THIS NEWLY CREATED CONCAVE VOLUME HAS A SILENT AMPLITUDE WHICH MAGNIFIES YOUR AWARENESS OF YOURSELF AND THE SCULPTURAL FIELD OF THE SPACE. UNDERSTANDING THE SIMPLE DISTINCTION BETWEEN A PLANE LEANING TOWARD YOU THAT IS CURVED AND CONCAVE, AND A PLANE LEANING AWAY FROM YOU THAT IS CURVED AND CONVEX, IS CRUCIAL. THIS ESTABLISHES NEW MEANINGS AMONG THINGS.
ONE OF THE MOST SALIENT FEATURES OF OUR CULTURE IS THAT THERE IS SO MUCH BULLSHIT. MANUFACTURED IN THE USA BY COMPLETE FABRICATIONS LTD.
Richard Serra's defense of his sculpture Tilted Arc - which was removed by court order - is a perfect example of the condition described by author Harry Frankfurt in his fabulous essay On Bullshit: "One of the most salient features of our society is that there is so much bullshit."
On exhibit at Monika Olko Gallery, Sag Harbor NY.
