I enjoyed it more than I thought I might have.

Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, the exhibition premiered in Montreal in June.

D really wanted to see this and I attended somewhat reluctantly. At the end of the exhibition my feelings mimiked yours. Worth seeing, IMO.

Tell D to fly here to Dallas. It will be near 70 next week, and I will pick her up at the airport, take her to the DMA, then off to a grand night of dinner and wine.

Which day works best for her? Cool

I'll participate. I think D would be quite stunning in a formal dress with each of us on each arm in our bespoken suits. Big Grin
So much for the concept of "starving artist" -

Painter and graffiti artist David Choe will reportedly be making $200 million for a mural he painted seven years ago. So did Choe paint the next Mona Lisa? Not exactly. In 2005, Choe was asked by then-Facebook President Sean Parker to create a mural for the first Facebook offices in Palo Alto. Choe was given two options: get paid thousands of dollars on the spot or take his payment in Facebook stock. Luckily for Choe, he picked the stock. Facebook filed the paperwork to go public yesterday, with an initial public offering of $5 billion. That means that a ton of people who are associated with the company are instant millionaires--including Choe, whose stocks are predicted to be worth hundreds of millions. Perhaps the most ironic facet of this story is that at the time Choe was painting the mural, he tells the New York Times, he thought Facebook was "pointless and ridiculous." People on Twitter may be hating a little bit, with one person saying that Choe is "about to be the world's most resented artist."

this has less to do with the art itself, more to do with an excellent business decision made at the time...well done Choe!

SD, I can see him thinking/saying this, yet opting for the stock. He is an interesting person. Wink

I first saw his work in Chelsea, and was blown away. He has taken Spain by storm, and Spain is as avant-garde as anyplace in the world today pertaining to art.
sorry, I thought I recalled bringing up these artists names before and you didn't care for them, or said "ahem"or something like that

maybe another chance for re-eval?

Are you a collector of this style of art?

Completely depends on the style of the work.

Vin, saw your email.

I personally would not frame if your new piece is anything like the Nightingale work, other than considering a museum only frame with proper negative space which should not even be noticed.

I'm looking forward to seeing your new work!
