Leonardo Drew’s curse-worthy sculpture (It’s true! While taking these photographs I heard three different visitors swear in amazement when they entered) is on view at Sikkema Jenkins Gallery in New York. Using thousands of wood scraps, he has assembled multiple towering wall pieces with a monstrous wall that snakes through all four rooms of the gallery. A few select pieces are below in order of display.
