Gallery Hop This & That


Birdfeeder on the Highline From A Corvallo A Day ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

Also on view currently is Walton Ford's latest show at Paul Kasmin Gallery in Chelsea.
Looking at new works by three of my favorite artists today (Simen Johan, Ryan McLennan & Walton Ford) I felt that all three were stretching or eager to stretch themselves. It is interesting to follow an artist over the years and see their process and evolution and perhaps even struggle.

We walked home on the Highline, which while very modern is really a great feat for New York. If you never saw the Highline before it was turned into a park, I recommend Joel Sternfeld's book Walking the High Line (with an essay by Adam Gopnik).

I thought the pic you took was Simen Johan's! We went to see it too yesterday. The day before I saw Saydou Keita and August Sander at the Walther Collection. Classic inspiration at its best.
