Saturated Colors and Fractured Forms at Park Life
Anzfer Farms, a collaboration between Jonathan Anzalone and Joseph Ferriso, produces handmade furniture with an emphasis on reclaimed wood, strong design, and unexpected moments of color in familiar forms. In the current Park Life gallery show Holz, Anzalone and Ferriso exhibit works from their separate artistic practices along with items from the Anzfer Farms showroom. Whether the show achieves its advertised goal of becoming a “unified work, a house of construction” is debatable, but more interesting than that, it offers insight as to how two very different artistic styles can merge into concrete and usable forms.
