Nick Cave is an artist, educator and foremost a messenger, working between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance. The artist use the dark value of black, sepia, electric blue, fire engine red, and byzantium in this piece of art work.  The material looks like supple and stretchable, mimicking the appearance of animal fur.  Cave is well known for his Sound-suits, sculptural forms based on the scale of his body. The works of the cave made me feel a strong minority character.When I first saw this art I was puzzled. I didn’t understand the real meaning he wanted to express. A soft fabric from a far view, but Cave used wire to filled in. When I look at this piece of work, I feel as if I have entered a wonderful space of rotation, actually he is masking and creating a second skin that conceals race, gender, and class, forcing the viewer to look without judgment.


Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter

This is Art’s thirty-sixth exhibition, Delirious Matter by artist Diana Al-Hadid. Six new sculptures will be installed across Madison Square Park’s central Oval Lawn, and northern reflecting pool. Delirious Matter is the artist’s first major public art project. six new sculptures is really close to modernist principles, the sculpture contrasts with the high building in park, which give me an illusion of entering green cave. They are very three-dimensional and look like paper from a distance. Their porous structure enables viewers to see walls through sculpture. Look from near to the image of a delicate facade.The main color is milky white.
