These really are beautiful… also check out the exploding kitsch sculptures on his site, they’re funny like The Story of Ricky O.

I’ve only seen a few of Katharina Fritsch’s pieces in real life, but I like their strange plastic quality (it’s probably because they’re made out of plastic). Included: Child with poodles; Art dealer, monk, doctor; lifesize shell sculpture; Rat on man, etc.
Personally, I love the look of taxidermy, because I’m morbid, and appreciate all signs of future mortality. Unfortunately, I also have a little tiny bit of something called ethics and morals, and don’t completely approve of animals being killed for my viewing pleasure (that’s what Benihana is for). Here’s an alternative: felt animals on plaques. Why not?

The video is called “The Little Girl Giant”. Is it just me, or is there a little bit of a monster Lolita thing going on here?
Have you ever encountered a piece that was so good it made you mad?
Maybe not mad, but peeved…only because it was so simple, so clever, you hated to love it so much.
That’s how I feel about Carlee Fernandez. Her work is simple, sophisticated and so smart. Love.
Here’s a piece that was featured at the Phantom Sightings show at LACMA last year, Self Portrait: Portrait of My Father, Manuel Fernandez, 2006
Put teeth on things, I’ll like it. Is it that easy, you ask? Yes.
I’m a big fan of beards (on other people), and am continually tickled (get it?) by the amount of beards for sale on Etsy.com, or as I like to call it, “I can has cheeseburger necklace for onlies $27 plus $3 shipinz”. Whew. That was a sentence and a half. Let’s get into the beards.
