cactus flower, 2010
i posted a bunch of photos from saturday's opening here....thanks to all those who came out!
chatted up erin, part owner during last night's NELA artwalk. the space was all a buzz after only opening days ago. i was particularly struck by the slick presentation of this maiden group show, with all the works finished with clean white frames and neatly organized, salon style. it's clear these owners come from commercial backgrounds, but the grittiness of their surroundings (highland park) makes for a nice contrast to this energetic bunch.
one thing's for sure, i'm looking forward to seeing 'this' gallery become 'all that.'

pipilotti rist, "Ever is all over"
easily one of my favorite video installations....i had the pleasure of experiencing this with my best friend at the st. louis art museum years ago. the luscious imagery, slow motion effects, and devilish antics of the main character not only pulled me in, but transported me into a faraway dreamlike trance. it's one of those rare pieces where i truly got "lost in the art."
