The British have come, and it is not too late to catch a glimpse of them before they are gone.
The Blue Star Contemporary Arts Complex is playing host to Phillip King, Philip John Evett and Harold Wood, three fantastic artists from England. The featured show, “The British Invasion,” will be leaving the complex Feb. 12. Make sure you get a glimpse of it before it’s gone.
As you enter Blue Star, you are greeted by the incredibly bold, brightly colored sculptures from Phillip King’s exhibit, “Four Decades of Color.” It features over 20 sculptures and prints created between 1963 and 2011. King is said to be one of the most important sculptors of our time. He pays close attention to the construction of his work. The sculptures are minimal at first glance, breaking down complex shapes and revealing their basic elements. At some points the exhibit is confusing due to the lack of information provided to those who might be searching for an explanation. It might be best to look past any desire for meaning and enjoy the work for its geometric shape, bold design and King’s ability to put together his work. It is well done.
