… a fantasy memoir …

noted on 11/17/16:  The Secret Lives of Edward Gory is returning for a run at the Sheen Arts Center.  For more information and tickets for this current run, click here.

The Secret Lives of Edward Gorey – and Gorey was highly reclusive – moves us as if in free-form through Gorey’s life.  That’s just right – a perfect analogy for the sense of free association of Gorey’s drawings and writings.  What a wild thought!  one thinks encountering Gorey.  What crazy, touching juxtapositions!

Art Review | Cornelia Parker’s Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) | Metropolitan Museum Roof | Summer 2016

… they never promised us a “real” garden …

Cornelia Parker, Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), site specific installation on roof of Metropolitan Museum, summer 2016

When is a house not a house?  When it’s a Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) by Cornelia Parker, site specific installation for summer 2016, Roof Garden of the Metropolitan Museum

When I first saw photos of Cornelia Parker’s Transitional Object in a newspaper, I thought oh no, why do they have to stick an eyesore on the museum’s lovely roof garden.  When I went to see it actually I found that it’s an intriguing eyesore, not what I’d like best to see on the roof but it does get you thinking.
