From "Levitated Mass" to Massive "Potato Chip" One of the big art gallery openings in New York this month features the monumental work of Michael Heizer. In this case, “monumental” is not an overstatement. A piece titled “Potato Chip” is created from an 18-ton slab of granite. Given the scale of his work, it makes sense that he generally works outside and this is Heizer’s first gallery show in nearly two decades. Heizer is also the artist behind LACMA’s “Levitated Mass,” the 340-ton boulder suspended at the museum which captured the public’s imagination and raised the age-old question: “What is art?”
