Don Joint at Francis Naumann

Really crazy, obsessive embroidered abstractions, some of which took months of hand labor are on display at Francis Naumann gallery uptown. The show is closing tomorrow! Don Joint is working with compositions referencing early modernism, but what strikes me is the inevitable "bitmap quality" of the threadwork, which somehow dominates the decorative aspects.

Don Joint, The Mocking of Christ, mercerized cotton on linen, 2007

Another , much more minimalist example of embroidery work: Cody Trepte, Why Are Numbers So Comfortable? , cross stitch binary, 2004 (from "The Infinite Fill" at Foxy Productions)

Bid on the opportunity to meet Jeff Koons and go on a private tour of his studio, led by the artist himself.

Michael Govan (LACMA Director) has also donated a private tour of the new Broad Museum at LACMA.

The auctions end on March 6, 2008.

Bid on the chance to talk with these gentlemen about their thoughts on the new Broad museum and art in general. The auctions benefit the Hereditary Disease Foundation
