Aristotle Georgiades’s recent exhibition “Repurposed” featured eight sculptures constructed from salvaged wooden and metal objects. In his artist statement, Georgiades explained that his work uses “existing objects and repurpose[s] them into expressive sculptural forms,” adding that most of his sculptures “make reference to our continuous desire to move through life with purpose.” He sees his repurposed objects as “a metaphor for our human need to adapt and change directions when confronted with obstacles or failures.” In Old School (2010), he constructs a cube from sawed-up wooden school desks to create an interior space full of odd-shaped forms that we see at different angles and depths. …see the entire review in the print version of January/February’s Sculpture magazine.
