Art Fair Haul

The event I wait for all year is the art fair. And finally I bought something. It’s two pieces by artists whose work I’ve been dreaming about for a whole year, since I saw it last summer.

Obviously, the llama picture is not my choice. It’s the first piece in Klara’s art collection.

The orange and green tree pieces are made out of glass. I immediately chose the orange and Klara the green. Then the artist explained that they represent seasons of life. So its kind of fitting, if slightly disturbing, that Klara chose spring and I, autumn.

The flowers are from my husband and aren’t related to the art fair. He loved my favorite piece that’s at the bottom.

  1. A beautiful photo. Does your favorite piece represent something specific, or is it a mix of colors put on a ceramic / baked clay tile that should show something different to each looker? It creates a feeling of richness and abondance of something; the question of what remains. πŸ™‚

    1. (To Clarissa from El): “Does your favorite piece represent something specific, or should [it] show something different to each looker? It creates a feeling of richness and abondance of something; the question of what remains???”

      Hah! Not a work of art at all — it’s the artist’s luncheon salad with thousand-island dressing on the side that he bought at an overpriced restaurant just outside the fairgrounds. He wasn’t all that hungry, and he realized that the salad looked better than the canvas crap he’d painted, so he sprayed the food over with a fast-drying acrylic plastic coating, and hoped that it’d stay together long enough to fool some art-lover.

      I really can’t criticize Clarissa, however: Her overall photograph is beautifully, professionally composed — as always — from the yellow roses to to the lighting and the arrangement of all the art pieces, including the faux-art salad that makes me long for a fork.

    2. ” favorite piece represent something specific”

      If we’re gonna go all rorschach then to me it looks like a non-literal representation of a bouquet of flowers with the greener parts being leaves and the other colors the different flowers…
