Scott Teplin: CRASH
December 3 - January 2, 2012
301 East 11 Street, Houston, TX 77008
New York artist Scott Teplin collages found photographs of horrifying crash scenes and then redraws these compositions over and over until the hard metal lines transform into softer shapes that more closely resemble organic objects. CRASH is Teplin’s second appearance in Houston: in 2003, curator Diane Barber commissioned him to create Lubricious, a site-specific installation presented at DiverseWorks.
