The Visit & The Dance Bobbi VanSpace for Public Art 215 West 38th Street, New York 10018
For the next two months, should you make your way past 215 West 38tth Street, we invite you to pause and take in the latest installation in our Space For Public Art featuring two works from local artist Bobbi Van.
Hanging in the window you'll find, "The Visit" & "The Dance," two examples of what the artist refers to as "soft sculpture," created with acrylic on soft vinyl. Inspired by life’s contrasting elements – movement and stillness; thought and action; arrival and departure – Bobbi strives to capture a space of harmony in her artwork through establishing a balance in light, color and motion, portraying both strengths and vulnerabilities. She crafted The Visit and The Dance on a clear vinyl surface to create a sense of transparency and to explore these dualities.
Originally from Massachusetts, Bobbi currently occupies a studio in the Garment District, and has exhibited her artwork in Mexico, Hong Kong and in other venues across the United States. Her work will be on display at the Flux Art Fair in Harlem beginning on May 13th and running through May 17th.
