$1500, Not For Sale

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

After the miserable gallery experience of a few weeks ago, the kids (Tommy, Ashley, Eric) and I sat at dinner and decided that we would get together and make our own assemblage art pieces. Ashley hosted and that weekend we got to it. There is, sadly, a lack of pubic hair on these pieces which I fear will limit their retail worth. I believe each piece is valued at $1500.00 American, but because they are now part of private collections, they're no longer available. We're also lacking individual artist statements regarding their works. Larger images available here.

What I forgot to tell you (and I can't believe this slipped my mind) was that the next morning when I woke up and began to tidy up, I found a pube stuck to some brandy residue on my kitchen counter top. I tried to take a picture, but it didn't come out.

I was both delighted and disgusted, which I think is the general public's reaction to about 60% of contemporary art.

I particularly love that you gave us an inset photo from "Don't Kill the Animal." You're such a professional.

Shlee: All I can say to that is "ew."

Aaron: I'd intended them all to have insets and artist's statements...but we here at OnTheCusp try to give value for readers. Kiss.
