WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: LAYERS

TIPS

When I first stumbled across this large sculpture outside of the Carnegie Museum of Art, I didn’t understand what I was seeing.  I knew I had to return to it with camera in hand.

“Tip,” an immense jungle of boards wrapped with scraps of wire mesh, slathered with cement and paint, and festooned with strips of brightly colored cloth, was created by the British sculptor Phyllida Barlow.  The work swarms a hundred and thirty-one feet across a plaza, almost to the museum’s front doors.

The sculpture is on display at the entrance plaza for Carnegie Museum on Forbes Avenue in Pittsburgh, PA.  It is the largest piece in a series of sculptures she created for art galleries and museums in both Europe and the United States. “TIP” is part of 2013 Carnegie International.

  3. Do you think the sculptor might have had nightmares while creating this?

  4. Now you’ve returned with your camera have you any clearer idea of what you’re seeing? I’ve never seen anything quite like it and would feel quite happy not to again. I look at it and try to take in the size of it and then it strikes me that someone perhaps commissioned this and then paid to have all 131 feet transported across the Atlantic.An old saying ‘A fool and his money are soon parted’ hits me. I just don’t understand modern art.
