Sol LeWitt
Loopy Doopy
(Blue and Purple) 1999
Medium TK
100 x 80′

Loopy Doopy (Blue and Purple), a wall drawing by legendary conceptual art­ist Sol LeWitt, is the most dramatic of the artworks at Conrad Hotel. Rising thirteen stories above the atrium level, LeWitt’s undulating lines of royal blue and vibrant purple offer the viewer a mesmerizing sight upon entering the hotel. Loopy Doopy, measuring a monumental 100 x 80 feet, was pro­duced in sections in an enormous warehouse at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The panels were then packed, shipped, and carefully installed inside the hotel atrium. This wall drawing took more than 3,000 hours to create, required more than 100 gallons of paint, and was fabricated over four months in a 20,000-square-foot studio with more than 50 individuals working on the project. Loopy Doopy is the largest wall drawing made by LeWitt, who died in 2007.

Pat Steir Topsy Turvy, 2012 Latex, Lascaux Aquacryl and pencil, 23′ x 48’10″

Pat Steir’s expansive wall painting, Topsy Turvy, is located at the top of the grand staircase just outside the Gallery Ballroom. Created entirely on site,Topsy Turvy features ribbons of gem-toned paint flowing down from the top of the wall and up from the bottom over a subtle grid in a yellow background. Playful yet nuanced, the work captures Steir’s inimitable facility for bold, expressive color, highlighting the importance of line and mark in her paintings.

Imi Knoebel
Polygon (Menninge), 1998
(realized 2012)
Mennige paint, dimensions TK

Internationally renowned German artist Imi Knoe­bel’s painting Polygon (Mennige), located at the Conrad New York’s East entry, welcomes guests with a vivid burst of red cartwheeling across the wall. Blending minimalist austerity and high-spirited exuberance, Polygon (Mennige) suggests a collection of rectangular forms in motion. Unlike any shape one might actually find in nature, Knoebel’s unusual geometry comprises fourteen uneven sides and unpredictable angles.

Mary Heilmann
Arbor, Earth and Air, Africa and The Sound of Water

Mary Heilmann’s prints—Arbor, Earth and Air, Africa and The Sound of White Water—can be found in guest rooms throughout the Conrad New York. These works portray the lyrical beauty of her folk-inspired abstractions and are prime examples of her bold brushwork and fine sense of geometry. Blending the influence of the craft movement with such modern masters as Piet Mondrian and Ellsworth Kelly, Heilmann creates minimal abstractions filled with bursts of color.

Elizabeth Peyton
Jackie O. and John F. Kennedy, Jr.
Prince William and Prince Harry
A Glamorized portrait of a close friend

Renowned artist Elizabeth Peyton’s ( # TBC) prints, located in various guestrooms throughout the Conrad New York, feature her interpreta­tions of recognizable celebrities—Prince William, Prince Harry, Jackie O., and John F. Kennedy, Jr.—and a glamorized portrait of a close friend. Recalling Andy Warhol’s fascination with fame and popular culture, as well as David Hockney’s figura­tive paintings of close friends, Peyton’s works are rendered in her own distinct gestural style.

Sara Sosnowy

Sara Sosnowy

Sara Sosnowy, known for her elegantly minimal abstractions, created five untitled prints for the hotel’s guest rooms that strike a balance between the bold and the sublime. Reminis­cent of post-minimalist work by artists Eva Hesse and Yayoi Kusama, her works maintain a steady rhythm, appearing simultaneously casual in their delicate irregularity and also tenaciously formal in pattern and harmony.
