interesting bits from NEXT

I got to take a brief tour around the fair today and I have to say, this is a very strong group of galleries showing interesting, provocative and beautiful work. The above image takes some explaining. Basically, two Firebirds face off against each other. They are attached to some pneumatic contraption that crashes them into one another, at some appointed hour. I have not witnessed the collision, but they were pristine at the start of the fair and now you can see their noses are bashed in a bit....Artist unknown. Can someone fill me in?

Colored pencil drawings by Michael Krueger at Steven Zevitas / OSP Gallery

Tiny sculptural collages by Sarah Bridgland at Man&Eve

Garson Baker Fine Art was showing work by Lucrecia Troncoso. Using ordinary paper towels, she makes tiny dresses out of them and also cuts out the flower design to create this fantastic piece that sparkles. I'm a sucker for cut out paper pieces and the shadows they cast.

Wow, love the paper towel dresses. Who woulda thunk? Now, what did I do with my scissors...
