terrific work. m.

the exhibition ‘altars’ by michael heizer, comprising rarely or never-before-seen early paintings, the ‘altar’ series of new steel sculptures, and negative wall pieces featuring igneous rocks. the american artist largely works outside of the confines of museums, redefining the genre in terms of dimension, volume, material and process. for the exhibition in manhattan, heizer interprets his own words ‘size is real. scale is imagined size’ through a selection of significant past , and monumental new works sited within the gallery rooms.
