[chuck] in Art, Clinton De Menezes, Metropolitan Museum of Art

Close-up of a large piece by South African artist Clinton De Menezes at the Metropolitam Museum of Art.  Entitled "Procession (Exodus)", the work fills an entire wall with hundreds of little figures on a background of oil paint, ash, and mud. Creative lighting accentuates the figures with dramatic shadows.  Spent a long time gazing at this. [NOTE: Go here for a nice slide show of the installation].
