The Story of “Link”: Artist George of San Antonio exhibits his sculpture in Miami Beach. There, he pays a visit to the studio of local artist David. Then, en route to a bar, David and George run into local artist Adriana on the street. Artist Adriana already knows David, has heard of George, and is thirsty, so Adriana joins artists George and David and they spend the night discussing art, life and metal fabrication techniques.
These are the simple beginnings of the show “Link,” opening at HCG Gallery October 23rd. But there are more substantial links between artists Adriana Carvalho, David Zalben and George Schroeder. The three all work in metal, pairing the medium’s indestructibility with more fleeting elements of love, lyricism and lightheartedness. To an artist working in metal, the material is both irresistible and resisting, a medium born of fire and violence. Artists A, D and G will tell you: metal is forever. Life, not quite.
