Michelangelo Pistoletto

Michelangelo Pistoletto: Serpentine Gallery:
Installation, Mirror of Judgement, London, Contemporary ArtInstallation, Serpentine Gallery, London, Contemporary ArtInstallation, collabcubed, Contemporary Art, cardboard mazeA leading figure in conceptual art, Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto has combined several elements from previous works to create the site-specific installation The Mirror of Judgment at the Serpentine Gallery in London. In the labyrinth of corrugated cardboard one comes upon sculptures/objects that include a Trumpet of Judgement, a Buddha, and a prayer kneeler, to name a few. Pistoletto says the gallery is like a temple – in a spiritual sense, not religious – where we come up against the mirror and are meant to judge ourselves.

From the gallery’s website:

Pistoletto’s exhibition will draw visitors through the galleries, leading them via a winding maze to hidden installations and sculptures. Responding to the architecture of the Serpentine galleries and using an economy of materials, the exhibition will manipulate visitors’ perceptions of space, making them an integral part of the work itself.

The exhibit runs through Saturday, September 17th, so if you’re in London, rush on over and check it out!

Merging tailoring, architecture and sculpture in an inter-disciplinary practice where shapes and surfaces form the space of the garment. This is how the young Elizabeth Delfs presents herself.

Stacy Dynan

Stacy Dynan paintings:
“Stacy’s work has a lightness that is so joyful, it just makes people happy,” notes Lynn Oberstein, owner of Merritt Young Gallery in Ardmore, PA, with–what else–a smile. “Along with the whimsical subject matter, the colors vibrate at a high level and generate a feeling of warmth and fun. Aptly named the “Feel Good” series, Dynan’s most popular collection celebrates free spirited women in motion, bicycling and flying planes through creatively enchanted landscapes; clearly reveling in the magic of the journey–not unlike the artist herself.

Dynan’s work definitely strikes an emotional chord during these stressful times, says Oberstein, delighted to discover and showcase artists who think outside the box. “She left her comfort zone to break through the boundaries of both her own and others’ expectations,” beams Oberstein, the proud parent. “Like their creator, the women in her paintings dare to dream.”
