In Cyclicscape, Mariko Mori’s sculptural works play with the infinite loop of the Möbius strip as a visualization of our universe’s never-ending renewal of invisible energy. Futuristic and ethereal, the large-scale aluminum and stainless steel works seem to transcend their physical matter. With no beginning, middle, or end, the forms symbolize an eternal cycle of existence — of nature and the universe in perpetual motion.

I copied that entire paragraph from the press release because nobody reads this shit anyway.

Here’s a bonus photo of the artist in a rare performance at the opening night reception, in which we all braved a snow storm to experience!  Lucky us!

"An Economy of Grace" by Kehinde Wiley. Now showing at Sean Kelly Gallery in NYC through June 16, 2012.

Kehinde Wiley is on fire!  His art is in the permanent collections across the country and as is the current art trend, he has not one but two major exhibitions happening simultaneously in New York.  “An Economy of Grace” is showing at Sean Kelly Gallery and “The World Stage: Israel” is showing at the Jewish Museum.

The detail, sizes of paintings and color schemes Wiley uses are great and are very impressive when viewed up close.  “An Economy of Grace” was inspired by the marginalization of African-American women in art history.  In addition, Wiley collaborated with Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director of the famed French couture house Givenchy, who created dresses that Wiley’s models wore.  Kehinde Wiley is not stopping there, however.  A documentary inspired by “An Economy of Grace” is being made and he’s also designed the artwork for singer Santigold’s latest record.  Go Kehinde, go!

Off with that white woman's head!

“An Economy of Grace” by Kehinde Wiley is running through June 16, 2012 at Sean Kelly Gallery, which is located at 528 West 29th Street in New York.
