    If you build it, they will come and boy did the art folks showed up for the first solo exhibition of British born but now based in Sunset Park, Brooklyn artist – Jeff Landman – for Working on a Building last January 16th. AF came into the space of Tracy Williams, Ltd. to find all his sculptural installations perfectly staged as the art cognoscenti hovered about with their wine glasses and did not dare to put one on top of the handcrafted wood tables. The very austere forms of his work recall the installations of Donald Judd who is but one of his numerous influences. But not for very long that everyone got comfortable and started to sit then lounge about zealously on the wood chairs with slightly different leg angles. It is the new interaction of art and what purity in structure brings out in the art crowd. Was it a contemplative statement on the forms Landman created or the religious experience of what entails another Thursday night in Chelsea? One’s experience is built upon perception and there are a million of them. Hopefully, it is to be connected to the experience of looking at something, which changes your thoughts or how you see the world around you. That’s simply divine!
