NY Times drawing review

"That could be rectified by adding more and better works to the collection, but it won't change the fact that drawing is not what it used to be."By KEN JOHNSON

What this shows is how narrow the art world is defined by those who review and display art.

Sculpture lesson 3

Center of gravity. The line of balance in a statue. The mass is in equilibrium when the weight is centered on this imaginary line. A standing figure will not fall if the center of gravity passes through the ear and a point between the feet. Any mass that is projected from the center needs to be offset by an equal mass in the opposite direction. A figure that bends over then will move back in space to find balance.
