When you enter the spaces in question you get an immediate sense that you are viewing a series of long lost artifacts – possibly a key to the past, possibly the future. This is due to a unique approach to historical narrative in the artist Terry Adkins' work. In the case of this particular exhibition, he was inspired by the strange similarities between American renaissance man George Washington Carver and modern art innovator Yves Klein. Even if you choose not to attempt to decode the complex systems within the work itself, you will certainly still enjoy how beautiful the individual pieces look placed around either of the gallery's New York locations.
