DESCRIPTION

Join David D’Ostilio at Open Source Gallery as he demonstrates his skills using old fashioned tools, a rite passed down to him by his grandfather. “The Chopping Block” is both an homage to his own past and a critique of perceived notions about gender roles. The artist will play the role of lumberjack, donning the stereotypical clothing, bringing in a 10-foot long log and sawing it into smaller pieces and then chop the stumps into firewood with an antique axe.
