Distillation by Roxy Paine. Now showing at James Cohan Gallery in New York through December 11, 2010

New York museum lovers will probably recall artist Roxy Paine’s insanely cool exhibit “Maelstrom” that was on the roof of the Met last summer.  The artist is back with another really great exhibit called “Distillation,” at the James Cohan Gallery in New York.  The single piece starts at the front door of the gallery and continues all the way through to the back offices.  The word “cool” does not even come close to being the right way to describe this work, so obviously you’ll have to see it with your own eyes.

A partial view of a miniature sculpture of the entire piece.

As luck would have it, I visited “Distillation” on opening night and I met artist Roxy Paine.  He was very nice.  Unfortunately, everyone was clawing for a piece of him so I didn’t get to express how cool I think his work is, so I am saying it now!  Thanks again Mr. Paine.

Roxy Paine – Maelstrom

If you are going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, you’ll definitely need to go up on the roof to check out their latest installation.  Last year, all summer long they had Jeff Koons’ metallic heart and balloon dog.  This summer, they have Roxy Paine’s “Maelstrom,” a 7 – ton sculpture made out of stainless steel.  These pictures that follow don’t really do it justice, so please go see it for yourself. You can see additional pictures here.
