Bits + Pieces
My best friend was in town this past weekend hosting an incredibly beautiful sip ‘n’ see for Walton. As she stared at the blank wall in our kitchen, a light bulb went off- and she thought up the perfect piece to give my farm table area a little oomph. All I needed was another artist to drool over- thanks, Bex!
Have you seen his work? This is Christopher Rauschenberg, whose photography is that perfect juxtaposition of old-meets-new, at least his Flea series is. Can’t you just see framing one of these in this super-crusty gilded frame? Something almost crumbling . . .
Here’s what he says about this series:
“The Marché aux Puces at Saint-Ouen, an inch or two outside the city limits of Paris, is said to be the greatest flea market in the world. It is a museum of antiques, a P.T. Barnum sideshow, a life size dollhouse, a fever dream. This is a salute to the dealers of Saint-Ouen, who have created this stream-of-consciousness dream world in search of commerce but in search of poetry too. These photographs of this dream world somehow tell me things that I had an inkling of and that I hope to someday almost know.”
