You pick them up off the ground, marvel at their colors, perhaps pocket a couple hoping by some off chance they might stay pretty for a while longer. They never do. In fact, the speed at which autumn leaves shrivel and brown never fails to surprise you.Each street has a particular collection of plants and trees that results in its own palette and variety of leaf shapes, just as neighboring countries might have different languages and modes of dress. These luminescent, almost painterly portraits of leaves will be shown together for the first time in Genius Loci, Bovo's second solo exhibition at 440 Gallery. Opening on Thursday, October 24, 2013, with a reception for the artist from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, the exhibition will run through Sunday, December 1, 2013. The 440 Gallery is located at 440 Sixth Avenue, in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.
