For those of you in NY or who will be in NY during the run of the show, I
highly recommend Fred's art. Just sorry that there is not more on display.
Fred mentions losses viewing his work on the web. One of the main losses
just viewing on the web is that they are generally large pieces and seeing
them large is crucial. Another loss is that several (including the ones on
display) rely on being able to move "across" the images - letting your eye
or body move along the piece taking in the images sequentially. This imposes
a "time" element on the works that is also crucial.
