Silvia Bächli: further.evolves. At Peter Freeman

I’ve been thinking about this show off and on for about the last two weeks. In my head it’s been one of those shows that is hard to pin down. At times it’s sublime and at others it’s almost too obvious. Either way I’ve been thinking about it since I spent some time with the […]

I’m less enthused about his place in the canon of the collectors market, but that is a completely different beast. So let’s do something that is tough to do when […]

Pearl Paint Closes Iconic NYC location

Julian Schnabel: Years ago, I was down there with my cousin’s wife Corky. She was wild — she wore makeup on her legs, and she had a streak in her hair like Yvonne De Carlo in The Munsters. She liked to paint. I had overalls on with just a T-shirt and looked like whatever. It was […]
