New York.- James Cohan Gallery announce Roxy Paine’s One Hundred Foot Line (2010), a new permanent public sculpture installed at Nepean Point at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, as well as an exhibition of selected works by the artist that opened on February 12 and runs through March 27, 2011.

The National Gallery of Canada recently acquired One Hundred Foot Line, a work from Paine’s critically acclaimed Dendroid series, for its Contemporary Art collection. This work is a stunning and dramatic addition to the capital city’s skyline, made possible in partnership with the Canadian National Capital Commission (NCC). As the National Gallery of Canada describes: “Made from unyielding, stainless steel pipes used in manufacturing and heavy industry, One Hundred Foot Line is a masterful example of Paine’s intense fascination with trees and his technical ability to create sublime structures from industrial materials. One Hundred Foot Line presents a meandering tree trunk that has lost not only its leaves but all of its branches. The tallest of Paine’s Dendroids to date, the artist has welded together dozens of stainless steel cylinders into a seamless whole.”

In conjunction with the celebration of One Hundred Foot Line, the National Gallery of Canada presents an exhibition of selected works by Roxy Paine, featuring the artist’s renowned machine work, Painting Manufacture Unit (1999-2000), a recent installation from his Replicants series, Oscillation (2010), and a grouping of preparatory drawings for his Dendroid sculptures. This exhibition showcases Paine’s diverse approach to art-making, in which he mirrors natural processes, drawing increasingly on the tension between organic and man-made environments, and between the human desire for order and nature's drive to reproduce. Collectively, Paine’s works demonstrate the human attempt to impose order on natural forces, depicting the struggle between the natural and the artificial, the rational and the instinctual.
