The Skull Chandelier by Kelly Lamb

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 19, 2012
After seeing the spectacle that was Damien Hirst's For the Love of God at the Tate Modern in London this past week, we sort of have a new appreciation for a good skull. Kelly Lamb's Skull Chandelier, although a tad gaudy and a bit of a tough sell for our dining room, we definitely like the composition of it.

We love how Ship of Fools describes Andy Rementer: "Andy Rementer is a creative person from USA." That is pretty much how it should be. Simple and to the point. It explains a lot to us, at least. Mr. Rementer just opened a solo show, Going Places, at The Hague gallery, featuring a series of gouache portraits, plants and typography work.
