6 Second Art Show in Echo Park
Aaron Young Excitement is Just Around The Corner, 2008
In case you were ever wondering “Hyde and Dana seem to be such good friends, I wonder what they have in common”*
I present, exhibit A:
The wreckage of a chain link fence dipped in 24K gold. Expresses my sentiment EXACTLY for the next week in Art in LA- Just around the corner: Photo LA opens with David La Chapelle hosting a party, then Aaron Young (who is, himself, a work of art, btw) at Gagosian in Beverly Hills…not to mention the gift of Rachel Whiteread at the Hammer Museum! Thank you 2010.
*I know that yall weren’t wondering that, but I got excited when she posted this because it reinforces friendship. And that is important.
Last night was the Rachel Whiteread opening at Gagosian Beverly Hills. It was amazing. A lot of little precious items cast in chalky pastels and bronzes. Very different than the white/resin that I am used to seeing from her, but in a very good way. I am going to have to go back to really look at the pieces since I was just in and out last night since I had to be at a book signing on the other side of town.
*Side note: I scored such a sweet parking spot last night.
“Color confuses me. Every day when I get up, I have to think about it. I love color, but there are too man decisions to make. Am I an aesthete? Is color about necessity for me in my work— Or is it simply a product of what I am thinking about? I try not to dwell on it; if I did, I would only ever use black and white.”
