the armory show at the pier
I always enjoy walking through the books at the Armory. I always forget how overwhelming the experience is. Art, art, art, art. It took me a few years but I finally figured out how to navigate the place to make sure I see every booth. Some booths draw me in while others I just pass by. Here are a few highlights of the pieces that drew me in.
Friends in neon. Quite expensive but I do like it. Seasoned artist, Martin Creed at Hauser and Wirth
Don't Do. There were screenprintings that came in a series of 5. All of them were a little dark and a bit snarky. Thought this particular one was quite good but unfortunately all sold out. Untitled, New York.
I walked around the corner, saw this piece and fell in love. The piece is called Fred. The artist is Yuki Onodera at the Yossi Milo Gallery. A Japanese woman who lives in Paris. She has created these objects and then covered them with photos of places she has seen and then takes a photo of them. It took me about 30 seconds to make a decision to buy this. I can hardly wait to get this in my apartment.
This artist, Sebastiaan Bremer takes photos of when he was a child, reproduces them and then paints on top of them. This is one of a family vacation when they were children in Switzerland. Hales Gallery London.
Hoping to get to Pulse this weekend. Absolutely worth taking a stroll through the Armory Show this weekend. A once a year event that is always worth going to.
