Crossing Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition “Collision Course” by Bay Area sculptor Peter Hiers in Crossing 360, opening January 25. His sculptures are mixed-media, largely featuring the ripped and torn fragments of tire rubber he picks up from along highways. The destructive waste of daily life is deconstructed and transformed into sculptures with haunting questions and unusual beauty. The exhibition will also debut his new “Landscape Prints” made by the artist using street traffic as the pigment press.
