All that glitters.
Every three to five years, the fashion world proudly proclaims, "metallics are the next hot trend!" You don't expect such exclamations from the art world. And yet . . .
On a recent trip to New York, metallic works, particularly those having something to do with footwear seemed to be everywhere. I suppose we could blame Jeff Koons for the situation what with all those luscious metallic balloon dogs and gazing balls and classically-inspired statuary.
I'll admit, I have no problem falling for the shining spectacles the art-world seems to be embracing. So here's a salute to this year's "hot trend" in the art world; metallic shoes.
