El Anatsui from the MCSD #art #sculpture #anatsui

Feast your eyes on the beautiful works of sculptor El Anatsui, recently shown at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art:

"Gravity and Grace" responds to a long history of innovations in abstract art and performance, building upon cross-cultural exchange among Africa, Europe, and the Americas and presenting works in a wholly new African medium. 

They're pretty big.... For reference, 9 year old Kate stands 4' 10" tall these days.

Much much inspiration...

The image above was my favorite.. Reminiscent of Millefiore Glass.... I can't take my eyes off this combination of color! The piece lends a totally different look from across the room (below):
