A wall of color and pattern dominate the large TAM gallery displaying Chihuly's glass works and personal collections. Seen together, the wool trade blankets are a riot of color, pattern, and line that provoke wonder at the infinite possibilities for creating art.
The strong patterns of the rectangles, the solid white ones paired with the holes on the beige wall, provide a great contrast in presence and absence, enhanced by the vertical line down the center. The bushes are a powerful contrast (in form and color) to the patterned background.
The glossy purple sphere seems at odds with the thin, white string-like roots that protrude from one end. But this onion combines the forms of a shaft, sphere, and treads to make an interesting sculpture.
Today (Saturday) is the last day that my installation "Composites" will be on view in the Woolworth Windows at 11th & Broadway. All my installations have their own life cycle--tomorrow I'll be un-installing in the early morning.
