Preview: Revok "Gilgamesh" at Known Gallery

By - Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Revok is about to show his largest body of work yet at Known Gallery opening July 28th. The show is titled Gilgamesh, a reference to an ancient Sumarian king turned god who directed such feats as building the walls of his city Uruk. Revok’s new works reveal his personal efforts to construct art from the pieces of Detroit. Looking at these process shots from Noah Levy, Revok’s work could be representing graffiti’s role in Detroit’s reconstruction. The use of graffiti woven into collages of found wood, hand painted signage, and reflective barriers may resonate with graffiti writers’ nostalgia for urban dilapidation and its re-appropriation. These collages almost serve as a color palette of Detroit. Source: Known Gallery and Revok1
