Are you looking for a peaceful escape from the ceaseless street noise of traffic and jackhammers? A few moments of quiet reflection? The Gagosian Gallery‘s current exhibition, Henry Moore: Late Large Forms, might be just what you’re looking for. It provides a wonderful, if temporary, respite from the cacophony of city life.
The familiar organic shapes of Moore’s bronze sculptures put me in mind of an alien landscape, strewn with monumental biological forms. Arguably the most striking piece, the ceiling-grazing Two Large Forms (the green sculpture at the bottom of this page), would be particularly at home in the Prometheus universe.
Entry is free and, unusually for the Gagosian, photography in this particular exhibition is allowed – another good reason to stop by.
Henry Moore: Large Late Forms ends 18 August 2012. You can find the Gagosian Gallery at 6 – 24 Britannia St, WC1X 9JD (map at bottom of page).
