orange

Last weekend S picked out a new hat on our way to Christie's for the contemporary art auction preview. As soon as we arrived at the galleries we noticed that she coordinated with the Mark Rothko--so well, in fact, that she had to stand to one side so we could see the top of her head!

Then we noticed orange everywhere we looked.




She even coordinated with the noses of the dogs on stilts.

And the creepy tomato-head art. (Can you tell I'm not a fan of Paul McCarthy?)


No orange on this one, but it's one of my favorite pieces by Maurizio Catellan. The tiny elevators actually seem to work, much to the amusement of the two little girls in attendance.

  3. I am most puzzled by the tomato man's, um, nether regions.

  4. Camille, this is one of his more tame pieces. The others are far worse. Thus my ambivalence (if not outright distaste) for his work.

  8. Did you ever find out why there was so much orange? How funny that your daughter's hat matched the day's adventures.
