"Eye of the Beholder:" UR NEW YORK Art Installation at Woodward Gallery

The Eye of the Beholder, the latest work of Ski and 2ESAE, is the artists' attempt to "symbolize the struggles within achieving greatness." Always trying to appease the constant demand to produce, the collective shares their latest piece in a public setting directly across from the Woodward Gallery Project Space on Eldridge Street in the Lower East Side. As you approach the space the audience is confronted with Eye of the Beholder, which literally stares right back at you as your eye is drawn to the center of the installation. We then see four panels, upon corrugated metal, an architectural element of the cityscape familiar to any artist with deep roots in graffiti writing; the realness that this collective has never let go of. Taking on a new technical style of execution, the duo works with a projector, but paint everything by hand, which thus results in a well balanced piece that considers "concepts of symmetry and an understanding of the tug of war between success and struggle."
