this world is borrowed

Casper the Ghost bank, found object

I knew this show would be completely charming. I couldn't get down to Portland for the opening, but I've heard it's great. The pictures completely win me over. It's kitschy and nostalgic without feeling too intentional. Not surprisingly, between the furniture, the everyday kitchen items, notes, and pots, it all feels very domestic.

When you buy a piece, you select one found object and then a work by each artist. If I had some extra dollars, I'd buy the 3 pieces shown.

If you can't make it down, they've worked with Matthew Stadler to produce a book of the show ($90 via Pulliam Gallery).
