Edward McHugh at 339
Gallery 339's shows just get better and better, the last show by Tetsugo Hyakutake was great and Ed McHugh's continues in the same tradition..
Eds large scale work is printed on a smooth cotton rag and then mounted on white sintra (at Silicon - duh); then they are "wax diffused" which adds to their ethereal quality. You can almost step inside the images and hear the water.
The internet is great but for looking at large works of art, especially large scale digital prints, it just does not do it. These works really have to be seen in person to appreciate them. You can check them out on-line at 339 but to really "see" them you have to visit in person.
The show runs to July 9th at Gallery 339, 339 South 21st Street.
