House of Voltaire arty farty favorites (NSFW)

I love art. You know – I spent the last half hour getting all arty farty, thinking of ways to start this blogpost with a deep and meaningful statement on the importance of art in modern life. But I decided to give up and just write what it all comes down to. I love art. And I wonder what kind of art I’d make if I were an artist – but that’s another story. On to House of Voltaire, the biennial temporary shop from London-based gallery Studio Voltaire. I went through their mind-blowing collection last night and thought I’d select ten of my favorite pieces for you.

1 – Ryan McGinley – Marmoset (LSD)

Let’s start this top ten with some nudity and a cute baby animal!

2 – Jeremy Deller – I blame the internet

I blame the internet – but for what?

3 – Craig & Karl for Waterford Crystal

Two of my favorite artists getting the crystal treatment – a steal at only 1750 pounds (I’d still buy it though if I had the money).

4- April Crichton and Nicolas Party

Do you think this limited edition sweatshirt with matching totebag would look good on a forty-five year old man? (please say yes)

5 – Anselm Reyle & LRRH – Silk Scarf

What a clever and simple idea to make a scarf with an aluminum foil print!

6 – Amanda Ross-Ho – Untitled Still Life

As they say in Dutch: HEBBON!

I did LSD once when I was young. Good times!

Insert pun about blanket statement here.

9 – Louise Gray – Beach Towel

I’ve been teaching collage composition for two years now. This beach towel just about breaks all my rules and I LOVE it.
