Gallery Mondays: Béatrice Coron’s “Elegant”

NYFW SS17 is in full swing! It’s so much fun just walking around Manhattan during New York Fashion Week and seeing all the fashionable people walking about from venue to venue between shows.

I got off the A train at 104 Street last week on the way to my parents’ house and I remembered Béatrice Coron’s stainless steel cutout “Elegant” from the installation On the Right Track. It’s like the woman in the cutout just walked off the runway wearing that gorgeous gown.

Enjoy the rest of NYFW!

Gallery Mondays: Linda Ganjian’s ‘Home Sweet Home’

I didn’t get to see the station art at 111 Street on the A train line until last month. I had honestly forgotten that the station got renovated in general, so it was nice walking onto the platform and seeing Linda Ganjian’s Home Sweet Home stainless steel cut outs on the panels.

What I really love about this is the fact that the design doesn’t end with the house. It continues in a neat border pattern, almost as if the house were being framed.

Funny that I actually was headed home sweet home when I saw them…

Gallery Mondays: Béatrice Coron’s “Kind” at 104 Street Station

Happy Columbus Day! The 104 Street station on the A line was completely renovated a few months ago, which brought some lovely artwork by Béatrice Coron to the platform.

Coron specializes in cut-out art. 104th Street station features her collection On the Right Track, which is a beautiful installation of human-like figures representing different characteristics such as “happy,” or, in this case, “kind.”

I love the fact that you can look at this piece of art and literally see through it. Looking at “Kind” and seeing the landscape through the carvings reminds makes the artwork seem as though it has a much more deeper meaning. Mother Nature is kind, as she gives us natural resources such as oxygen and water. We can see kindness in the woman represented in this piece of art, and literally through her we can see the gifts that Mother Nature gives us.

I also love the way the woman’s robe blends in with the rest if the carvings, making her seem like she’s floating in place.
