Gallery Mondays: Béatrice Coron’s “Elegant”

NYFW SS17 is in full swing! It’s so much fun just walking around Manhattan during New York Fashion Week and seeing all the fashionable people walking about from venue to venue between shows.

I got off the A train at 104 Street last week on the way to my parents’ house and I remembered Béatrice Coron’s stainless steel cutout “Elegant” from the installation On the Right Track. It’s like the woman in the cutout just walked off the runway wearing that gorgeous gown.

Enjoy the rest of NYFW!

Gallery Mondays: Linda Ganjian’s ‘Home Sweet Home’

I didn’t get to see the station art at 111 Street on the A train line until last month. I had honestly forgotten that the station got renovated in general, so it was nice walking onto the platform and seeing Linda Ganjian’s Home Sweet Home stainless steel cut outs on the panels.

What I really love about this is the fact that the design doesn’t end with the house. It continues in a neat border pattern, almost as if the house were being framed.

Funny that I actually was headed home sweet home when I saw them…

Gallery Mondays: “Balloon Flower” by Jeff Koons

Now, I’m aware that flowers are the last thing that come to mind when it’s almost the third week into winter in NYC, but we’re making an exception for today’s Gallery Mondays.

I saw “Balloon Flower,” a balloon-shaped, stainless steel sculpture of a flower, while headed to the 9/11 Memorial Museum with a friend in December. Jeff Koons, the same artist behind the blue gazing ball on Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP album cover, created the sculpture.

The sculpture is part of Koons’ collection called Celebration. He has also created the same sculpture in yellow, blue, magenta, and orange. This red one sits in front of BMCC’s Fiterman Hall in the middle of a fountain.

See the blue version of “Balloon Flower” and the rest of the pieces from Celebration over on Jeff Koons’ website.
