From the MG summer intern~~
Super new to the Chelsea//gallery scene, I trekked out yesterday under ominously dark skies in search of aesthetics, inspiration, and a cup of coffee. Where I ended up—Bryce Wolkowitz gallery, 24th st—felt refreshingly relevant to my architecture background while dramatically overwhelming to my casually aloof, Tuesday afternoon disposition.
Bryce Wolkowitz is showing a super massive installation and sculpture series titled Viewpoints by British Artist Robert Currie
, consisting of strands of nylon painted black to create imagery, space, and distorted perspective. I don’t know whether it was a reflection of the artist’s purpose, the inherent flaws of human perception, or perhaps my bodily dehydration, but the experience left me somewhat dizzy (albeit very aesthetically satiated).
Super mod, super Brit. From the perspective of an architecture student, probably an experience I will speak of in nonchalant tones during a crit next fall as a means of leaking pretention and coyly distracting my professors.
It had me wishing, if only for an instant, I still perceived the world as a 14-year-old boy fascinated by all tricks of perception and objects of grandiose scale//magnitude. That said—completely worth checking out for the incredible attention to detail and innovative means of projecting architectural imagery.
