Dennis McNett Designs Barneys Windows on Madison Ave in NYCJuxtapoz // Sunday, 27 Jun 2010
Swanky department store Barneys on Madison Avenue, between 60th and 61st, will have the work of Brooklyn based artist Dennis McNett from June 25th- July 12th.
Passersby will be treated to an over sized wolf, owl, and skull masks paired with mannequins dressed in evening wear with a backdrop of psychedelic starbursts and swooping wolfbats.
Dennis's woodcut blocks, prints, masks and paper mache sculptures adorn the mannequins and window interiors. His imagery from nature, folklore, mythology, and story telling mixed with the graphic carved wood patterns from wood block prints sets a very unique stage for the store and this part of town. We hear they are best seen at night, as they have been professionally lit. Some people may hit up Barney's to check out fashion, but we'll be staring at the backgrounds.
