El Anatsui @ Jack Shainman
After being fairly consistent in posting for a while, my camera broke and I really lost my momentum. Hopefully I can remedy this and get back to posting images of evolving pottery. But first, I need to put up some photos from a most amazing and beautiful show of sculptures that I saw at Jack Shainman gallery last saturday. The artist is El Anatsui, and these tapestry-like works are very large, and made up of myriad pieces from caps and foil wrappers from different types of liquor bottles. I don't think these photos will even come close to conveying the splendor of the works themselves, but have a look anyway.
