Rothkos and Rauschenbergs

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.”

Here are just a few of the fabulous pieces . . . visit his website for more.
