Installation of Chains
Van Doren Waxter presents Doug Young’s wooden sculptures “Chains” in their lobby’s architectural niches. Each sculpture consists of 3 sections of 35-foot chains, which are hand carved Eastern pine and then assembled into seamless chains. The dramatic scale shift and the re-contextualization of the industrial links within a domestic space promote tension between the natural and manmade worlds, and a sense of awe with regard to man’s technological prowess over nature.
On view from September 14 to January 7, 2016.

"Artist Doug Young Attempts to Elevate ‘Low’ Art to Uplifting"
It was an oddly apropos time to be thinking about “high” art and “low” art, which is what artist Doug Young and I discussed at the Van Doren Waxter Gallery uptown just a few days before the all-consuming presidential election.
