Pulse Art Fair

The Pulse Art Fair was quite good. See below some highlights of the show.

At P.P. O.W. Gallery booth they were some great pieces.
The work of Julie Hefferman, Carolee Schneemann and Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz were ARTmostfierce favorites.

JULIE HEFFERNAN Self Portrait as Slow Growth, 2008oil on canvas, 86 x 56 inches

CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN Nude on Tracks1975/2005, 1 of sequence of 5, archival Giclee print on Hahn rag with pigmented ink, 18 x 26 inches

WALTER MARTIN & PALOMA MUÑOZ Blindness , 2007c-print35 x 69 inches

I really liked the elegant chandelier that artist and old friend of mine Yeni Mao was commissioned to create for the Pulse VIP lounge. In my opinion it was quite beautiful. Yeni also has some affordable pieces in limited editions available at Art Ware Editions. See link below for more info.

At the Schroeder Romero Gallery booth the photographs of Bobby Neal Adams were not to be missed due to their size and visual effect. The airplane images on the air at different locations explore its relation with the environment and surroundings below. They have a dramatic effect and gives the urge to hop in a plane and disappear! Quite nice indeed!

Martin and Munoz are so incredible. We were lucky to secure "The Cliff," last year...easily one of their best works.

Recently we added "Mailboat," to our collection...which I believe is a masterpiece (I'm kinda gushing). I also think their snow globes are brilliant and magical.

Aperture has a book on their work scheduled for this fall.
