The Unknown Hipster

A Dreary Saturday in Chelsea

Posted in Art by unknownhipster on March 2, 2010

A tormented, Burchfield-esque vision presented itself on a Chelsea street on Saturday, when the sinister weather puts Art and gallery visitors to the test.

Somewhat less torturous Charles Burchfield graphite drawings are on view at the nearby D’Amelio Terras Gallery.

Hunting rubber boots, worn in various colors, brought a cheerful note to the dark mood of the day.

Melting snow left a handful of Art Lovers stranded on slouchy snow banks with little chance of rescue from gallery assistants.

Ironic wiring in a Banks Violette installation at Gladstone – a sculpture which somehow formally echoed my hat. Being in a mundane state of mind, I wondered how one could vacuum between the wires without messing up the piece.

« Band of Bikers » at Zieher Smith presents a hundred fading 1970s snapshots of gay bikers found by the gallery owner in his building basement, among the discarded belongings of  a recently deceased tenant.

I wonder where Hell’s Angel cap went.
