untitled (snow) 2015

Barry looked through the window onto our snow-covered roof garden this morning and announced, "you can see the snowflakes!" Since he was a few feet away from them, I was a bit skeptical, . . . until I got up and looked for myself, and there they were.

I hadn't re-set the ASA or the image quality before I took a few shots from one foot above the blanket lying right outside the breakfast room with my little Nikon, so the picture above, while it does show some snowflake shapes, became less a meteorological document than an art abstraction. Other than darkening it, in order to make out the shapes even better, I played very little with the image.

I see stars, galaxies maybe.


Some of Kristen Jensen's sculpture is currently part of an interesting group show, 'The Curve', at Wallspace Gallery in Chelsea. The works are shown above, almost certainly in the artist's own elegant arrangement. They are made of porcelain or stoneware, with the exception of the piece on the left, whose materials are described as campfire ashes and brass. They are titled, clockwise from the left, 'Portable Black Hole', 'Steady, Steady Man', 'Dad Nose', 'Shim', and 'Bell'.

The other artists in the show, which closes January 14, are Jan Groover, Zachary Leener, Rebecca Morris, Monique Mouton, and Matt Paweski.
