Sterling Allen: The ABC Project

Fresh from its cubicle at the Volta art fair in New York, Art Palace brings Sterling Allen's ABC Project to Optical Project's cubicle in Houston. It's a simple triple-encryption: 26 sculptures encode a creepy-cute alphabet, from which Allen is generating a six-painting phrase that will read: 'big fjords vex quick waltz nymph,' which will include every letter. How Allen gets from here to there is all the fun."
