Abraham Cruzvillegas 'Empty Lot'

Details

The progressive instillation 'empty lot'  by Cruzvillegas started as boxes filled with dirt and some seeds. As this piece has gone on,  plant life has sprouted and  the artist has proved a natural progression of life. As busy workers come in to take a brake and observe artists, this piece I think causes you to take minute out to experience how the life grows, but had been sectioned off in a very man made way. In doing this the artist has combined a natural process with an urban farm and the consistent diamond pattern that's very angular, put in place to divide  the plants, for me displays how we neatly package things 'AROUND' our lives in the urban city. but when you break it down, it's a simple life that's dependant on water and light not barriers.

Andrea Bowers 1965

I liked the temporary aspect of this piece, the cardboard boxes act as a canvas for the printed image. There is some sort of old English biblical passage being displayed, that refers to the current state of the government. The cardboards qualities which are   not designed for durability are forgotten as they act as the page for the print to be displayed and nothing more.

An American Tribute To The British People 1960-4

Details

This being sprayed in gold alters the aesthetic. The seemingly random order of the piece is covered with a layer of gold coating, confusing the overall appearance of the piece. This is because of how the discarded materials are aligned, they take the appearance of a decorative wall or door, but in actual fact are lots of selected bits of products. 

The piece being dated over four years suggests it took a long time to source these materials, which means they must have a general theme and a specific shape that the artist wanted to show.

Black Wall 1959

Details

I found these pieces very playful and likeable, as the artist has used lots of familiar items, that take more observation to see clearly. The one colour tone categorises all of the objects together but when studied further they can be broken up into classes. I also found the boxy rectangles containing the items very useful to break down sections, these are the structure of the 'Black Wall' but i think also add to the message of diving these things.
