American artist Brent Green has recreated his vision of Americana in his latest exhibit “Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then” at the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York. This exhibit coincides with a film of the same name that Brent Green has created using stop-motion animation and the results are extremely cool. The story centers around the true story of Leonard Wood, a hardware store clerk from the 1970s who lived in Louisville, Kentucky. His house was filled with a hodgepodge of unusual floors, interesting furniture and vaulted ceilings. Wood’s thinking was that by creating a house that had a healing quality in its twisted beauty, it could save the life of his dying spouse. You can find out a lot more about the film by clicking here and both the film and the exhibit “Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then” are definitely worth a viewing. The exhibit is now showing at the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York at 134 Tenth Avenue through June 5, 2010. The film is hitting the festival circuit, and before the year is up, it’ll be showing in New York, Los Angeles, Berkley and Houston, just to name a few cities. Look for it!
