Toni Nash, Leaning Tower of Brass @ Dumpster Divers Art Gallery on South Street.
Toni Nash, Hand of Time @ Dumpster Divers on South Street.
Toni Nash explained to DoN that her found object construction expresses the concept that people always look to their hands to acknowledge the passage of time. Nash uses hand imagery in her work, “…because what can you do without hands? A baby see it’s own hand, I see stuff and it talks to me, then I interpret what it says.”
Toni Nash, Last Sunset of the Millenium @ Dumpster Divers on South Street.
Nash was intrigued with the last sunset of the 20th century but not the first sunrise, she became involved in an art project involving Legg Eggs and transforming the Titanic ship to look like a rocket and forgot to watch the sun come up on the new millennium. It’s fun chatting with Toni in the eclectic gallery on South Street with the collection of art made from recycled materials surrounding us and hipsters wandering in off the street to check out the unusual art, Nash hosted a long running talk show in the Philly region and has zillions of stories to tell about meeting stars. The gallery is decorated for the holidays with some wack-a-zoid toy assemblages which are enthralling kids on South Street, stop in and meet the artist, she’s really cool.
