Thomas Ruff: photograms and ma.r.s.
March 28 - April 27, 2013
David Zwirner Gallery
Thomas Ruff's latest work is shown at the David Zwirner Gallery on West 19th Street in Chelsea. Two series are in the exhibition. The first: photograms, makes its world debut, and depicts abstract shapes, lines, and forms that were made using a custom built software.
In the second, ma.r.s., Ruff has taken images taken aboard NASA aircrafts which depict close-up forms on planets. Ruff has taken these images, digitally altered them and added color, and eventually turned them into 3-D chromogenic prints. The gallery provides 3-D glasses so viewers can get the full affect. If you're looking for a 3-D experience that does not cost you 15 dollars, check out Ruff's large and beautiful photographs on display through April 27th.
