Luis Mallo’s large-scale urban landscapes (most made in his Brooklyn neighborhood) are cleverly realized perceptual puzzles. In each photo, chicken wire, slats, net or fencing of some sort occupies the picture’s foreground, interrupting but not entirely obscuring our view of the factory, parking lot or construction site beyond. Like a curious passerby, our eye is drawn to the open spaces and tears in these heavy-duty scrims, and Mallo invites us to fill in the entire landscape based on the strips and swatches we see. Both thwarting and redirecting our vision, the work is as perverse as it is engaging.
