Press release

There will be an opening reception tomorrow evening, 6—8 p.m. at The Greenwich Library's Flinn Gallery for the show Nathan Sawaya: An Intimate Perspective.

Nathan Sawaya will debut a series of sculptures created exclusively for his first solo gallery exhibit, An Intimate Perspective at the Flinn Gallery in Greenwich, CT, opening Sept. 17, 2009.

An outstanding and emerging contemporary sculptor, Sawaya uses a very unique medium, small square LEGO® bricks, to make surrealistic and individualistic masterpieces. Sawaya transforms this common construction toy into awe-inspiring and thought provoking sculptures. His touring exhibit, The Art of the Brick, catapulted him to critical prominence and garner worldwide media attention by luring record-breaking numbers of families into fine art museums and exposing children to fine art in a medium that they can relate to and understand.

Sawaya’s inaugural gallery collection explores human emotion and whimsy and the complicated interlocking relationship between the two.

“My pieces grow out of my fears and accomplishments as an artist and as a man. The fundamental purpose to my art is to captivate people for as long as I can keep their attention.”

With hundreds of thousands of colorful bricks on display, An Intimate Perspective is sure to be popular with everyone.

Sawaya's show will run for six weeks, Sept. 17—Oct. 28, 2009.
