A CAPILLACEOUS UNDERTAKING
by John Drury
Visitors to the Gudjon Ketilsson exhibition, "Extensions of the Head," at Luise Ross Gallery on West 25th Street in Chelsea are likely to stop dead in their tracks at the sight of a gargantuan -- well, one meter long -- cord of braided, knotty hair hanging inside the door. Size does matter, and it would be a brawny lad indeed who would sport this rattail. Carved from mahogany and varnished, The Braid
(2003) suggests that the rest of the giant may be waiting elsewhere inside. We proceed cautiously, expecting big things.
