Good art is, art that allows you to enter it from a variety of angles and to emerge with a variety of views- Mary Schmich.
Couple weeks back I took a trip to the, Bowery area. Moving fast, I sometimes forget to stop and look… and living here in, NYC there are many things being presented for your choice of liking. To a pleasant bombshell, I sporadically stumble upon 2 new art home: The Hole & WallPlay. Casually speaking, its not very often for me to stumble upon the idea of running smack into art galleries that are placed right net to each other. Similar interest and different purposes, but stoked to have visited both:
The Hole: Is known to be a ‘creative agency’ that collaborates shops, independent brand, and artist to convey artistic stories…and I can’t forget to talk about the warm cup of coffee given from their
“ Its never enough” disposable cup- Yes! totally screaming that while gazing at my nails, lol.
When I walked into, The Hole I was astonished by voluminous space, but in the back there is a room full of everyday life-like items displayed on the floor. Current minoring in, Anthropology [The study of humans], I was drawn to the sculptured artifacts of culture objects made by, Rose Eken. Her goal is to bring awareness to a lost culture and her arrangements are all placed systematically in favor of that:
