Born in Kaiserslautern, Germany, Vera Lutter moved to New York after receiving her diploma in 1991 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.  She went on to study at the School of Visual Arts, where she received an MFA in 1995.  Her love of New York and its ever changing cityscapes gave way to a most unique experiment.  She turned her loft into a pinhole camera and captured huge images on the interior walls.  Using large sheets of photographic paper, she was able to capture these inverted images in black and white and retained the negative images, which is what we are seeing in this self-titled exhibit currently at The Gagosian Gallery on the Upper East Side.

Points of View

Points of View rests on the Oval Lawn

The Madison Square Park Conservancy is in the last week of their current installation Walks of Life by artist Tony Cragg. British by birth, but living and working in Germany, Cragg designed and cast all of these bronze sculptures specifically for Madison Square Park. Known for his wavy pancake-like designs, each piece is a vivid contrast to the trees, now bare of their leaves, and the surrounding buildings.  On the Oval Lawn sits a tripartite work meant to interact with each other from a variety of vantage points.  Thus the name–Points of View.
