DAVID DIMICHELE’S GIGANTIC INSTALLATIONS
There is something so unsettling about these installations from artist David DiMichele. Working on a gigantic scale, these tremendous installations overwhelm the viewer, with a sense of being trapped in the wreckage after an earthquake, where objects can become aggressively suggestive of violence. For example, InCanyon, one see huge cracks in the floor, or Broken Glass where the violence is loomingly obvious. In his more abstract installations such as Euroarch or Hose drawing, a sense of infestation, growth, and refuse set an nightmarish landscape. Are we tiny in comparison to nature? Will we eventually be consumed or trapped by what we have created? Are these the landscapes of the future?
