Energy Erupting (LAST CHANCE)

Charles Hecht’s Creation series is on display at YES! Gallery through the weekend, curated by Lesley Doukhowetzky. The artist uses discarded material like I-Bars, mesh, and other found objects to create sculptures imbued with movement, heated and forced out of the rigidity of their material identity. He uses molten glass molded in China and finished in his studio in Beijing for the fluid, colorful slug-shapes. Like waves of a Japanese lithograph at odds with a trash-riddled sea shore, Hecht’s work is both aesthetically beautiful and tense.
