Charles Mary Kubricht Dazzles the High Line with Historic Inspiration by Dawn Kay

You may recognize Charles Mary Kubricht’s name or artwork from exhibits held in various cities across Texas, including the Austin Museum of Art, but most recently you can see a new installation by Kubricht at the northern tip of New York’s High Line. Alive-ness: A Proposal for Adaptation incorporates a method of military camouflage, known as dazzle, that was used to during World War I to alter the way ships were perceived, making it difficult to gauge distance, shape and movement. Now, Kubricht has covered large storage containers in a similar, bold black and white design, transforming the mundane into something engaging and inspired.
