Elbow Toe at Black Rat ProjectsJuxtapoz // Sunday, 13 Mar 2011
Juxtapoz' London correspondent, Butterfly, made it out to Brian Adam Douglas, aka Elbow Toe's opening at Black Rat Projects this past week. The solo exhibition, Due Date, coincides with Elbow Toe's new book release with Drago Publishing.
This is the first UK solo show from the Brooklyn-based Elbow Toe, following an exhibition of intricately collaged works that was previously shown at the Warrington Museum in the UK. As Black Rat writes, "Just as he builds a finished image through the meticulous layering of tiny individual bits of coloured paper, so the meaning of the image is woven through layers of references to historically and culturally established narratives. This kind of intertextuality has become the foundation for the development of his distinctive style."
