Sergio Garcia’s tiny sculpture under a bell jar, cleverly entitled It’s Knot a Bike, was photographed at the Joseph Gross Gallery in the Chelsea Gallery District, where it was part of their Winter Group Show.

I had to stop and do a re-take when I spotted this little piggy — with wings, even! — on the wall in the stairwell to the downtown 4 or 5 Train at Lexington Avenue and 86th Street. You just never know what you’ll find in the Subway!

Pink Thing of The Day: Charles Ray’s Fall ’91

Many of Charles Ray’s best-known works are remakes of objects and people taken from the real world. Small but significant alterations to familiar situations give Ray’s practice a disquieting tension. Cloaked in simplicity, his often humorous creations comment on sculpture’s history, from its austere formal issues to its surreal psychological consequences. Ray imbues the tenets of classical sculpture, such as beauty, proportion, and facture, with a sly drama by inserting slippages, imperfections, or over–perfections in the physical makeup of his works. Fall ’91 (1992) depicts a woman  standing with her weight mostly on one foot in a common contrapposto pose. Modeled on a mannequin scaled to 8 feet tall, the sculpture looms large in a pink power suit that was fashionable in the fall of 1991. The result is both physically and psychologically daunting.

Photographed in The Broad Museum in Downtown Los Angeles.

A friend in Dublin, Ireland sent me the link to this mural of Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, which just went up in his neighborhood. I think it’s beautiful. You can read more about the mural at This Link!
