More Fun From the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair


I made a couple of stops at the booth featuring "After van Eyck," 2006, by Devorah Sperber. The first thing I saw walking by are the 5,024 spools of thread, supported by stainless steel ball chain. To the naked eye the blurry pattern of an upside down face is apparent, but not clear, however when you look through the clear acrylic viewing sphere supported on a metal stand, which acts as your eye, the image is upside right and picture perfect. A very fun experience. Also featured was After Warhol - you can see that at this link to her website.

Someone from the George Billis Gallery walked by our booth and when he saw I Stop For Drops he came over and asked if it was a Karen Woods. If you take a look at her website you can see why he'd think so.

One of my favorite things about this event was the chance to meet and talk with other artists. One came by a couple of times and then mentioned that he liked skies and that he was a painter also. When he introduced himself and handed me his card I was delighted that I recognized his name, George Peebles, whose work I've admired for many years.

All of her work is amazing. I can only imagine how it comes about...maybe like yarn bombing in a highly organized way...paint by numbers without spills.....
