Pulse Art Fair, NYC

Lots of art in NY this past weekend.  I stopped by Pulse before going out to dinner on Friday night.   The show was really good.  Not a lot of galleries but just enough so that it wasn’t too tight.  A nice mix.

Here are my highlights.  Stephen Nelson at Man & Eve from London.  There was just something about this piece I liked.  He usually does mostly sculpture but the smattering of color through out just drew me in.

Kind of loved this horse from the Torch gallery in Amsterdam

I love this kind of work.  Not sure where I would put it but I love the sculpture and the humor in this.  This is called Brighton Beach Bench by Will Kurtz, Mike Weiss Gallery NYC.

Sorry I did not buy a Vik Muniz piece years ago when the prices were lower.  His work is unique and brilliant.  Rena Branstan Gallery, San Francisco

This made me laugh.  I have seen the work from David Kramer before and have been drawn to the humor.  Freight + Volume, NYC. 

I might have to go back and get this piece.  When I was a kid I read the Lonely Doll books by Dare Wright.  I loved them.  Then I read the autobiography on Dare Wright a few years ago and I had a totally different take on Edith and the Bear.  Not surprising.  Fred Torres Collaboration NYC.

I saw something similar to this when I was in Cape Town this past October.  Small butterflies pinned up and then formed into a globe  Different.  Paul Villinski is the artist showing at Morgan Lehman, NYC.

These were so wacky that I had to take a picture.  Embroidered xray by Matthew Cox at Pentimenti.

I saw this artists work at the Pier a month ago.  Chiharu Shiota.  This is from Galeria Nieves Fernandez in Madrid.  I had seen this work from a gallery out of Paris.

Small and different than the bigger Freize fair.  I am glad I swung by.  I tried to get to NADA but never got there over the weekend.  Alas…but there is always next time.
