New Works in Vinyl

When: Nov. 19-27 2010

Jerome Epstein has been digging through Nashville’s garbage bins. But don’t worry about your credit card statements; he’s primarily interested in industrial refuse. In his previous work, Epstein’s imagination turned trash into anthropomorphized figural compositions. Recently, he has found inspiration in secretive dumpster dives into the cast-offs of a local record press. Molding and forming the textured grooves and epoxy glosses of unwanted vinyl, he has kicked off a thoroughly Nashvillian series of works. Epstein hopes to take album recycling beyond the realm of coasters and kitschy earrings, and his large-scale offerings do just that. Combining melted vinyl with industrial lighting and rigging leftovers, he is well on his way to an interesting postmodern take on culture, memory and waste.
