I came across this show recently at Sonnabend Gallery in Soho. The sculptures are made from thick, soft, mostly neutral brown or grey felt, and are hung against the wall by way of sturdy metal grommets. They drape themselves into these beautiful shapes because it is the nature of their material to fall in such a way, but also because of the simple and elegant arrangement of the separate elements. Nothing is hidden about the way these are made, and they are gorgeous.
