52 VARIABLES at the PACE GALLERY
In Chelsea is an exciting exhibition featuring painted facsimiles of large playing cards, oil on aluminum, that have been collected by the artist Keith Tyson and spans a history of 200 years.
It was fascinating to see the large hand made reproductions of actual playing cards used, and seldom noticed by the card players, who are usually concerned with the card game that is taking place. At the Pace Gallery, they are offering a deck of reproductions of these art cards in the exhibition for the low cost of $15 for a souvenir. I doubt if they will have any other value in the art world.. .but who knows?
