Contemporary Wreaths On View in Central Park
Once again we participated in the New York City’s Parks and Recreation department 28th annual Wreath Interpretations. Here are some of the wreaths from the exhibition.
For All Farmers by George Kroenert; apple cardboard, snap ties, mason’s line
The City’s Parks and Recreation department opened its 28th annual Wreath Interpretations exhibition at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park on Thursday, December 9. The show runs through January 6, 2011.
In modern America, a wreath is a mark of the holiday season. Round boughs of evergreens adorned with acorns, berries and ribbon–essentially the little sis’ to the Christmas tree. But Wreath Interpretations pushes the boundaries of tradition. There are 30 wreaths on display this year and there’s not a traditional one in the bunch. Each one is an artistic interpretation of what a wreath is. The only common theme is the circle pattern.
Celestial Celebration by Larry Hagberg; hammered steel
“The ones that are hanging up run the gamut from really lighthearted to religious to darker things that we don’t traditionally see in holiday decorations,” said Adam Kaufman, a Parks and Recreation employee at the exhibit. “There’s not one definition of the holidays and all these pieces express a range of emotions that are all just as valid and speak to the holiday season as much as any of the others.”
Giant Sea Serpent Wreath by Takeshi Yamada; taxidermy jaws, galvanized steel, acrylic paper, synthetic polymer, sands of Coney Island
Birkenwald im Winter by George Pisegna; natural birch bark, balsam wood and artificial greens
Wreath of Corks by Leonora Retsas; wire, corks, foam, ribbon
