    For the record, I like that Snowman. It’s an absurd, humorous piece by Tony Tasset, and I think a lot of that would be lost at Scope, where earnestness plagues the art work. Also, this piece gets more absurd the more expensive it gets, so I think that’s another point for the context of the Armory.

      The snowman made me laugh b/c a) it was snowing outside the day I saw it, and b) pretty much everyone’s first sculpture is…a really bad snowman. Great post AFC, again.

    Oh, one other note: Those Nathalie Franks are a strange departure from her earlier work, which was representational. One of her more famous paintings:

    They aren’t all that good, but I like that one better than the Bacon ones. They feel a little too similar to Bacon imo, and I don’t think the integration of different surfaces worked that well on the larger work.

    I’m dying to know where you found that dolphin head sculpture.

      The Dolphin heads come from Romanian (and L.A.-based gallery) Nicodim. They’re probably the best thing to photo bomb.
