Anole Art in Chelsea

Imagine my surprise and delight upon entering the Winkleman Gallery last weekend in downtown New York and immediately setting eyes on this piece of art.  The Anola Star is part of a new show, Binocular, by Leslie Thornton.  Although this work is the only anole, and the only lizard, in the show, there are several images of snakes, as well as other animals.  But the exhibition got even better! I walked into a darkened room to discover that the images also had video counterparts.  Here’s a snippet of the anole piece, which ran for approximately four minutes and then repeated.  Needless to say, this is my kind of art!  The show only runs through Saturday, so run, don’t walk, straight downtown to see it before it closes.  You can read more about the show and Thornton here, and you can see a review in the New York Times here.
