Afternoon in Chelsea
The overcast sky did not dampened my determination to make it to the Jack Shainman gallery in Chelsea to see Toyin Odutola's solo exhibit of her large ball point pen drawings, which are as breathtaking as you would expect them to be.
Across the street, I was happy to discover that the Joni Moisant Weyl gallery had collected all eight pieces of Robert Rauschenberg's Hoarfrost Editions 1974, all together for the first time since being first displayed in 1970s. Rauschenberg is one of my major inspirations and it was an "a-ha" moment for me when I saw these collages were actually executed on delicate silk scarves. No medium is off limits when it comes to collage.
