Let’s be honest, I didn’t get to see much art while I was at Art Basel. However I have very focused and responsible friends that held my hand to make sure I made it to the De La Cruz Collection. The Mercedes S 600 with a driver didn’t hurt tho.
Nate Lowman was the star of this years Basel. The bullet hole is called pink escalade, I’m sur eyou are familiar with it. The multicolor pice is called swiss cheese. It is made from the drop cloth in Lowman’s studio. Complete with dirt, footprints, stains and spills… talk about low brow!
Dan Colen who used to share a studio space with Nate Lowman was placed directly next to him. That must be cool, hanging out next to your friend. left: It’s the End of the World as We Know It, 2012. right: Moon/Womb, 2011.
Dion G, not very impressed.
Put you hands up for Rudolf Stingel! (he prob has never heard that) Both of these are Untitled, however I imagine he would love some Sneaker Pimps clothing circa 2006!
Buying, selling trading art is the new securities market. I call this piece Laurence arguing about the size of the Chuck Close piece he just commissioned.
Free Félix González prints. One says; “No place better than here.” The other says; “Some place better than here.” Gonna look SICK in the children’s gym in my house.
It’s a metaphor.
