This comfy looking upholstered chair, which bears the likeness of Hello Kitty, is currently displayed in the front window of the Hello Kitty / Sanrio Store in Times Square, on 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. If you look, not even that closely, you can see a reflection of the McDonalds just across the street.

Pink Thing Of The Day: Agnes Denes, The World of Thornes

The World of Thornes

Agnes Denes’ The World of Thornes (1968)  is a new acquisition at MOMA, and man is it ever rad! Made of electroplated plexiglass and synthetic polymer paint on a light box, the piece is challenging to  photograph because it is like trying to shoot a mirror straight on without getting yourself in the photo. These pictures turned out really good though. Love this.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Poodles in Art Exhibits!

Desire Obtain Cherish Pink Poodle

On a recent art crawl I spotted Pink Poodle sculptures in two different exhibits – crazy! The Poodle above is from the Desire Obtain Cherish exhibit at Unix Gallery and the Pink Poodle below was part of The Last Brucennial on Washington Street and West 13th. Full reviews of both exhibits posting any day now!

OK, just disregard the obvious fact that you could never, ever, wear these things outside on the street or in the yard, or anywhere that there might be moisture or dirt of any kind — they totally rule! Want!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Cast Resin Hermès Birkin Bag

Casting and plating the objects in unlikely materials — resin, plaster, platinum, silicone and copper — Shelter Serra strips them of their intended functionality. He highlights their underlying cultural symbolism and transforms branded products into objects of aesthetic contemplation, offering a new perspective on materialism in today’s society. Serra states, “refining an aesthetic and making beautiful objects, whether that be a dress, bag or sculpture is a celebration of pure creativity and personal vision.”

Talk about a picture that’s worth a thousand words! All that’s lacking is an awning to shade those pink chairs and I’d be good to go.
