Parsons faculty Don Porcaro featured in Confluence/Influence at Dorsky Gallery

Written by:



With its four “feet” at the base, Don Porcaro’s Talisman 16 (2016) is a sculpture that elicits whimsy and dynamic movement, as figure and shrine. Porcaro hand-cuts, polishes and layers each stone and crafts each brass element using some of the oldest materials known to man. This discernible attention and care imbues his work with humanism and sensitivity comprising a long and historic tradition. The sculpture is featured in the exhibit Confluence/Influence: Mingei in Contemporary Abstraction, opening at the Dorsky Gallery in September.
