Sculptures in the Mist
Construction in the Presidio of the newly redesigned Doyle Drive is changing the views and landscapes around Crissy Field dramatically.
In an unintentional mirroring, eight huge sculptures by Mark di Suvero have been installed for a year's time by SFMOMA in the park fronting the Golden Gate Bridge.
The sculptures look like Erector sets on steroids...
...through from the vantage point of the new Doyle Drive, they are charmingly shrunken and look like a boy's toy project, with miniature people walking underneath.
In another mirroring, the landscape looks like a Diebenkorn painting (who is having a major exhibit at the de Young Museum right now) with its saturated greens, desaturated surroundings and bright red accents.
