For sculptures lovers, the Brooklyn Museum is offering El Anatsui's works till August 4. This is Anatusui's first appearance in a New York museum. His mosaic-like work is showcased with Susan Vogel's other catalog items.

One of his many pieces, Gli (wall), is a series of five separate semi-transparent veils that are made from aluminum bottle caps and sewn together with heavy-duty copper wire. The hangings present a blurred movement on one side while the other gleams of light. While many consider these pieces junk, Anatsui simply sees the world differently then most.

With nearly 30 different pieces of metal and wood, he has transformed simple objects into modern sculptures. His approach to art is by using materials found in daily life. Gravity and Grace is a response to innovative materials created to become abstract art pieces.
