Art In America

A.K. Burns

at Callicoon Fine Arts,
124 Forsyth St

Floral motifs run through A.K. Burns's exhibition "Ending with a Fugue." There's a video, shot at the New York Botanical Garden's annual orchid show, and, more subtly, the 6½-foot-tall sand-and-resin slabs anchored to the gallery floor. The sculptures' gritty exteriors are broken by flashes of color, thanks to pages from a catalogue of Robert Mapplethorpe's flower photographs and colorful natural supplements like bee pollen, spirulina and beet powder.
