07.20.11 Marina Galperina

Artist Carlos Noronha Feio’s war-themed pieces are similar to the original Afghan rugs that inspired them — tanks, jets, guns, bombs, boom. Feio spins off the genre with a bit more detail, a bit more like hand-woven bit art. Watch the oil/conflict narrative bloom around a nuclear crowd and see his latest epic 3, 2, 1, 0, A A and Away at the group show: “Image Wars,” Various Artists, Jul 21 – Sep 3, Abrons Arts Center, NYC
