The Art of It: Smooth As Silk
Artist Henry Bismuth captures on one canvas the history of the Silk Road—weaving together its many historical segments. Taken together, each image in the work helps to represent the whole.
“They create an assemblage, linking centuries and cultures into the present tense,” says Susan Beers, who with Bismuth has opened the North Salem gallery Turtles & Ravens.
“This is what Bismuth intends. This is his goal—to revitalize, to transform, to make us go beyond our conventional thinking, to explore, to link world’s neighborhoods.”
