Le Chat Prototype Sneak Peek

Say Bonjour to 'Le Chat'. This vinyl version of my painting 'Le Chat Domestique' is handsomely sculpted by Julie B and will be produced by Cherry Vinyl, a new collaborative brand of Lulubell Toys and Pretty in Plastic. You will hear more about this catty cutie soon!

La La Land

Los Angeles, July 30, Merry Karnowsky Gallery, the opening night of my last exhibition 'Big Thousands of Golden Flowers'; Merry's team working hard and concentrated to organize the last things before the doors open. I arrived a little later to the opening party than calculated -not used to the widespreadness of LA- and I quickly wolf down a Snickers bar. Soon the room is filled with people and my hasty meal, jet-leg and work mode mind set are fading to the background and the enthusiasm of all who I meet pick me up and waltz me through the evening. Hours pass in a roaring rush and after the wave of visitors have left -and I happily munched on a pizza slice- I can look back on a wonderful opening night. So to everybody who came to see the show -visitor's, collector's, fellow artists- a big THANKS!

Above and below, a few photo's of my visit for you to enjoy.

Extra special thanks go out to Merry and the MKG team, Kirsten, Julie B, Rick, Nathan, Jane and Phill.

No, I don't have many photo's of the opening night! But you can find some more on the MK website. Panorama shots from top to bottom; gallery before the opening and gallery during the opening -my camera goes all Matrix when taking a panorama shot of movement!- my Pretty in Plastic visit (of which I will tell you more about in the future), and two shots of Santa Monica Beach, baby.
