Bodies in Motion

Check out Figurations: The Fashion District's Pilings Project now in Midtown on 7th Avenue- An amazing collection of resin, figurative sculptures by Joan Benefiel . The sculptures reference Manuel Neri's and other midcentury modernist figurative work, but take on a new dimension in the color-saturated, semi-transparent resin. Against the hard geometric skyscrapers, amid the oppressive NYC heat, each gesture seems childishly heroic and Kool-Aid's the most fun we've had in midtown in a while!
