No promises, but with any luck this will let me post on a show at the Boston MFA tomorrow.
"What kind of an artist inspires a brilliant, oddball band like They Might Be Giants to write an art historical ditty in his honor? A brilliant, oddball artist like James Ensor, whose work, after more than 100 years, remains refreshingly strange and caustic." Leah Ollman on Ensor's show at the Getty.
"'I think Dale Chihuly is a pure original,' [Andrew] Page said. 'He has a tremendous sense of color and composition. And he has done a tremendous amount for the field. But this lawsuit may have been the worst thing he could have done.'" I tend to concur. This sounds ridiculous.
"I Dream of Cake was established by Shinmin Li. Li's masterful understanding of the personality of icing and the relationship between the ingredients used in her cakes enables her to design and create delectable masterpieces in signature style." (Waxy)
