NYC artist Orly Genger created this unique public artwork by surrounding a city garden with mounds of nautical rope. The usually weather beaten rope was given a new lease of life after the artist dyed the ropes in huge vats to create these eye-catching results.

The huge ropes now surround the gardens in bold primary colors, like red, blue and yellow, that stand out against the natural tones in these public parks. The breathtaking installation is aptly entitled: 'Red, Yellow and Blue' and will be on display in Madison Square Park for New Yorkers to enjoy until September.

The maritime inspired piece aims to bring elements of the coastline and sea to this urban neighborhood.
