camminando | Walking Through Geometry, Stars and Moon

I walk to Chelsea. My main destination is Frank Stella's exhibition at Marianne Boesky Gallery. His sculptural work explores star polyhedra. Uncannily the word "Stella" in Italian means star.

Polyhedra and other geometry inspired sculptural forms at "Frank Stella"
 Another geometric encounter is the exhibition "Modulated Space" at Luhring Augustine of the Brazilian artist Lygia Clark (1920-1988). Lygia Clark was a founding member of the Neo-Concrete movement, whose work revolved about geometric abstraction, non-representational and mathematical art. Uncannily Lygia Clark's ouvre shares commonality with another Brazilian artist with the same first name, Lygia Pape, whose work is currently shown at a remarkable retrospective at the Met Breuer.

My visual memories of the day end with the full moon framed by buildings of 14th Street
Total walk length: 4 miles
