One of my current favorite shows right now is Janaina Tschape at Sikkema Jenkins & Co.
I also cannot help but look at this work at right and see an instantaneous recognition of the tentacles of jellyfish or sea anemonies reaching out through the kelp gardens.
The show will be up through June 23rd at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., 530 West 22nd Street.

Are those hands clasped together in defiance, or celebration??
These terra-cotta warriors will not be buried in hiding for a millenia with an emperor, but most likely held in vast art storage facilities as the $ value continues to expand.

All the cutesy "Elliefart" Post-Its in the world can't add up to the power of this single work.
I look at this and I think of the wall as the "establishment", and the artists' breaking down of barriers (what little there are left).
