MAN are preparing to host Peter Sutherland tonight as the New York based artist puts together a new body of works for the exhibition. Entitled “Colorado Snowstorm,” referring to the ski trips in the area from the 90’s, this makes for particularly good viewing with all proceeds from the sales of the show are going to the “Fresh Air” Fund.
“If I had to make a title for the show I guess it would be “Colorado snowstorm”. You can see that the post card in the show is all blank, as many of the references are based on an early 90′s ski trip. I like the look of the ski equipment from that time. The rocks can symbolize cliffs and extreme terrain while the ice is for the days that it doesn’t snow. I tried to bring an element of fashion with the hats and blankets as well– I am good friends with Romain and Antoine and this was a great opportunity to work wih them and perhaps raise some money for freshair.org in the process.”
