Fridays @ The MoMA…
always manage to inspire me. I find myself sitting or walking around for hours, thinking and coming up with new ideas. Last week I went with a friend who is in town. Below are a few photos of my favorite work, which I’m sure will make there way into my next collection.
this reminded me of an M.C. Escher
i love when you see things like this.
The Spine (side note, I have scoliosis)
I’m not really a fan of Pollack, but I really liked this messy collage of things. There are ciggarettes, nails, and buttons in this piece.
Pieces like this always inspire me more than anything else. It feels much like a living, breathing thing, and trying to translate that into jewelry, poses a challenge that I love.
This caught my eye, because of it’s shape, and the light glowing from within, it also had a very textural feel that I liked.
Perception and perspective are funny things. Sometimes just words we use to describe things, but in this instance, you see yourself looking at the man, and you see him looking at the crowd, which is actually you. Interesting piece.
I had been to the MoMA the week before, without my camera, and I was bummed out. Who goes to the museum without a camera right? I was in the diamond district that day trying to pick up a piece for a friend, and it was late, and I just decided to walk a few blocks over to museum, and when I saw these paintings I knew I had to come back. So much color, so much life, I really like these. The artist info is below.
This was was of those beautiful tortured paintings about life, and struggle, and revolution.
Simple graphic pieces like this inspires me a lot. While I was at the MoMA, my friend and I would pass by a lot of things, and say “Is that art?” And I think it’s just one of those things, where you have to ask yourself, what you think of it, how it makes you feel, does it do something for you, you know?
By far one of my favorites. I stood and looked at this one for a long time.
This piece was huge, and so beautiful. Lots of detail, and the shades of grey and black were really dope.
