Red, Yellow and Blue is a new installation by New York based artist Orly Genger. This work features the artist’s usage of intricately hand-knotted nautical rope covered in paint. The 1.4 million feet of rope was collected from hundreds of miles up and down the Eastern seaboard. It combines elements of the coastline with the urban setting of Madison Square Park.
Artist Orly Genger states:
“For Madison Square Park I wanted to create a work that would impress in scale but still engage rather than intimidate. The tradition of knitting carries the sharing of stories and the installation draws on that idea. The repurposed rope brings with it the stories of different locations and by knotting it, a space is created for the words and thoughts of viewers in New York City to complete the work, creating a silent dialogue that waves along.”
