Anselm Reyle at Gagosian

by

Last week, I had the pleasure of seeing Monochromatic Age, by Anselm Reyle at the Gagosian Gallery on 24th Street. German by birth, some of his work is re-purposed found objects that tell layered stories of their past. Other pieces are pure and strong, asking to be touched.  While much of his work is a throwback to an industrial age, there is an overlying theme of modernism punctuated throughout. It reminds me of Jeff Koons work in its purest form. No Michael Jackson and Bubbles the monkey here, just sheen and complexity wrapped in uber masculinity. The show ends October 24th. It is worth the trip if you are in need of a visual cleansing.
