I'm making my first studio visit for my next curatorial project. So, later this afternoon, I will be visiting Eric Rhein's studio. The thing about Eric's work that I love is how easily one is captivated by the simplistic nature of the wire he uses to create his art. These elegant creations are breathtaking in person and I think will be a brilliant edition to my show idea. Having met Eric at the Visual AIDS benefit, Postcards from the Edge, I look forward to our meeting to discuss his work.
