Pace Gallery in New York currently has an exhibit of stunning Hiroshi Sugimoto photographs on display entitled “Still Life.”   On display you will see seventeen large-format photographs from the artist’s ongoing Diorama series that date from 1976 to 2012.

These photographs are breathtaking so I recommend you see them in person as these photos do not do the originals justice.

Untitled by Tara Donovan 2014

The only thing uninteresting and boring about Tara Donovan’s 2014 solo show at Pace Gallery is the title of the show which is “Tara Donovan” and the title of the work you see above is called “Untitled.”  Sigh.  But if you take a closer look at “Untitled,” you will see that these gigantic sculptures are made out of index cards.  Yes.  There are literally several million 3x5s arranged in every which way in these untitled mountains!  Let’s take a closer look.

And lets zoom in a little more.

Wow!!!!  For someone who has tens of thousands of autographed 3x5s, I am VERY IMPRESSED!

In the second room, another excellent work, sadly also titled “Untitled” is on display.

This sculpture is made with thousands of acrylic rods and is even cooler to look at in person.

Come up with your own names for these excellent sculptures by visiting Tara Donovan at Pace Gallery (located at 534 West 25th Street) in Manhattan through June 28, 2014.

James Franco - New Film Stills

James Franco – New Film Stills

Love or hate James Franco, the one thing you can’t accuse him of is playing it safe.  James Franco is having a big month in New York in April 2014, as he is starring in a Broadway production of “Of Mice And Men,” (I saw it and it’s excellent, by the way) and at the Pace Gallery in Chelsea, he’s recreated an exhibit by Cindy Sherman (“Untitled Film Stills”) called “New Film Stills.”  Excuse the glare on these photos.  You gotta do the best you can when the sun is out on a lovely day and the art is encased in glass.

Recreating the exact poses Cindy Sherman did nearly 30 years ago, Franco is seen looking rather effeminate save for his facial hair, which makes this series of photos even better, according 2 G.

For those who think they’ve got James Franco all figured out, this exhibit will make them guess again and I really love that.  So many artists of all genres play it safe, and Franco for the sake of art (or perhaps even shock value) is not afraid to cross over the line, even if that finds him wearing a dress!  Go James!
