Artist Jonathan Prince has freshly plopped his two new shiny, shiny sculptures on Madison Ave and they look like fun. These rusty, oxidized hunks of metal have “tears” — laboriously hand-polished, foil-like surfaces that symbolize “time, neglect, forgetting” and can function like fun-house crinkled mirror of sorts, if you’re easily amused or sauced. Or you can go play with that man-made snow if there’s some left at Union Square. Whatever.
Whether or not it’s “the Stonehenge of an advanced civilization,” for gigantic abstract sculptures, they’re pretty dynamic. See Prince’s works today through March 30th at 535 Madison Avenue in conjunction with his exhibit at Cynthia-Reeves Gallery.
