artist alert!!

my good buddy, robin, associate director of art st. louis, an organization near and dear to my heart, sent me a card the other day. robin's cards are something to behold, so much so, that i've dedicated nearly an entire wall of my studio to them...

but, yesterday i got this...



i gasped.......and then i gasped again. this is the work of sarah frost. my first thought was.....louise nevelson is born again and she is on CRACK.

i'm sorry i can't provide a website, because, sadly sarah doesn't have one (YET)....but, she should.

I could look at that image for HOURS. We should blow it up and make it a poster.

for some reason i find that incredibily ...cute. And I can't make out if it's all stuck to a wall and just photographed or if the photographer hang on the cealing and took the picture. Cute though! Like that one German artist that had rooms full of white geomatric shapes and other stuff. Merzbau or something?

it looks like the artist assembled these objects against a wall, although it COULD be free standing, i'm not sure. all i know is, it sure captured my attention and i can't stop looking at it. ;D

yeah so true! Have you seen merzbau? Here: http://www.literaturatlas.de/~lb2/images/merzbau.jpg that's what it reminded me of. Kurt Zwitters made that i believe.

"louise nevelson is born again and she is on CRACK"

Frost-ing on the cake
darlin' b,
next time I see sweet Sarah, I'll ask what her plans are for a website & find out if she shot digis of her grad show @Mad Art (that's what the postcard was promoting). She actually gave us a large version of that fabbytrash image for this year's Grape Arts, so I know she can make another. I will do my best to secure one for you. In fact, I'm going to write her right now.
much love, R in STL
