New York Art Shows

I spent several hours taking in the art at The Armory Show and SCOPE today.  There was so much amazing art, it’s hard to know what to share, but I was drawn to pieces that fit two themes: pieces made from unusual or surprising materials and layered pieces that change as you walk around them.

Augusto Esquivel (below left) creates sculptures from buttons that are suspended from the ceiling or a shelf.  And Federico Uribe (below right) makes whimsical sculptures from colored pencils.
