I Want Art

auction.jpg I’m meeting my friend Marianne at an auction to benefit Aperture in a couple of hours. I have no money to bid, alas, but if I did I would bid on this photograph by Walter Martin and Paloma Mu’oz. Isn’t it wonderful and sad?

Look at their work! I’m embarrassed to admit that I never heard of them, which doesn’t say anything about them, of course. There was a time when I used to go to galleries all the time, but it’s been years and years. Now I only go from time-to-time. Oh God, I’m going through their recent works. They are stunning.

Okay, now I not only want a husband I want a rich husband who will buy me art.


(I mean I would love an art-giving husband, but it’s not a requirement.)

  1. Aren’t they amazing?? You think they’re going to be sweet, and some are, but they are mostly sad and horrifying. Wisconsin Death Trip in a snowglobe.
