"sky cathedral" louise nevelson 1958
the moma abex exhibition is glorious, as expected. what i didn't expect was louise nevelson. nevelson's stunning "sky cathedral," a beautifully stark 11x10 foot sculpture, undeniably steals the show. the monochromity provides unity, a bold use of visual consistency, but it does not hide the intricate variety of the individual found pieces that assemble this prepossessing piece. all my ideas about texture, assemblages of found objects, + the color black -- i had no idea i had been stealing from nevelson. i'm stupidly infatuated.
