Every morning I find myself drawn to my window on the 25th floor by a magical light show overlooking three bridges – Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg. And on out to the balcony with my camera several times, trying to capture “the moment” of the rapidly changing moments of colors and clouds. How could the same view painted over and over hold my interest? How could I paint the masterpiece in the sky with mere oils?? The iconic bridges of New York, sometime mere silhouettes, appear like a backdrop stage set trying to command attention with the impossibly wondrous skies. A tiny police boat keeps watch. Powerful freighters pass, toys against the heavens. Elysium. Empyrean. Eden. Utopia. Fervor. Bliss. Inferno.

Gretchen Bender (1951-2004) was a pioneering artist who worked across video, sculpture, computer graphics, photography, print and installation to interrogate the accelerated age of mass media. Moving to New York in 1978, Bender quickly fell in with the Post-Pictures Generation scene, centered around the artist-run gallery Nature Morte, as well as a milieu of artist and performers connected to The Kitchen. She befriended and collaborated with such figures as artists Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman, the choreographers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, and musicians Stuart Argabright and Vernon Reid. Building upon techniques developed in her years running a feminist-Marxist screen-printing collective in Washington, D.C., Bender's early two-dimensional work, made in New York, ... (read more)
