fltgc: pulse and armory show

blockbuster fltgc: pulse and armory show. talk about some art overload. first up pulse, which was in the same space where the mcq pop-up (rip alexander mcqueen). shar really enjoyed the scaled down art fair size compared to the likes of the armory. here is my laundry list of artists that caught my eye:
  • roberto molla at christina ray - shar met him, and he was a delight. it took him a day and half to draw the piece on the wall of the booth i-12. love, love, love. vote christina ray for the people's choice pulse award here.

next up was none other than the armory, which seemed more vibrant than last year. shar over heard some wheeling and dealing at multiple booths. art was for sale. who said there was a recession? there were established names like:

but some newbies to me were:

polly morgan at other criteria - balloons and taxidermy under glass

adam mcewen at nicole klagsbrun - i am curious yellow wins best use of color in a booth.

hans-peter feldman at simon lee - play of cut out and shadow really drew me in. reminds me of my banksy print of girl with red balloon.
birgir andresson at i8 - simplicity in pantone and text.
