Julian Schnabel’s paintings don’t do a lot for me, but if they give you a little stiffy then you should head over to the cavernous Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea to check out the exhibit entitled View of Dawn in the Tropics: Paintings, 1989–1990, featuring HUGE (and by huge I mean very large in size) Schnabel paintings that are being shown for the first time in 25 years.
Like I said, Schnabel’s paintings (which take up most of the gallery space) were kind of a yawnfest for me, but I was quite charmed by this group of colorful Sculptures displayed in a front room of the gallery, which are by the artist Franz West. They remind me of papier-mâché cartoon ducks.
This one looks like it’s waving Hello.
Franz West’s Sculptures will be on Exhibit through May 31st, 2014 at Gagosian Gallery, Located at 555 West 24th Street in the Chelsea Gallery District.
