<![CDATA[Meet the Artists: 'Evolving Terrain' Exhibition Walk and Talk]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/09/25/four-artists-explore-evolving-terrain-in-fort-tryon-park http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/09/25/four-artists-explore-evolving-terrain-in-fort-tryon-park Date: September 25, 2016

Join NYC Parks, Fort Tryon Park Trust and the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance for a guided tour of the group exhibition "Evolving Terrain" in Northern Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park. Meet New York-based artists Anthony Heinz May, Tom Monsees, Matthias Neumann, and Audrey Shachnow to discover the inspiration they drew from the sublime landscape of the park.

The works in "Evolving Terrain" address the natural landscape within an ever-changing city, and hope to create a dialogue between communities, artists, and nature, and the ways in which the natural realm supports the built environment. All four art works will be on view throughout Fort Tryon Park through December 1, 2016.

About the Artworks

"Persieverrance"
Installed near the park entrance at Bennett Avenue and Broadway, Anthony Heinz May’s "Persieverrance" takes the form of a pixelated tree trunk constructed from a discarded log found in Fort Tryon Park. The title is an intentionally misspelled version of the word perseverance, to engage in the compositional reconstruction of natural tree waste found in the park. The title suggests processes observed in the fragmented assemblage and questions relations between nature, humans and technology. The breakdown of the recycled tree trunk into equal-sized units portrays scientific instrumentality involved in the removal of natural material from cycles that benefit all life on Earth, for human salvation and profiteering.

"Tripod"
Tom Monsees’ "Tripod" is made up of three casts of a found piece of rotting wood, situated in the peaceful Abby’s Lawn. It is remade in ghostly matte white in reference to death masks and a homage to the object’s prior life. The wood is elevated to a place of honor generally reserved for well known, and/or well regarded, human subjects.

"Golden Pears"
Audrey Shachnow makes large scale sculptures with the purpose of creating beauty in everyday objects. Her large scale installation of "Golden Pears", adjacent to the Cloisters Lawn, highlights the connection between the importance of the earth's natural environment and its ability to support the food we grow to sustain life. The five oversized Golden Pears invite a dialogue between the trees and the park setting, reminding us of the importance of preserving nature.

"bench V (basics)"
bench V (basics) is a site-specific installation with seating nestled into a secluded, triangular plot of land, near New Leaf Café, designed and created by Matthias Neumann. It continues the artist’s basics series of work, exploring an abstracted notion of form, material, space, and utility. Basics is founded on a constructive logic of additive 2x4 wood studs that allow a monumentality through every-day means. The work can be experienced both as an abstract sculptural gesture and interactive spatial environment. Basics encourages an uncertainty in the dialog between the viewer and the work, opening possibilities in the public quality and appropriation of the work. The temporality of the site-specific intervention is mirrored by the material and constructive logic of the work.

Green Below 14 and SmartSpaces present Isca Greenfield-Sanders: Playground Parachutes, in partnership with the Children’s Museum of the Arts (“CMA”) and NYC Parks, on view until November 1, 2016. This opening celebration will include remarks at 11:00 a.m. and an opportunity to meet the artist.

Playground Parachutes is an installation of four large-scale murals by the celebrated New York-based artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders, made in collaboration with over 200 children at CMA. For this community-based, public art project, the artist chose a single image from her 2008 parachute series. She gridded the image into 72 square tiles and printed them in the four basic CMYK colors – blue, pink, yellow, and key (black) – referring to the importance of the printed image in her work. The tiles were then enhanced with colored pencils by young artists at CMA who explored mark making techniques with CMA Teaching Artists. The colored pieces were returned to the artist, who reassembled the composition.
