Art lovers savoring works by David Hominal

Art lovers savoring works by David Hominal

I took these snapshots at an opening a month ago at Gavin Brown enterprise .

“Europaïsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft” (please double check the gallery web site for the exact spelling) featured 3 European artists, among them, Ida Ekblad, an artist from Oslo.

Ida is pretty, and speaks with a slightly hoarse voice which reminds you that none only she’s a poet but also a sculptor, working with metal parts she gathered from junkyards. For me the sculptures evoke, in their colors, early Chamberlains from when the cars were painted in pale blues, off-whites, beiges and yellows (which looks great with rust).

Ida was wearing big headphones around her neck, so there was no pressure to engage her in conversation. If you said something uninteresting or dull she could just listen to her music.

Other works by Ida can also be seen at The Journal Gallery, in Brooklyn.

Fashion note: the denim jacket worn by this viewer works perfectly with the wool.

    Dear Artist,
    Delight and Joy to this new entry! waiting for those is a torture you administrate us, each new one is a venom tormenting the addictiveness of nous wannabehipsters.

    “Art lovers savouring works” speaks volumes. So funny.

    Superbe galerie, la laine correspond bien à mon nouveau mode de transport, le mouton Merinos.
