NEW YORK – Orly Genger’s massive sculpture titled Red, Yellow and Blue, is fashioned out of 1.4 million feet of repurposed rope the artist gathered from the coast along the Eastern seaboard. Once collected, the rope was hand-knotted, separated into three sections, and each section coated in a primary color. Altogether, Genger used 3,500 gallons of paint to create her vivid installation. The brightly-colored sculpture tunnels throughout the lawns of Madison Square Park, creating passages that allows visitors to explore the landscape in a new light.
Red, Yellow and Blue was commissioned by Madison Square Park Conservancy’s Mad. Sq. Art, and will be on view until September 8, 2013, when it will find a new home at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum outside of Boston.
