Uniting Painting, Ranan Lurie

New York

American artist and cartoonist Ranan Lurie’s piece, made to celebrate the United Nations’ 60-year anniversary, forges a symbolic link between the world’s countries and continents The resin carpet unfurls along the entrance and stairways of the glass United Nations building in New York, arriving at the outside courtyard and plunging into the East River, and then reemerging towards Roosevelt Island.

Intense hues combined in this fantastical work, using resins to create luminosity, materiality and depth.
