Speaking about Evolution (1911), Piet Mondrian wrote, “it’s not so bad, but I’m not there yet.” The three figures here represent the stages of evolution from the physical to the spiritual realm, as promoted in Theosophy. The triangular-shaped nipples and navels of the women, which point upwards and downwards, symbolize their spiritual and earthly orientation. The central figure embodies the fulfillment of the evolutionary process, to the spiritual realm. The flowers on the left panel are symbols of purity, while those on the right symbolize tragic suffering.
‘Getting Naked’ on the sofa means something entirely different when this unique piece of furniture is part of your living room. The Naked Ladies textile (the name referring to the depiction of the female form in the design) comes from Caroline Z. Hurley Studio. Featuring a repeating pattern of nude female figures in various poses, the whimsical print started out as one of Caroline’s paintings. The studio later collaborated with amazing screen printers in Rhode Island to translate her art onto fabric. Continue reading Eye On Design: Naked Ladies Textile-Upholstered Sofa By Caroline Z.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has possibly the broadest collection of art in the world; spanning more than 5000 years of objects from across the globe — from the first cities of the ancient world to works being created today. In my 30 years of living in NYC, I’ve visited the museum maybe a hundred times, and I’ve barely even begun to explore its hundreds of galleries. While a dozen new exhibits open at The Met each season, offering no shortage of incentive to plan a visit, what can be really exciting is to discover the hidden works in the museum’s collection that you might otherwise walk right by and never notice. That’s one reason why I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to attend a press preview of a new Met tour called Unhung Heroes of the Metropolitan, offered by the popular Shady Ladies Tours. As you might infer by the cheeky name, Unhung Heroes explores male members in paintings and sculptures across the museum, and it is all kinds of crazy fun!

Hentai-Inspired Art on Box Truck, Bushwick, Brooklyn (Art By MAST, All Photos By Gail)
Having lived in NYC for 30 years, it’s easy to be all jaded and imagine that I’ve seen just about everything. But writing this blog always affords me an opportunity to discover something interesting and fun. Getting to know the works of Japanese artists like Takashi Murakami and Mr. introduced me to Manga, a style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, but I wasn’t really hip to something called Hentai, which is, essentlally, Manga porn, until I was invited to a pretty fun party sponsored by Nutaku Dot Net. Nutaku is the world’s largest English gaming platform dedicated to 18+ titles — and Hentai games are their thing. I like to tell myself: It’s not about what you don’t know; it’s about what you don’t know that you don’t know. And I’m always ‘game’ for an enlightening experience!
