Jonas Etter - Wallpieces (2009) - Burnt liquid sugar, maple and swimmingpool coating
“An object the volume of which consists of viscid burnt sugar, melted due to air moisture while being another work of art. Put on the wall immediately before the opening reception, the content slowly starts to flow out.”
Artists @libbybulloff and Stephen Robinson at last night’s opening reception for their show “Nightmares: Real & Imagined” (up through July). (at Sequential Art Gallery)
This show is hella sick and worth seeing if you’re downtown. One of a kind tintypes of intricate scenes of the dark and mysterious, set into shadow boxes that invite you to peer close to take in the delightful detail. Plus, there are lots of “seconds” that are gorgeous but not up to their crazy high standards of finished perfection.
Storybook gown constructed entirely out of recycled and discarded children’s Golden Books. Designer Ryan Novelline created the bodice from the golden spines of these classic children’s books and sewed together the skirt from their illustrated pages.
