I’ve been walking by this exhibit for a week or so on my way to work and finally took a few minutes to see it. Amelia Biewald‘s Perfect from now on’ exhibit at the MagnanMetz gallery in Chelsea, includes of a giant chandelier, which captures your attention right away, as well as rotating, life-sized/crystallized animals, intricate drawings and incredibly detailed dioramas.
There’s a thick sense of a dark fairy tale taking place especially with the little worlds inside these beautiful glass bell jars. The huge wall piece, which was inspired by the slow formation of cave structures, shows a meticulous layered process. There is a nice contrast of beauty, time and chaos in this room and I suggest you swing by and check it out. It runs until Dec. 23rd.
