"Tribute to Boulos Richa," the exhibition now up at the Alice Mogabgab Gallery, focuses on the late-Lebanese artist's unique ability to create animated and intricate works out of industrial materials.Richa grew up in the village of Jdabra, overlooking Batroun, where he lived and worked his entire life.After discovering a French technique for working with iron, Richa began to make agricultural tools.In his sculptures, the influence of his training as a blacksmith is apparent as the abstract structures are in fact mechanical parts, altered and manipulated by the artist. This exhibition of eight sculptures from the gallery's collection underlines Richa's distinctive handling of car parts and engine pieces he found, which he combined with soft stone to create strange, anthropomorphic figures.In "En Equilibre," an unidentifiable machine part stands upright on a plinth.
