Silk Crepe Scarf
Untitled

Item # CC001-SL99
Dye silk crepe

Price: $200 each

Sol LeWitt was a painter, sculptor, draftsman, printmaker and orgintaor of wall drawings well known throughout the United States, Europe, South America, Japan and Australia.

This beautifully crafted scarf relates to his wall paintings and famous grids. As those structures hang on the wall, fit into the corner or "hold the floor," the scarf as folded or draped sets kinetic passage in motion for the viewer. This image is named loopy doopy as is from the late 90's wall work series.

The artist was born in Connecticut, studied at Syracuse University and Cartoonists and Illustrators School (later known as the The School of Visual Arts). He worked as a graphic artist for the architect I.M. Pei before establishing his own reputation as an important artist in the mid sixties. Dry clean only.


100% Silk Scarf
I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art
1998
Item No. CC001W-JB98
silk dye
36" x 36"

Price: $200 each

John Baldessari and Cirrus have produced a beautiful 36" square, 100% silk crepe scarf inspired by John Baldessari's famous print from 1971. The velvet black letters are offset by a luxurious pearl white background and bordered with handrolled hems. The artist comments about this seminal project: "I WILL NOT MAKE ANY MORE BORING ART was my response to Nova Scotia College of Art and Design to do an exhibition there, which took place from April 1- April 10, 1971. As there wasn't enough money for me to travel to Novia Scotia I proposed that the students voluntarily write, "I will not make any more boring art" on the walls of the gallery, like punishment. To my surprise they covered the walls."

Baldessari has made an indelible mark on the character of contemporary art and thought. His works have been concerned particularly with the interplay between verbal and visual ideas. Both his use of text and his appreciation for a useable "ready-made" product is based in the Duchampian arena of conceptual art. He was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2009 Venice Biennale. His major retrospectives have been presented by the Tate Modern and LACMA. Dry clean only.
