NEW YORK, NY.- The Garment District Alliance unveiled Window to Infinity, the latest in its ongoing series of public art installations. Created by New York City-based artist Karen Tompkins, the exhibit showcases two oil paintings titled, Infinity Diptych and Infinity.

Located in a street-level window on 28 West 38th Street, the G-System space at the Wheeler Building, the free exhibit will be available to the public through July 29th. Tompkins’ installation is part of the Garment District Space for Public Art program, which showcases artists in unusual locations throughout the year and has produced more than 175 installations, exhibits and performances.

“Window to Infinity is a fascinating installation that combines scientific knowledge with art, and offers viewers an interesting look at the structures of the infinite Universe,” said Barbara Blair Randall, president of the Garment District Alliance. “Karen Tompkins is a tremendously talented artist, and we are delighted to showcase her work through the Garment District Space for Public Art program.”

By engaging with scientific knowledge, Tompkins creates large bodies of work that shed light on nature, from the smallest sub-atomic particles to the largest structures in the Universe. Window to Infinity provides viewers with a bold look at the interconnected energy that forms from the infinite Universe.

Based in New York City, Tompkins has participated in over forty solo and group exhibitions during her career, and her work is included in a number of private, corporate and museum collections. She studied painting and drawing at the Academy of Fine Art in Rome and at the Pratt Institute Graduate School in Brooklyn.
