Bridget Riley’s New Show

Posted on | November 28, 2007 | Comments Off on Bridget Riley’s New Show

Bridget Riley is one of my favorite painters. I am in love with her awesome color and all over patterns. Riley was the first painter I ever related to in style and method. Riley is cmeticulous about her designs mapping out each piece in very systematic way. In the 1960’s she received a good bit of press and recognition for her series of black and white op art paintings. For me I have always enjoyed her later work as she moves away from op art and toward a more colorful patterning.

Check out Riley’s newest show at Pace Wilderstein, Recent Paintings and Gouaches, on display till January 5, 2008 at Wilderstein’s 57th Street and Chelsea galleries. The galleries will showcase 12 oil on linen paintings, Riley’s largest works to date, and 8 gouaches from 2004-2007 as well as Wall Painting 1 (2007), a graphite and acrylic work that measures approximately 8 x 16 feet.

J.Crew Goes Festive Vintage

Posted on | November 28, 2007 | Comments Off on J.Crew Goes Festive Vintage

J.Crew has totally stepped it up a notch in the accessory department. Honestly, I never took a second look at their accessories they always felt like an after thought. This season is filled with bright babbles infused with a little classic glam girl. I have been wearing the stripe bangle layered with a yellow bangle for months. The blue beads have been a total hit. Looks great paired with a contrasting color like red or orange. Seriously, snag these up, you will be wearing them for years.

From top left: Cabochon bauble bracelet, $80 . Hand-painted enamel carousel ring, $75. 1/2″ harlequin-stripe enamel bangle, $40. Bauble cascade necklace, $135.
