'Schnabel at Gagosian'. I am not sure what else I need to say. Jules must've got the memo re size week and he has contributed a couple of whoppers. Seem totally appropriate amongst the cavernous spaces in Gagosian's Chelsea bunker but I have a inkling they'd look a little too big for most domestic spaces.
I don't really have a lot to say about these massive works. I do like that he has confirmed some amateur psycho-pap I once read that said punters preferred bigger works to smaller, and those coloured red to others. So you are on to a winner with big red works, like 'Los Patos del Buen Retiro III' above. This 460 x 460 cm oil on velvet was probably my top pick. I didn't really love any of the works in particular but I do love the renaissance man that is Julian Schnabel. Art, sculpture, films (Basquait, Diving Bell & the Butterfly), furniture, interior design (he did the Gramercy Park Hotel where I took the Mrs before junior critic #1) and more. He does it. The below image is not his. It is the Commissioner from Dept of Buildings obviously. These signs are everywhere in NY and I love them. This is Gagosian's Chelsea branch. 389 persons? Can't they round that up to 390 or even 400? Points here.
