I like Laurie Frick’s sculptural work – reminds me of Australian artist Rosalie Gascoigne…
We have an old family friend staying with us for a few days. Joy just introduced me to the work of Li Chen – beautiful, joyous, sumptuous pieces (above). His work reminded me of Alma Allen’s more abstract sculpture (below) and Botero’s luscious bronzes.
This is just a truly cool pic. I’ve already blogged about Xavier Veilhan’s exhibition at Versaille. Turns out he has done a lot of interesting installations. This is a shot of Velihan’s Le Grande Mobile at the Allen Lambert Galleria in Toronto. The photo is stitched together using photoshop. Via Daily Dose of Imagery.
I got invitations to two Rebecca Niederlander shows that open this Saturday – one at Phantom Galleries (412 Wilshire Boulevard) and the other at Jancar Gallery (961 Chung King Road, Los Angeles). Her work is beautiful – well worth checking out.
Another artist that caught my eye is Melinda le Guay. Her lovely netted pieces were exhibited at Brenda May’s Gallery. She knits enameled copper wire into shift-like dresses. A dozen or so lined the wall and they looked like beautiful whispy sea creatures. The kind of exquisite flotsam and jetsam you might find on a clear morning after a storm. These pieces I could imagine living with…for more wire work have a look at my guest blog post on Design*Sponge last week. I devoted my Wednesday post to all things wiry.
I have to include Ellen Weiske in my round up. She works mainly with wire and created some of the wittiest work I saw on Deer Isle. Her wire framed plates (above) and quilt look like intricate drawings and throw the most beautiful shadows. I wanted to take it home with me but it was far too large and fragile for my suitcase.
These wire sculptures are by American artist Ruth Asawa. She’s represented by Rena Bransten in San Francisco. Incredible work.
I got an email from LA-based artist Rebecca Niederlander asking if she could use one of my images on her site. I’m so glad she emailed me. I saw her wire sculpture suspended in the kitchen of a home on one of the Dwell house tours and fell in love with it. I kept meaning to write about her…and now I’ve been reminded. Her work – mostly in wire – is very beautiful. Here are just a few pieces…she’s well worth watching.
