Along with everyone else, their brother, their Mom, their dog and their 50 closest friends, John and I went to the Armory show in NYC on Saturday. Boy, was it packed. Yikes! Before we headed to the Armory we actually went to Pulse first, mostly to check out my former studiomate Michelle Muldrow's work at the booth for Jen Bekman projects:

Delirium, 10" x 20", casein on clay panel, by Michelle Muldrow

Great stuff! Pulse was definitely more manageable size-wise than the Armory... and out of the eight thousand million gazillion booths at the Armory, I can easily narrow down my magical favorite moments to just a couple of pieces:
I got to see a painting by British artist Justin Mortimer, at the booth for Mihai Nicodim Gallery - amazing in person.

I can't believe I had never heard of this artist before, a Belgian artist named Michaël Borremans

This is only the second time I've seen a Kehinde Wiley in person...

And here are some other works in the show:

This one really spoke to me.
