The powerful pull of Anila Agha's "Intersections"

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS 
 

Our favorite image from this year's ArtPrize Seven was of this adorable kid walking (crawling)  underneath last year's winner, "Intersections" by Anila Quayyum Agha. He is "not" actually underneath the six foot steel cube, but the angle certainly gives that illusion, and "Intersection" is very much about perspective and illusion. Through December 6, 2015, "Intersections" will also be on view at the Rice University Art Gallery in Houston, Texas. For more details, visit ricegallery.org.
