For the month of July, Russo Lee Gallery is pleased to present You Are Living In A Poem by James Allen. Known for his book excavations, the artist believes that a poem “unfurls in unexpected waves, like a book.” Many of his book excavations reveal a new combination of words and are poems in their own right. This exhibition features a free-standing sculpture made of vintage Horizon magazines, crowned with what looks like a lampshade, created from major imagery in art history. His book excavations can be found in Public collections at UCLA, Johns Hopkins University, Ringling College of Art and Design, University of Puget Sound, University of Colorado Boulder, Baylor University, and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. He's also exhibited across the country in New York, Seattle, Chicago, Milwaukee, Portland, Miami, and San Francisco.
