Gego (Gertrude Goldschmidt), Reticulárea, (1969)

Gego’s idea of a series artworks that would be titled “Drawings Without Paper” reflects on her view of space. Gego considered space as its own form; as if her artwork was occupying the artwork of the room itself. Since her work is made from nets and grid-like materials, negative space is everywhere, causing the negative as well as the positive space to be appreciated. But it is the shadows created by her works that reveal the integral connection between the sculpture and the room it occupies. Gego is thus allowed to play with the idea of the stable and unstable elements of art. The stable elements of art is the sculpture itself, while the unstable elements consist of the constantly changing shadows and the slight movement in her design due to the fragility of her materials. In fact, the way her sculptures exist in space changes every time it was installed because Gego had the power to recreate the image as she wanted.

Her series of Reticuláreas is undoubtly her most popular and most talked about group of artworks. Her first series was created in 1969. Pieces of aluminum and steel were joined together to create an interweaving of nets and webs that fills the entire room when exhibited. Her use of repetition and layering in the massive structure causes the piece to seem endless. Indeed, Gego’s attention to line and space creates a beautiful artwork for the viewer. Since her death, the permanent collection of Reticuláreas is in the Galeria de Arte Nacional in Caracas, Venezuela.

Vlad, Kalush, Ukraine, November 2014
I met Vlad on a bitterly cold November afternoon. He showed me his prison tattoos and gave me a Russian-language novelty American $100 bill for good luck. On his chest he had the words of a Viktor Tsoi song, which translates something like this:
"Outside the window there is sunlight, it is dayWell, I’ve always loved the nightAnd it’s my business to love nightAnd it is my right to go into the shadows”

I love Chicago, so this 1THING automatically made me think of the Cloud Gate Sculpture by Anish Kapoor.
