    "A Gathering of Treasures" at the Biennale 

    "Visitors stepping into the Rond Point, the focal center of the Biennale show, will be unable to ignore the display on the stand of Marlborough, whatever their personal interests. Three gigantic works are visible from afar. On one wall, “Three Studies in the Human Body,” an enormous triptych painted by Francis Bacon in 1970, seems to echo the nightmares that still haunted Europe a quarter of a century after World War II and its extermination camps.

    Across the stand, another huge painting greets, or rather hits, the eye. Done in 1958 by Georges Mathieu, the abstract composition is enigmatically titled “Hugues de Payens fonde le temple.” Spiky dashes of black color spurt across the red ground. An even larger painting by Andy Warhol, “Double Hamburger” — 294.6 by 614.7 centimeters, or 116 by 242 inches — covers the back wall. Done in the American artist’s spoofy manner inspired by his early career in advertising, big block letters run between two hamburgers cursorily dashed off.

    With Marlborough’s appearance in the Biennale, the art of the later 20th century spectacularly breaks into what remained until recently the preserve of French artistic traditionalism." - Souren Melikian, Published September 17, 2010

Art dealers, collectors, jewelers and anyone curious about great art can wander exhibitions as refined as the objects on display." - Valerie Gladstone, nytimes.com

    Beverly Pepper Builds Amphitheater at Westchester Estate 

    Photo: Trevor Tondro for The New York Times

    Marlborough artist Beverly Pepper creates land sculpture at Barry and Fran Weissler's (producers of the musical "Chicago") estate.

    "Beyond the home’s formal French gardens are two massive, curved hand-carved panels, set into a grassy hillside like the excavated wall of an ancient cave. Reaching 16 feet at their peak in the center, they create a backdrop for performers when the space is used as a theater. The panels, made of granite powder, a binder and concrete, simulate enormous granite stones.

    “The curve fits into that lush background as a counterpoint to the formality of the garden," said Ms. Pepper, 87, who visits Waccabuc periodically to check on her project." -nytimes.com

    Stephen Talasnik at Storm King 

    Stephen Talasnik’s Stream: A Folded Drawing (2009–2010) was made especially for installation at Storm King. This vast site-specific construction consists of some 3,000 bamboo poles tied together to form a monumental yet intricate structure some 12 feet high by 90 feet long. Roughly kidney-shaped in footprint, it appears to be rolling down the hill on which it is sited. Visitors will be able to walk inside the structure to experience the work, as well as others that are visible through its armature, from a variety of perspectives. Please visit The Storm King Website for more information, photos, video and more.


    Stream is included in a special exhibition at Storm King, 5+5: New Perspectives, on view June 5 - November 14, 2010.
