Orly Genger’s Red, Yellow, and Blue

Artist Orly Genger is well-known for her usage of hand-knotted, paint-covered rope. If you happened to visit Madison Square Park in New York this spring, you may have seen Genger's monumental installation“Red, Yellow, and Blue" sprawling on the park's lawns in bright primary colors. Now this crocheted serpent has wandered into deCordova Sculpture Park, altering 30-acre of land with 1 million feet of layered rope and 3500 gallons of paint. Inspired by Barnett Newman's 1960s painting series Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue?, Genger wants to encourage visitors to travel through the Sculpture Park grounds and engage with the landscape.
