I’ve had art on the brain recently. You’d never know that I have a B.A. in Art History from my career path. I took these pictures of Alice Aycock’s sculptures (while driving) down Park this morning. There are seven in total: six between 52nd and 57th streets, and one at 66th in front of the Armory. According to Aycock “I tried to visualize the movement of wind energy as it flowed up and down the avenue creating random whirlpools, touching down here and there and sometimes forming dynamic three-dimensional massing of forms. The sculptural assemblages suggest waves, wind turbulence, turbines, and vortexes of energy.” Very cool.
I’ve been meaning to profile my friend who is an art consultant for a while now. She has a number of Sally Mann photographs that are to die for. And there are some great exhibitions around town, I’m going to grab some friends and hit the museums/galleries. TBC.
