Al Farrow: New Reliquaries. Religious sites built from ammunition and firearms.

May 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

San Francisco artist Al Farrow uses ammunition and parts from firearms to build miniature churches, synagogues, and mosques. This is heavy stuff, literally and figuratively. Meighan over at My Love for You just stopped by Catherine Clark Gallery where he’s showing some of his latest work, and captured some awesome shots. The show runs through May 28.
