Round and Round


We also liked this huge polyester resin lens, which is in the “50 for 50” exhibition at LACMA. It is by DeWain Valentine and is titled Red Concave Circle. The view through the lens seems to have higher contrast than normal – sort of like an optical Photoshop.


Other circular artworks that we noticed in LACMA included the Giant Pool Balls by Claes Oldenburg above, and the carved spiral detail on  a 19th century New Zealand canoe below.
