American artist James Grashow’s extraordinary corrugated board sculptures, along with his intricate woodcut prints, are to be featured in Corrugated World: The Art of James Grashow, a solo show at the Flinn Gallery.
Grashow, who earned both BFA and MFA degrees from Pratt Institute in New York City and has lived in Connecticut for 40 years, has exhibited widely at museums and galleries, including the DeCordova Sculpture Park & Museum, MassMOCA, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum and New Britain Museum of American Art.
Art dealer Allan Stone began representing Grashow in 1965, and Stone’s daughter, filmmaker Olympia Stone, made Grashow the subject of her documentary film, The Cardboard Bernini (2012). The film documents the creation, and calculated destruction, of Grashow’s largest project, a cardboard replica of Bernini’s great fountain in Rome. The documentary, which provides viewers with extraordinary insight into Grashow’s hopes, fears, inspiration and creative process.
Artist James Grashow will be present for the Art Lounge at the Gallery, the film and Q&A afterwards.
