ARTmonday: Figures in the Landscape

I think we’ve already established that I’m enamored of images picturing women lying in a field, wading into water, curled up in a corner, or moodily attending to some undefined task. Today’s images are first and foremost, landscapes, then dotted with a single woman, man, or child, group, or crowd. The vistas range from grassy lawn to corn field and from rocky cliff to rubble. They all capture a mood; many peaceful or relaxed, at least one determined, another possible agitated, and others simply unbothered. I think the common thread here, is individuals carrying on with their lives, in outdoor settings. No more than that, than perhaps a certain aura they have, to me.

ARTmonday: The Armory Show 2013 (Part I)

Last week I got an email from The Armory Show announcing its partnership with Artsy. Oddly, I haven’t really explored the site before. I haven’t quite yet either (will revisit with a post on Artsy very soon), because I was preoccupied with browsing the 2400+ works that will be exhibited at The Armory Show 2013 in New York City, March 7 – 10.

The works are predominantly by established and iconic artists, though I also discovered a number I wasn’t personally familiar with, and a few that were even affordable. (Not all list prices, but there’s an “inquire” button if you’re so inclined.) I found 40 pieces on Artsy from The Armory Show that I really liked, keeping in mind a mix of medium and era. (My absolute favorite, love, love, love, is Gary Hume’s “The Beach.” It’s probably tens of thousands… afraid to check.)  Here’s the first batch. More later. I’ll also go back add in the medium of each. Off to an appointment now. . .
