Ray Caesar's Santa Maria

Oh, the excitement! My friend Ray Caesar has a new piece of art on his website. No matter how hard he tried not to tell me about it, I've found it. Just as I always do. Weeee!

Chapeau, Ray! Your Santa Maria is the most precious little smoking marzipan saint I've ever seen and I believe that she and her glamorously decadent bedroom would make both Gregory Crewdson (bedside table, Kleenex®, négligé, pillows, tapestries, curtains) and David Lynch (toenails, heating and ventilation system) jealous.

Beloved reader: If you happen to be in Miami Beach before the 21st of January 2007, you can see Santa Maria and her friends in the We'll Make A Lover of You show at the ArtCenter South Florida.

Other featured artists include:

Van Arno, Shawn Barber, Gary Baseman, Andrew Brandou, Colin & Sas Christian, Dave Cooper, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Alex Gross, Kris Lewis, Travis Louie, Mars-1, Chris Mars, Scott Musgrove, Anne Faith Nicholls, Chris Ryniak, Todd Schorr, Jeff Soto, Miss Van, Jonathan Weiner, et al.

Now if that list of artists doesn't make you drool, I don't (want to) know what does.

(Thanks to Marisa DiMattia for the kind exhibition reminder.)

POINTLESS REMARKS THAT NO-ONE WILL READ ANYWAY

My house is a hospice for homeless and abandoned sock orphans.

I own precisely 19 single socks that don't have a matching partner. At the moment, I'm wearing my brother's grey size 12 sock on the left foot and Mr. D.'s very soft and delicate black cotton sock on the right foot.

It can't go on like this. Is there some kind of dating agency for single socks out there?

    I'm not far behind, with about one coven of partnerless socks. Perhaps we should launch a sock version of LibraryThing. MatchSock.com!

    Did you actually try that URL? "The continuing adventures of Suzy Snowflake"? WTF?

    Not only did it crash my browser, I also think that I'm gonna have one of my worst nightmares ever after watching the animation. :shock:

    Liebe Suzanne,
    ich habe soeben eine Website gefunden, die mich sehr fasziniert hat. Ich habe sofort an Dich denken müssen. Sie könnte Dir gefallen, wenn Du sie nicht sowieso schon kennst. Man muss ein bisschen Geduld haben, es dauert ein bisschen, bis man das Prinzip verstanden hat. Aber dann gibts sehr schöne Bilder. Viele Grüße!

    "Marzipan Saint"

    Eine herrliche Wortschöpfung.

    Hehe. Ich befürchte, es war eine rein pathologische Wortschöpfung: Ich litt nämlich grad an einem akuten Glukosemangel. :D

    Aber jetzt nicht aus Kreativität heraus aufhören Schokolade und Zuckerbohnen zu essen. ;)
