Central Park Clouds

DSC_9043Olaf Breuning’s “clouds” installation near the 5th Avenue entrance to Central Park, is a cheerful injection of hope for the warm weather ahead.  The blue clouds, the color of a perfect sky rather than actual clouds, are placed above brown limbed trees which are still waiting for their spring foliage to arrive.

Constructed of painted polished aluminium, Breuning had the idea from one of his earlier staged photographs.  The clouds transform this hectic corner of Central Park in to a stage.  The day we visited, we chanced upon a group of people dancing beneath, with Breuning’s dramatic and childlike clouds wafting above like a carefully conceived background set for New York.
