A very recent portrait of actor, musician, artist and my sister, Lulu Henle by artist Troy Wandzel.
Even though a super dirty dude with dreads, badly in need of a shower, had just breezed through Sasha Wolf Gallery at Miami Project, the booth looked substantial, open, felt inviting and proved very well planned. We remarked to Ms. Wolf that it had been very thoughtful of fair coordinators to provide inset flooring that created an arc that visually extended the "gallery" into the corridor. Like the open feeling of the space, Ms. Wolf thanked us warmly for complimenting the strong feng shui and even admitted that it took much maneuvering to find the right balance of the location of the work, her chair and that of her desk. On the tabletop, a sweet little vintage looking book sat just so at Ms. Wolf's left. I wondered if the gallerist planned on reading much (cool breeze that she is) or if the little piece of prose served as part of what we decided was the best installed of all that we saw.
Clearly, Ms. Wolf knows things other gallerists don't and I bet that book holds some of her secrets. Why didn't I take a photograph?
The "breath of fresh air" Sandoz Art Award for Art Basel Miami Beach (using this to represent the whole shebang - fairs, hotel installations, street, private, etc) 2015, enthusiastically goes to Sasha Wolf Gallery.
Old program - giving out awards - new name: Sandoz Art Awards. Like the Swiss Art Awards, I have 11 awards (or more) to bestow. While I don't offer winners 25,000 CHF and an artist residency in Mexico (!), the gallery, person or piece of art does have a portrait or drawing made in homage to the achievement.
An apology with bonus drawings from Hambone.
I drew Caryn Elaine Johnson (aka Whoopi Goldberg) on her 60th birthday this year. It's a big deal arriving at sixty.
All about driving these days(ies).
