Christopher Cozier

at David Krut,

526 W 26th St, New York, NY 10001

Most of Christopher Cozier's work is firmly linked to Port of Spain, Trinidad, his hometown and current residence, and the new drawings in "In Development," his first New York solo show, are no different. A recurring motif is a cutout based on the circle-and-diamond pattern found in "breeze brick," the unexpectedly decorative concrete blocks used in homes, schools and commercial spaces that have become ubiquitous throughout cities and suburbs. Cozier's drawings feature some permutation of the bricks as well as a patchwork of objects (most noticeably an isolated tree), letters, numbers and washes of color.
