Broken Obelisk, Barnett Newman, 1963

NEW YORK CITY, March 15 — This month at Gallery Xue / NYC we feature Agnes Sharple, Barnett Newman, and Vaneeesa Blaylock: three silent meditations on the ephemerality of life, hope, dreams, relationships. Three longful yearnings for some sort of transcendent, sublime peace. Spanning 49 years of sculpture and installation we are pleased to exhibit Barnett Newman’s 1963 masterpiece Broken Obelisk; Agnes Sharple’s 2011 installation Last Meal; and a new performance milieu from Vaneeesa Blaylock, Like a Prayer.

I truly live in two worlds. This ‘two world’ concept once posed too much ambiguity for me, as I felt torn as to whom I was. In maturity I have come to find it the source of my power, as I can easily move between these two places and not feel that I have to be one or the other, that I am an Indian in this modern society.
