Nye + Brown is pleased to present Voluminosity, a two person exhibition with sculpture by Cosimo Cavallaro opening Tuesday, April 9th, 2013.

Cosimo Cavallaro’s brilliantly hued sculptures take the recognizable shape of beans, seamlessly merging color and form with sensuous ferocity. Working alongside master fabricator Jack Brogan, Cavallaro has over the course of a year tested a wide range of materials and methods to refine the impeccable surface and intense colors. While the artist certainly pays homage to work from 1960’s Los Angeles (a la school of Finish Fetish—much of which “Cowboy Jack” Brogan had a hand in making), Cavallaro’s Jelly Beans resonate with an unbridled sense of humor and joie de vivre entirely his own.

Cosimo Cavallaro was born in Montreal in 1961. The son of Italian Immigrants, Cavallaro was raised both in Canada and Italy and attended art schools in each country respectively, as well as the United States. During the 80s and 90s, Cavallaro worked as a television commercial film director winning numerous prestigious awards. Since 1995, he has created a unique body of work from perishables that have been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad, such as Chocolate Jesus and Twiggy in Cheese. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
