luna became enamored of them all -- as pure color, shape, smell, texture, typeface; as repositories of photographs, illustrations, reproductions; and ultimately as sites of experience and triggers of memory -- in short, as both symbols and objects. And it is precisely this multifaceted power to impart knowledge by means other than words on pages which Luna explores in his luminous, alluring, and deceptively simple sculptural works in which recreations of curated bookshelves are rendered in transparent Lucite to powerful, nuanced effect.
