Gagosian Gallery will be featuring celebrated architect Frank Gehry’s work from the 16th January till the 1st March. Known for his imaginative designs and creative use of materials, Gehry’s spectacular works are always conceived as dynamic rather than static structures. He is known for his life-size handmade light fish lamp sculptures that he has been making since 1984. The first Fish Lamp was inspired by the shards from an accidentally shattered plastic material, which reminded the artist of the fish scales. The fish has also become a recurrent mofit in Gehry’s work ever since.
