From my review of Darren Foote at Judi Rotenberg Gallery:
Darren Foote of South Boston (the fiancé of Rotenberg director Kristen Dodge) fashions oak and poplar into trompe-l'oeil mutant furniture. A chair has crumpled. Wooden "rays" from a table lamp bend the top of a table. A pair of chairs standing next to each other seem to have been wounded on their abutting sides by some mysterious menace that's melted the seats and spindles down to jagged edges. His standout sculpture is “Bulb.” A bare lightbulb dangling from the ceiling appears to have been shattered and the shards scattered across the floor.Read the rest here.
Darren Foote, Judi Rotenberg Gallery, 130 Newbury St., Boston, Feb. 5 to March 1, 2009.
