Seecond Post of the Day – Roxy Paine
You may remember the Roxy Paine post I did earlier about the pieces he had in Madison Square. He has a new bright silver dendriodic sculpture on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is worth a visit. In this piece the tree tops of Central Park are a perfect foil for the blinding twisting sculpture. People oddly insert themselves into the piece and seem lost in a wilderness. And it's so bright it's hard to see.
His dendroid sculptures can also be seen at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle, the Wanas Foundation in Sweden, the Montenmedio Arte Contemporaneo in Spain and the St. Louis Museum of Art. The tension between organic and man-made environments is usually amplified by his works.
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.
Kurt Hoss is a freelance photographer capturing the exuberance of
New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
Shaw and Hoss recently received an AVA gold award for video production, as producers of The Mermaid Parade.
