"There was never enough time."
Last summer I had a wonderful opportunity to intern with fine artists Kahn & Selesnick based in Hudson, NY. Here is the NY Times review of the installation created for the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme Connecticut for the Animal/ Vegetable/ Mineral show held June 8- September 22, 2013.
"The centerpiece in this room is a contemporary work by the duo Kahn & Selesnick(Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick): an installation comprising photos, drawings and a sculpture depicting a modern-day take on the Greenman, a figure from European folklore that suggested a kind of fertility figure (Sir Gawain and the Green Knight derive from this lineage). In addition to photographs like “Cabbage Head” (1997) and “Yew Man” (1997), which recall the vegetable portraits of the Italian artist Arcimboldo, there is a table with two “Greenman” figures (2013) seated at it: one made with oak leaves, the other with moss."
