I really dig this Split Star public art installation by Art legend, Frank Stella. As public spaces are opening up in NYC, this is one of the new attractions at the World Trade Center. It is currently being installed at the Silverstein Family Park. This is pretty exciting! Would love to see this in person. Not just because the art is fabulous, but for what it represents.
He was influenced heavily by the Abstract Expressionists like Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline even though his work is a direct reaction against it. He preferred to use less paint, for one thing and He preferred to represent a picture of “the object” itself rather than a mere representation of “the object.”
