Blustery winds carried a host of folks into ET Modern Gallery for my presentation, ‘Stone and Art in Nature’ on Saturday. So many of them were old friends that it felt more like a party than a slide show. Edward Tufte’s Chelsea gallery is a fantastic venue for informal get-togethers. His latest sculpture series, “All Possible Photons”, shimmers and shadow-dances on the walls.
My talk highlighted contemporary artists whose works explore varying aspects of the natural world. The work of geologic time on the earth’s face was also discussed, as was it’s influence on my constructions in stone.
Thanks to Mahmoud, Andrei, Don, Alex, Ben and Grant for pulling it all together. And special thanks to Edward for the invitation and the inspiration.
