David Zwirner: 25 Years

In 2018, David Zwirner celebrated their 25th anniversary and, on that occasion, New York was treated with a special exhibition of works by some of the artists the gallery represented over the years.

David Zwirner was the only New York gallery on my radar before coming to the City, because they represent one of my favourite Belgian artists, Michaël Borremans. I went to the exhibition hoping to see some of his works and, sure enough, a couple of his smaller-size paintings were on show. This is one of them, but if you’d like to see more of Borremans’ amazing  work, please hop over to my Brussels blog, for highlights from an exhibition held in Brussels, in 2014.

The sun was setting over the Bahia Honda Rail Bridge

Once part of the East Coast Railway, it connected the Bahia Honda Key with the Spanish Harbor Key. A road was built on top of the railway, so it became part of the original Overseas Highway. Later, a new bridge was built replacing the old route, and the original one was abandoned. Two if its spans were removed leaving a gap to allow boats to go through and glorious sunsets be framed between them.  A perfect picture to take back to New York: an idyllic sunset looking west and a mini rainbow far away, east.

The Seven Mile Bridge

A lone fisherman. A truck. A bird. A tiny island. A bridge so long one can never see its other end. Frankly, I would drive back and forth on the Seven Mile Bridge, even if it went nowhere, just to grasp its enormity. But only in calm weather. I wouldn’t even think about crossing it during a storm. Now that must be a sight to behold!
