Nisbet has attempted to reflect the unique architecture of the museum and its serpentine roofline.
There’s a new installation on the back grounds of The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury by local Artist Gary Nisbet. His piece, “Wallflower,” he explains, is like some people – shy at first but, once you get to know them, interesting.
One important aspect of his piece is that it is mostly cinder blocks and fragments discarded from what, at one time, was a United States munitions factory and storage bunker in Hingham, now part of Wompatuck State Park. These randomly painted materials dating back a number of years have been installed as created. Rather than call the colorful renderings on his work graffiti – Nisbet feels this has become a negative connotation, he calls them street art. Observing that the artwork displayed throughout his piece most likely won’t receive gallery representation, he, nevertheless, hopes to pay homage to its various creators.
In his work, Nisbet has attempted to reflect the unique architecture of the museum and its serpentine roofline. He was assisted by five former art students from Scituate High School in preparing for this installation. Currently, he teaches at the South Shore Charter Public School in Norwell.© Copyright 2014 Tanna K, All rights Reserved. Written For: Tinytown Unleashed
