January and February Glyndor House was the site of intensive
transformation, inhabited by artists creating installations that engage
the interior spaces and vistas in unlikely ways. The projects are
influenced directly by the experience of the garden in winter, when the
winds rip through the bare trees, and the raking light, reflected off
the snow-covered lawn, permeates the rooms. Wave Hill and its
relationship to the Hudson River, the Bronx, and New York City is the
starting point for artists who begin with specific places, but employ
distinct methods of abstraction to push the notion of landscape beyond
the traditional frame. The artists include Amy Chan, Yvonne Estrada,
Jeffrey Gibson, Ulrike Heydenreich, Geraldine Lau, Lucas Monaco, Hilda
Shen, Vargas-Suarez Universal, and Amy Yoes.
