Silver tree

I've shown photos before of the works of the artist Roxy Paine. This is a sculpture of his called "Graft" and it's located in the Sculpture Park of the National Gallery of Art. (I showed one of his trees from the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art last summer and from a display in Madison Square Park in Manhattan a few years back.)

c'est très beau, cet arbre en argent, j'adore. Mais c'est une exposition permanente ?

Awesome photo, Lori! Your choice of angle, the background of the blue sky and positioning of the clouds makes this work in every respect - a work of art in itself!

Five minutes later, I'm still looking at it! The way you framed it and getting in close, a signature of yours, allows the power of the sculptor's work to impact the viewer in a way that informative, but static overall views can not impart.

That is a beautiful structure. I love the mix of organic shapes with inorganic construction material.

That is so unique....almost haunting!

Oui, Olivier. Je crois que c'est une exposition permanente.
