From the street it looks like any other rundown home in any other industrial town in the Midwest rust-belt. It isn’t really until you gain access to the front room that you begin to realize just how much truth there is to its occupants claim that he is a “madman”. Nearly every available square foot […]

Today’s Fashion: What Have You Done For Me Lately?

DSC_0180

Studio 54 was many things, drugs, sex, drugs, and a Mecca for fashionistas.  It was an era where art, music, and fashion took precedence to “the Man.”  There was a time where business, consumers, and the media had little affect on the industry.  Oh, how the times have changed. A panel of media and fashion […]

The Emmanuel Perrotin gallery opening was just one of the many amazing events last night. While there was certainly a lot happening in every gallery in Miami’s Design District, this event was well attended and arguably the coolest party to be seen at.   Celebrities mixing with heavy hitting artists, the event was reminiscent of hanging […]

CJ Reilly gets a Prosthetic leg thrown at him.

Robot's are not the same as computers (Final)

After seeing C.J. Reilly’s Drawing Stories from South America show during the Bushwick Open Studios and Art Fair (CJ Reilly- From one tip of Bushwick to South America) I became enamored with the sensitivity and humanity of his work. It is not often that one can capture the essence of their subjects without devolving into […]

Art. What is it? Why collect it? What’s it worth, what does it all mean and who’s a must have and who’s not? These are some of the questions often being mulled in the back of any prospective art collector, dealer and attendee at the many gallery openings which are a stone throw away as […]

Gilles and Louda Larrain- A Feasting of Art.

art-salon-1

People in this city talk persistently of art’s coming death. You’ve met them. You might have even thought it yourself, feared that all artists genuinely nourished by the taste of beauty rather than billion dollar champagne have lapsed into shallow commercialism or fled to Europe.

When befriending French aristocrats comes with a price tag. It’s a tale worthy of intrigue, jealousy, high society and how one goes about grooming that love of high society at either great reward or in this instance great peril to themselves. As the rich will tell you, “…you can come and try to befriend us […]
