Jefe aka Johnny Chiba gives credence to one Armory Show pier this year...
such is the life of a freelancer on the go go go!
click on thumbnails for larger pictures, the artist's name for personal website,
(where available), and the gallery logo for a link to online representation
"Little Manhattan" two-and-a-half ton marble
sculpture depicting the li'l ole island of manny hatty.
two years in the making between artist and workers... heavy!
3-dimensional figurines using 3-D printing technology,
scanned and manufactured from NY to Switzerland
whimsical, wonderful wall of Eisenman
mega-wall of bunny-esque comic art
an awesome untitled lizardly sculpture that I think
deserved a name. heads for feet, alreet.
a collage of skeletal fascination
there's a starman waiting in the sky... and the cave
these circular beauties deserve a close up
the wings of this stuffed queen seem to go either way,
as evidenced by Chiba animation, consisting of Armory
gallery picture, and online gallery depiction of same
from the full scale painting to the artist's book on display,
to the exhibition poster, I was enamoured by MA-ke's work,
art most intense
BERND + HILLA BECHER
photography = geometry
a collage of beauty in the
color and texture and delicacy
a great artist from China working in multiple mediums,
unfortunately not currently represented on the
Sean Kelly Gallery website...
but well-represented by the Shanghart Gallery link,
where we found these 2 excellent artworks, amongst others
the entire gallery was a bevy of pieces by the artist,
whose range from comic-al to serious belied a
profusive catalog of talent
these sculptures reminded me of something the serial murderer
from True Detective might conjure, from the mind of an
artist who very well may be a serial mystic
unfortunately, we could not find the gallery representing
Kiki Smith at The Armory Show, and whether this sculpture
overlooking her prints was hers as well.
i am woman!
interesting artist made gif animations of her artwork,
displayed on standing easels
we were initially introduced to Ms. Shishkin
c/o the great Zach Feuer Gallery
i loved how the painting was somehow made for the corner...
perhaps leading to a conceptual framing project
this "Folded Hat" was one of the smallest
Lichtenstein's I've ever seen, yet would
be proud to wear on my head...
"how to try and be OK with
the contemporary art market"
the wisdom of words?
DOUBLE FLY ART CENTER
this performance group of artists from China were perhaps the most
interesting part of the stodgy hi-value Armory Show, consisting of
a wall of trinkets you could buy or win, a very funny video of orgiastic
proportion, lottery tickets, their own money, and a closed booth
where all you could see were objects being thrown above the sealed walls
another art fair for reflection
and test presence
