Hugo França at R 20th Century



If you are in New York City before Novemeber 5th you MUST go to see the Hugo França Instillation at R 20th Century. The casulo (Portuguese for cocoon) series of environments are carved from the trunks of awe-inspiringly large Brazilian trees. This series offers the viewer unique access to França's immersion experience of literally climbing into the tree, transporting the viewer to França's perspective by bringing them inside these massive natural forms. It's beautiful and amazing and certainly worth a visit to the Gallery.




these rings are my favorite, what could be more subtle and gorgeous!
