The Super Moon™ is such a beautiful, fitting way to begin the first week of Autumn in NYC. Change will be significant. Embrace your positive energies.
My week in images;
My first stop this week was The Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea & the Greene Street Mural.
Roy Lichtenstein painted this in 1983 & destroyed it after 6 weeks. It’s been 32 years, but the images still speak his message just as clear, one I’ll let you define on your own if you check it out before it’s newest 6 week residency concludes on October 17th.
The worst thing a New York resident can do, is ignore it’s aesthetics. This is a stressful city. Look around. Remember why it’s the best one in the world.
‘Come, Sweet Death’ is an exhibition at Shin Gallery that inhabits John Baldessari’s “A Fix’d Inflexible Sorrow” by translating elements of his work through the existential lens of Jean-Paul Sartre.
“Play” in the ball pit while the sound of JS Bach’s come sweet death reminds you of morbidity & your own loss of innocence.
It sounds like a downer, but it’s a freeing experience.
Vinyl sidewalk sales, back streets & East River Park played the prelude to my Sunday as I mentally prepare for another week in the World’s capital. Williamsburg has such an awfully pretentious reputation, however, likely created by people who avoid it. One of the most visually stunning areas of our oasis.
And now, to further wander our many boroughs. ✌🗽❤
