I love the concept of an outdoor museum, especially during this time of year! I think a lot of people share the sentiment, making it no surprise that Madison Square Park has become a destination for art lovers from around the world. Only a stone’s throw from my flat in Murray Hill, for years, Madison Sq. Park was a daily destination for me and my whippets, Rupert and Nigel. A walk there afforded me the perfect opportunity to exercise my creatures while taking in some fresh air and art. Sadly my beloved Rupert and Nigel are no longer with us, but I still find myself strolling through the park almost daily. The most recent exhibition to open (officially on May 2nd) is New York based artist Orly Genger’s Red, Yellow and Blue (think Andy Goldsworthy on acid). Referencing Barnett Newman’s, Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue? series from the late 1960’s, Genger’s monumental commission features the artist’s characteristic painted and hand-knotted nautical rope, creating a work that will transform the park’s lush lawns into colorfully-lined chambers.

My favorite landscape architect, Russell Page, often likened his gardens to a series of rooms—Gender’s creation take this to a whole new level, creating interactive environments that invite visitors to explore both exposed and hidden spaces, encouraging them to navigate and experience Madison Square Park anew.

I’m offering just a bit of a glimpse here to tempt our readers to visit this joyous exhibition in person. Exploring the almost complete installation of Red, Yellow and Blue on a glorious Spring day I’m sporting a Tom Ford era chartreuse suede safari jacket, chartreuse python belt with silver double horse head buckle and white cotton voile safari shirt, indigo ikat pants by Burberry Prorsom, Tom Ford woven olive suede espadrilles, vintage Rolex watch, Gucci aviator sun glasses and my fragrance is Creed Bois De Cedrat.

    Love this, it’s a little bit Christo isn’t it? And look at that gorgeous spring sunshine!

    Hi there Oonagh,

    Yes indeed – or a bit Andy Goldsworthy on acid.

    Cheers

    JA
