The Ocean Blue as Art Abstract

“Ocean I” (2010), an image by Andreas Gursky

Carol Vogel has written an article, part of which is entitled “The Ocean Blue as Art Abstract” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, discussing a series of works by the German photographer Andreas Gursky shown at the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles, four of which have been purchased for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  A wonderful testimony to how beautifully blue our world is, and a painful reminder of the still growing disaster of the British Petroleum oil platform explosion and the rapidly spreading oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Also included in Vogel’s article are short pieces on Moma/P.S.1 and archaic bronzes at Christie’s
