In a stroke of great luck, I scored a pair tickets to the Mother-of-All- Art-Fairs, Frieze, and enjoyed a leisurely afternoon there on Saturday looking at lots of fun and provocative art! The fair has moved from its former remote location on Randal’s Island to The Shed in Hudson Yards — a fabulous modern space that allows the exhibitors to take over four entire floors! I’m sorry that I was so overcome by this hyper-realistic sculpture of a Corpse Flower that I neglected to note the name of the artist. I am sure that you’ll agree though that is quite impressive!

Do you love living in NYC, but occasionally like to take a Day Trip so you can get a new cultural perspective, or just go out in nature and explore? I love doing that, but sadly there must generally be an impetus that motivates me to make a plan. Planning (ugh!) is not my favorite thing, but it is sometimes necessary to achieve the goal of having a crazy fun new adventure. Recently, I took day trip with my art-loving pal Teddy outside the City via Metro-North. The impetus: The Haas Brothers have an exhibit at the Katonah Museum of Art!
Made primarily of blocks of wood, Marisol’s sculptors combine painting and figurative drawing with found objects — such as the sneakers and door in The Family (1962). “In the beginning,” the artist explained, “I drew on a piece of wood because I was going to carve it, and then I noticed that I didn’t have to carve it, because it looked as if it was carved already.”
David Bielander is an award-winning jewelry designer who translates simple, everyday objects into exceptional pieces of art. Here, he has transformed a set of baby pink ceramic plates and bowls into the petals of a stunning Pink Rose Sculpture, which I spotted at the 2021 Salon Art + Design!
Here’s what the full sculpture looks like alongside two similar rose plate sculptures. So gorgeous!
