Upon my last trip to Dallas I snuck out of the house and took my Dad's old blue Econoline van (classy, cool, and fast) downtown to the Nasher sculpture garden. Here are my fav. artists:
Jonathon Borofsky- Walking to the Sky, 2004 : Giant pole jutting into the sky with little model people sauntering along to who knows where. I could just stare and start at this all day.
Medardo Rosso - Sick Child, 1889 - Rosso cast sculptures but instead of completing his process left the wax molds to stand as his final work. The result is spooky and surprisingly edgy and contemporary looking for being more than 100 years old.
Antony Gormley - Quantum Cloud XX (tornado), 2000 - I like science...I like art. When the two evoke each other I get all goosepimply. Its amazing how simple Ts of steel form a cloudy human shape in this sculpture.
There were many others but these stood out the most. The Nasher seems important and comprehensive but also surely takes itself far to seriously. Is it necessary to rope off all the outdoor sculptures with neon green twine. Am I likely to damage unfinished 3" thick steel that sits outdoors? Bah, for as much as I love art I find it hard to find art museums that I love.
