Roxy Paine: Maelstrom


Went to the Metropolitan Museum not to long ago to take a look at the Francis Bacon: A Centenary Retrospective exhibition, The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion exhibition and lastly, Roxy Paine on the Roof: Maelstorm. I must say, Roxy Paine's special exhibition was very appropriate for a nice, hot summer day. I came on a cloudy day, which in my opinion allowed us to witness his sculpture or gigantic installation in a more dramatic light against the gorgeous backdrop of Central Park. As for the piece itself, I think the trunk of the sculpture is very masculine but the thin branches makes it uniquely elegant. Very interesting and I definitely recommend it--a must see summer exhibition!
