Silas Finch Sculptures On Display At Hope Gallery

Silas Finch is a local sculptor who grew up in Cape Cod.  His father dealt antiques and Silas was surrounded by strange old objects thoughout his life.  It seems natural that he would learn to build new things with the old stuff.  Materials he likes to use are old newspapers, skateboards, old devices, twine, leather, bones, old wood, nails, musical instruments, type blocks.  If you watch the slideshow, you'll recognize some of these materials in the pieces.

His work is on display at Hope Gallery, which is in Morris Cove.  Check out the slideshow below.

Hope Gallery has a great blog, too.  Check out this article, it's a compilation of tattoos where incorrect grammar and spelling is highlighted.
