Four Trees.


At lunch today I was walking across Pine Street and I passed Jean Dubuffet's Group of Four Trees. I was struck by the contrast of the sculpture's black and white with the lush green of the trees near it on the plaza. I had to go back to work and grab my camera. No doubt, lunchtime is my favorite period.

Ha! Good catch, Alison. I actually didn't notice that myself until I posted it. It looks like skywriting, no?

Go inside the Chase HQ there and view the great series on the architecture of the building and (if I remember correctly) installation of the sculpture. I was so bummed when they took it down for a while. It always looked so crazy and fragile, like it was made of papier-mache. Then you get up close and it's amazing.

DB! Yes.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes! I walk through that hallway every once in awhile when I come out of the subway. Greatness unfolding. What's not to like?
