A Sight to Behold: Alexandre Arrechea at Phillips

This week I had the wondrous chance to see an exhibit at Phillips, a gallery and auction house in New York City. It showcased Alexandre Arrechea‘s salute to several famed city buildings, rendered in sculpture and watercolor. The sculptures are called “small-scale” but that can only be as compared to the huge versions seen outside on Park Avenue in Midtown. Otherwise, these are forces of artistic nature and they were certainly a sight to behold. (The paintings are beautiful too, playful swathes of color, but the sculptures were the main event, at least to me. The paintings were like a candied surprise.) The exhibit was open for only a week and closes today. Here’s a taste from some pictures I took—enjoy!
