Pentatray by Boris Bally


Signage is one of Boris Bally's medium of choice not only because of the recycling message, but also its appeal to him as an extreme variation on the age-old tradition of enameling. These 'urban' expressions represent many years of collecting hard-to-find and specially weathered signage.

The materials employed here are gleaned from ten-foot-high, thirty thousand pound scrap piles. Each of these reflective pearls represents sifting through thousands of ordinary oyster shells. The artist extracts the most important elements of these gems and matches them to create exciting color and image combinations. Lastly, by sawing and filing fine details graphics are highlighted and accented.

Dimensions: 18"

Pentatray by Boris Bally is available at Tabula Tua
