Akron Museum of Art, 1 S. High Street. Akron, 330.376.9185,  “Christopher Pekoc:  Hand Made.” Christopher Pekoc's mixed media assemblages are distinctive among the work of his colleagues in Cleveland and far beyond. At a time when artists are engaging with new media, Pekoc uses humble processes and materials—among them gelatin silver photography, Xerox prints, shellac, sandpaper and punches—in novel ways to create evocative images. He employs stitching to supply content to his compositions, another uncommon approach. Hands in myriad gestures—extending invitation, protecting or playfully balancing balls—recur again and again in Pekoc’s assemblages. These constructions also convey the presence of the artist’s hand in their making, with scarred surfaces as metaphors of our imperfections.
