Amilcar De Castro

Kornblee Gallery

Amilcar De Castro, at Kornblee, works with large, primary forms, sometimes of aluminum, sometimes of stainless steel. Slender rings support circles and squares up to five feet across. As the elements are rearrangeable, a single piece can have many different faces. De Castro seems interested in a blend of improvisation and the perfect, fixed image for which I find I have little sympathy.
