The high octane Armory Week is behind us, but not without leaving us feeling exhilarated!
There was SO much art around – some wonderful, some conventional, but overall very engaging. We focused on The Armory Show 2013, ADAA: The Art Show 2013 & VoltaNY 2013 in this season. Here are a selection of 6 more fabulous artworks that made it to our list of favorites from The Armory Show 2013:
Nude #8 by Shinichi Maruyama at Bruce Silverstein Gallery
What you are looking at is not a single photograph – it is a combination of 10,000 photographs! The result resembles smooth calligraphic strokes and is enchanting and unique. Nude #4 captures motion and hold the action in its element for eternity!
Mumbai. A Laundry Field by Kimsooja, 2008 at Kukje Gallery / Tina Kim Gallery
A slice of life in the metro – that’s the essence of this photograph. This is a fabulous presentation of the ballooning middle class in Mumbai, India – hanging, dangling, holding on to anything to keep them in position.
Luminous Words by Airan Kang at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery
Luminous & powerful, the installation looked exactly like the object it was representing – books.
“All my life I’ve looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.” said Ernest Hemingway. Looking at this lighting book installation made us feel that we were looking at books for the first time and well, “in a new light”.
Artist Portrait with a Candle by Marina Abramovic at Luciana Brito Galeria
This photograph emanates the charged current in a way that almost suggests a supernatural hand. It’s unusual in its composition – but then being remarkable is the hallmark of Abramovic’s art.
Patrick Jacobs at Pierogi Gallery
We found a wonderful world holed up inside the wall – an ingenious concept developed by Patrick Jacobs. Placed inside the wall (this particular piece extends upto 24 inches inside), looking into the round glass can be likened to looking through a peep hole. Only, in this case, you are not looking “inside” a room, but “outside” at a whole vista created with excruciating level of detail.
Adam Putnam. Untitled at P.P.O.W. Gallery
It is endless! The pillars entice the viewer to keep on looking for the path, which is the first step towards deception, in this intricate painting. Reminiscent of the Renaissance architecture, Putnam creates a web of columns that seem eager to engulf the viewer!
