Random Art Finds & This Week’s Favs

We are having an event at our gallery this evening so I’m stuck here until 8pm. I actually work for an art dealer but we have a rather large gallery space and on occasion, we lend it for events. It is not in any way art related but I’m sure the boss thinks he’ll get some leads as we were told “high rollers” would be mingling.

I wish I could say I was excited to be here. I am not.

So, I’ll likely be doing a bit of blogging for a while.

I randomly came across this artist today Hye Rim Lee via this web site.

Look like anything in particular to you? If you guessed a collection of glass dildos …you were right. He has a bit of a Murakami vibe, if you ask me …but probably much less $$$ …and he’s not looking overly original either considering this and this and this.

I do like the colors though …and if I had to choose, I think I’d take the little pink bunny. We all know The Rabbit takes the cake but maybe this little guy could help out too.

Other Random Art Finds {that I fancy}

Yan Pei-Ming, “Bruce Lee” 2007

William Wood “Untitled I” 1998

Tom McKinley
{actually this work is on its way to our gallery}
…and is freshly painted so it is nameless, but I really love it.

Andy Warhol “Electric Chair #76”
I must admit, this work is here as well but I just LOVE it!
I had to photograph it yesterday and color correct it and I fell. in. love.

Melanie Pullen “Phones”
I LOVE Melanie Pullen’s “High Fashion Crime Scenes” series
They are TO DIE FOR {pun intended!}
We actually had this in the gallery at one point but it was returned. We kept two others but this was the bets! They are gigantic in person and phenomenal

Here’s another.
Oh, you should really check her site {link above} They are all so dreamy!

Cindy Sherman “Untitled Film Still #13” 1978

We get all the Sotheby’s and Christie’s {and various other} auction catalogues delivered regularly at the gallery and I love thumbing through them. The black and white above was on the cover of a recent Christie’s catalogue and sold for $902,500…wow!

Jeff Koons “Puppy” 1998
I would LOVE to get my hands on one of these!

Well, the madness is beginning. Must go and be social. Ugh!

    I’ve always liked Cindy Sherman when I was in art school. My favorite was Sherrie Levine. I did my thesis on her.

    Totally jealous of you getting to work in a gallery.

    LOL.. I’d take the pink bunny, too.

    I’m intrigued by Tom McKinley’s painting. Very pretty. I also love “Phones” by Melanie Pullen. How wonderful to be surrounded by those incredible art everyday!?

    Love the Melanie Pullen prints…just so intriguing.

    On the Rock Band topic…we have Playstation 3; it has the ability to play online with other users but since you have Xbox can you play PS3 users…that would be really cool to rock out together! I loved your Whatcha Want performance 🙂 And your hubby is quite good on the guitar/bass.
