i discovered madrid-based prieto’s work earlier this year at the affordable art fair in nyc. i fancy a 39×27 oversized print in a dressing area.

modern. chic. and a soupcon of eccentricity.

plus…you know i always love a good conversation starter.

a few scenes from the devastatingly intelligent, soulful, ‘kitchen table series’.

i saw the full set of twenty at the guggenheim a few years ago. a friend of mine recently saw them at the national gallery.

and if you’re lucky enough…see them. they are powerful and fierce.

choose one 36 x 48 inch image, install it in a modernist, masculine interior. one word: powerful. another word: chic.


re-blogging this post from 2013 in memory of mr. sidibe…


image from malian photographer malick sidibe. black and white photography is always a modern addition. gradated layers, grainy and sharp, bring the two dancers to life. looks as though they like each other. peas n carrots perfection.
