I can't wait to see what Sarah Sze comes up with for this years Venice Biennale. The experience of walking through that city is so much about discovery. I visited Venice three times during my semester in Italy and since I was constantly getting lost in the city, there was always something new around every corner. I love the intricacy and fragility of Sarah Sze's work, it's a perfect fit for the city of Venice.

Mary Katrantzou's designs remind me of three dimensional op art. The level of detailing in her prints is really impressive and the prints all relate to the body in such interesting ways. I also love the surprises that arise upon closer inspection, who knew spoons could look so chic. Basically I love them all and am willing to date a Russian oligarch on the side if that will get me one of these beautiful dresses.

Christopher Buckley's memoir was a much more interesting read as his parents were more fully fleshed out in the book and his relationship with them thought complicated was ultimately one of love and admiration. It was interesting to read about the shifts in the parent child relationship through the years, culminating in the child's responsibility for deciding the final resting place of the parent. Taking care of an aging parent isn't something I'd given much thought to prior to reading these so I found myself examining my own parental relationships and thinking about how I might act in similar situations.

I really love David Lucas's illustrations. We got his book 'Halibut Jackson' at the library sale and I thought it must have been about 40 years old since the illustrations reminded me of Andy Warhols early drawings from when he was a fashion illustrator. As it turns out the book was published eight years ago and he has about a dozen other books that I'd love to check out for the boys.

article about Cindy Sherman and her upcoming retrospective at MOMA.
"She works alone in her commodious floor-through studio that houses her costumes, props and equipment. Women’s wigs dot window sills, and there are shelves of wax doll’s heads and body parts from medical mannequins. It is here that she becomes the subject, the photographer, the director, the makeup artist and the costume stylist. “Whenever I tried to hire people or use friends or family, even if I paid them, I felt like I had to entertain them,” she said. “When I’m working alone, I can push myself. And I don’t complain.”

I used to feel a little weird looking at Style.com every week since everything in my closet definitely falls into the functional category (I'm talking to you maternity jeans). But I've decided it's just like looking at things in an art gallery, since no one actually buys things from galleries, right? Well at least not any I've shown work in. So I can just appreciate these images comfortable in the knowledge that I will never cross paths with the twenty people who actually have these rarefied items in their homes.

book for Christmas and I'm just getting around to reading it. Art essays are not something I can usually crack into during the day. The house has to be marginally peaceful in order for me to make it through any dense reading, which is to say that it doesn't happen very frequently. Thankfully, my mom is in town for the week helping with the kiddos so I've managed to sneak in a few minutes of quiet reading.
I love this description from the preface:

I just read an interview with the photographer Deborah Turbeville about her new book of fashion photography. Here was her response to a question about whether she has a particularly feminine point of view.
"There is a certain approach that women have. They do get into some kind of inner thing more than the male photographers do. It’s a more personal approach."
