Kate Gilmore, Blood From a Stone, 2009, single channel video (running time 8:09 minutes).

The Orlando Museum of Art (Facebook | Website) has just added three new works of art to their collection.

The pieces were created by three separate artists; Robin Rhode, a contemporary performance artist and photographer, Kate Gilmlre, a contemporary performance and video artist, and Frederick MacMonnies, a 19th Century American sculptor of the Beaux-Arts school.

Rhode is a South African artist who now lives in Berlin. His work, Scales, is representative of his work which alludes to science and math, and class disparities.

Kate Gilmore’s Blood From a Stone is a series of 75-pound cubes of solid plaster, reminiscent of 1960s Minimalism.
The Frederick MacMonnies’ statue is a monument to Revolutionary War figure, Nathan Hale.

The purchases were facilitated by the support of the Museum’s collecting groups; The Acquisition Trust, and the Friends of American Art.
