Orly Genger Fashions Fishing Rope into Mesmerizing Red, Yellow and Blue Installation at Madison Square Park

Orly Genger

She stands only five feet tall, but her artwork is monumental.  Thirty-four-year old Orly Genger has fashioned 1.4 million feet of lobster-fishing rope into three surging and ebbing sculptures on three separate lawns in Madison Square Park.  I passed them by chance earlier this week in an area of town I only occasionally visit, and I was mesmerized. The installation continues through September 8 in NYC and will then travel to the deCordova Sculpture Park in Massachusetts.
