Retro Sketch

These sketches were done in 2004, when the renown landscape artist Christo turned New York City’s Central Park into an otherworldly and ethereal experience known as The Gates, draping the vast walkways of the park with randomly – yet smartly placed – orange overhanging frames from which orange fabric was hung. It’s one thing to see the work of a master hanging on a museum wall; it’s quite another to walk through the vision of a master whom has draped landscapes and structures worldwide. These sketches here might not do the experience justice, but they are my memory points of having been a part of something truly amazing, to witness and be immersed in art history as it was happening live.
