When viewed at a distance, unfortunately difficult to do in the long hallway where this was displayed – but the long view below will give some idea, this image by Karel Martens gives an impression of a skyscape with fluffy cumulus clouds, but it is made up of these little glyphs, like in a half-tone printed image.
22nd Street and Tenth Avenue, New York
Next we saw some Ryan McGinness works at 2 different Miles McEnery locations first on 22nd Street (above) and then a massive installation of 72 panels on W 21st Street.
After Billie Zangewa (see last post) we went upstairs and took a quick look at OSGEMEOS Portal. Not really my thing but there was certainly a lot of vibrancy.
The first stop on our gallery tour yesterday was Lehman Maupin to see Billie Zangewa’s Wings of Change. These are works of a South African artist, working in silk collage, dealing with the world of Covid-19 isolation. I’ve tried to pair most of the works with a close-up, detail shot to show how these magnificent works were created.
And after the greenhouse you emerge into the gardens where further works of glass art are integrated into the gardens. It’s all quite remarkable. After the gardens, of course, you can’t exit without passing through the gift shop where you can buy an amazing array of Chihuly “merch” as it’s been abbreviated these days, ranging to thousands of dollars for actual glass.
