El Anatsui

 Today I went to Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works of El Anatsui at The Brooklyn Museum.

The incredibly beautiful installations took my breath away. Truly stunning works made with found metal objects, glistening with rustic majesty.

I no little of this artist who lives and works in Nigeria, but I was very moved by the vast and dramatic pieces.

One unfortunate thing, I think I missed part of the exhibit, as there are a number of works pictured on the website that I didn't see. I just might have to go back.

Pictured are "Wall" and "Drainpipe" from the museum website, which were two of my favorites.
