It appears that the economy is shaking the art world. Artist Thomas Allen is cutting back on his art supply costs--literally. His tools? A razor blade and an old book. Allen's new work, which is being featured at the Foley Gallery in New York City, is a series of pop-up images derived from various vintage books.
My question is this: Did Allen use the Harlequins because of the interesting imagery or because they were the only ones he could bear to hack up? Just a thought.
Either way, this spin on vintage meets modern and pin-up meets pop-up is right up my artistic alley.
