NEW YORK—Contemporary artists commonly work in photography or create conceptual and abstract sculptures. Andrew Levitas has combined the mediums and patented and trademarked his multidisciplinary approach, referring to the mashup as “Metalwork Photography.” The process involves producing photographs on transparencies that are melted onto hand-etched metal surfaces. Arts Observer viewed Levitas’s work yesterday at Phillips de Pury on Park Avenue. The exhibition of four new works demonstrated that the appeal of Levitas’s creations is drawn from both the subject of his photographs and the shape and patina of the metal surfaces.
“Metalwork Photography: Sculptures” was on view at Phillips de Pury from July 11 to July 30, 2012.
