Seth Koen

Artist: Seth Koen
Gallery: Gregory Lind Gallery
Exhibit Dates: January 24, 2008- March 1, 2008
Address: 49 Geary St, Fifth Floor

Seth's pieces from 2005 are most interesting to me. When I saw the second image I have posted here, my immediate thought was that he should be showing his work in broken decrepit warehouse buildings.

The intense colors of his thread sculptures take on a whole other creative life when placed next to the unfinished ceiling below.

When I see them, I think wormy insect meets cell-like life form.

The white walls in the gallery for this exhibit work well; as his sculptures, here, resemble more fragile bones and 3D outlines of what may come or has been.
