A couple more from Duncan McClellan

St Petersburg, Florida

I couldn’t find any placards to identify these, the top image is a set of glass globes from their students; the bottom one is a close-up of a metal sculpture in the gardens.

(These pictures were shot over a week ago – everything’s shut now and we’re complying with attempts to halt the spread of Covid-19 by not going out except for necessities).

Glass

St Petersburg appears to be a home for many artists working with glass. We saw a demonstration of the art at the Morean Arts Center, all of the above were shot at the Imagine Museum and still to come is the Duncan McClellan Gallery. We haven’t made it yet to the Chihuly collection. Apologies to artists of the works above if I mis-labeled any of the works.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

But the highlight of the Chelsea gallery crawl has to have been seeing, for the first time, the brilliant work of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye at the Jack Shainman Gallery, In Lieu of a Louder Love. I can’t recommend this more highly. Unfortunately, it closed on the 16th, the day we were there, but if you can get to see her work somewhere, run, don’t walk. Here are just a couple of examples and the photographs don’t begin to do justice to the quality of the painting, the texture and the depth of feeling.
