The pops of color in the pillows and art, pictured above, bring a dynamic quality to the room. “Dynamic” brings to mind too, this beguiling, three dimensional work of art on loan from The Glass House which was a part of the recent exhibition celebrating Frank Stella at the Whitney. It’s a visual flight of fancy, swooping and shimmering with glitter and glass, metal and enamel, the jewel tones commanding our attention. Named “Khar-Pidda 5.5x” the piece is one of a series inspired by the exotic birds seen during the artists residence in Ahmedabad, India. The Khar-Pidda is a brightly plumaged bird and knowing this, the art seems all the more enchanting. Like many shows I’ve seen lately, the most impressive aspect of them all is the diversity of work, the prolific nature and constant creativity of the artists. I was familiar with the grand/XL/ color banded/geometric paintings by Stella, and this show opened my eyes to the diversity and dimensionality of his greater oeuvre.
