My NYC Trip

 

 

 

For spring break I went to Long Island, but we spent two nights in the city. Here is some of the stuff we did and saw.  

 

The first thing we did after a delicious breakfast at Lindy's was go to the MoMA.
I found this work by David Siqueiros, a Mexican artist. I liked that he made reliefs, which is something I'm exploring.

This is actually by Reinhardt, it was in the stuff with the Rothkho works. I liked the size, the subtleties in the colors in the work and the presence it has. I also liked his other pieces in this room.  
 

Here is another of his. The red one is about an inch and a half of bar and canvas. but the line work is so fun.

Some contemporary art we saw:  

Richard Serra- i like the little bits of foam, as to not scratch the floors if they were to move it.

Lynda Benglis

Howardena Pindell-- has glitter on it, pretty intense!

Cai Guo-Qiang's Borrowing Your Enemies Arrows.

Kara Walker

Moritz Waldemeyer  - Lighted LED candles, i wanted to take one home.

And others such as Tacita Dean, Thomas Hirschhorn, Camille Hernst and Bjork.  

Overall the MoMA was very interesting. I saw a lot of old favorites (Starry Night, Waterlillies) and modern works by Warhol and the like. The contemporary work was a great addition to the rest I greatly enjoyed after having taking that contemporary art class. I have a lot of new ideas for some new work.

Later we went to Central Park and saw this beauty. Gold and blue tiled ceilings in the underpass of one of the main bridges.

Then we hit up the toy store and headed back to the hotel afterwords. 

I got crayons from FAO Schwarz. I have such a great time as an artist.

Peace.
