Gary Lang’s concentric circle paintings
Using bands of color, Gary Lang’s Painting draw you inward, pulling you closer and farther away from the center of each piece. It’s a visual exercise that seems to be inventing a whole new realm of perception.

Mike Amiri’s collection engages as much with the process as with the final product
During the New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013 season, fashion designer Mike Amiri collaborated with contemporary artist Wes Lang. Lang’s imagery translated into hand embroidery, hand painted outerwear, and abstract intarsia knitwear. Using Lang’s artwork as a basis, Amiri re-imagined his signature pieces.
In AMIRI Wes Lang, a book and documentary, Amiri and Lang delve into the process behind their collaboration. Their conversations evolved into a cross-disciplinary process that reverberated across the fashion and art worlds. The book will be published by Rizzoli in October. AMIRI Wes Lang includes photographs, curated text, and photographs of Lang’s artwork on garments. It will be available at select retailers in October.
