Jory Rabinovitz plays with alchemy and chemistry in his exhibition now on view until June 7 at Martos Gallery in New York City. According to the press release he “starts with common US one-cent coins. First separating pre and post 1983 coins, he then refines them to their base metal, copper and zinc, then oxidizes them to produce pigment—copper making Viridian Green and Zinc producing Zinc White. The pigments are bonded in place by fabric, brick and concrete and the cameos of the coins etched onto the metals.” Wow. The exhibition is beautiful – shiny and matte metallics of silver and gold, turquoise and white, sharp and soft edges, as clean and dirty as money itself.
