The opening piece to the Robert Therrien exhibition was this table and chair set sculpture. The exaggerated size was daunting at first, but at the same time very intriguing. Never before have I felt so affected by a piece of art, and it provoked many thoughts. It reminded me of the Alice in wonderland story, about a character being trapped in an oversized world.
This piece was in the same room as the stacked plate sculpture, and is easily overlooked. I was overwhelmed by the oversized furnishings, but I eventually took notice of this subtle piece in the corner. I like the simplicity of it, and it works well as a contrast with the complex nature of the enormous plates.
Jeff Koons has made a series of glass works presenting consumer items in glass cases, removed from any practical purpose. They appear to be in motion, and intrigued me enough to take a closer look. I was somewhat surprised to see that Koons had created such a simple piece of art, as I consider his usual style to be quite wacky.
This image doesn't do the original painting any justice. The rich tones and colours of the piece are truly fascinating, and the extreme content even more engaging. Naturally I am not in favour of paintings, however Salvador Dali has a certain way of capturing the viewers attention through his undeniably abstract compositions.
