Living With Art

Tuesday Under Ten: Sara Jones

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I have not been able to stop thinking about this new piece by Sara Jones. She combined a replicated, illegible family letter with weaving to explore ideas of indecipherable relics and lost stories. If you're interested in Sara's work, please get in touch!

Tuesday Under Ten: Adam Silverman

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I'm looking forward to this crazy week of art fairs in New York, and I've been busily browsing images for pieces I want to see in person for my clients. Tomorrow I start at the Armory Show Preview. Unlike some of the so-called satellite fairs, the Armory Show is "blue chip," and there isn't much for under $10,000, but I love this affordable table-top sculpture by Adam Silverman that will be exhibited by Philip Martin Gallery. Stay tuned for more images from all of the fairs!

Tuesday Under Ten: Ivan Krassoievitch

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: One of my dear friends just opened a gallery focused on Latin American Art on the Lower East Side called ProxyCo. Their inaugural show, curated by Daniel Garza Usabiaga, exhibits the work of six Contemporary Mexican artists. Everything in the show is priced under $10,000 -- including this gorgeous work by Ivan Krassoievitch. If you'd like to learn more, please get in touch!

Tuesday Under Ten: Ryan Nord Kitchen

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: I saved one last image from The Armory Show for this week's Tuesday Under Ten! I adore these petite canvases I saw in Nicelle Beauchene's booth by Ryan Nord Kitchen. I feel that if Monet had painted something yesterday, it would look pretty much like this! At 24 x 21 inches each, they're perfect in a row, stack, or grid -- I can picture so many configurations! If you would like to visit the gallery to see these in person, please let me know!

Favorite of the Week - Valentine's Day Edition: Gustav Klimt

Everyone loves flowers, particularly on February 14th! And, the hot lot in Sotheby's London Spring Impressionist sale is an amazing Gustav Klimt floral landscape that was first exhibited in 1908. The lush field includes poppies and zinnias in a triangular formation that recalls Klimt's perhaps better-known portrait paintings like The Kiss. It is estimated that the picture will sell in the $45 million range. If that's over your budget, please get in touch -- I have great ideas at many price points.  I love the idea of receiving a bouquet that lasts forever. Why not give your sweetheart art this year for Valentine's Day?
