A nod to rampant consumerism? Most definitely. Fine art, but of course. Tongue and cheek? I wouldn't take my art any other way.
The bronze sculptures from artist Jonathan Seliger tick off all my art pre-requisites and then some. How fabulous would these look in your boudoir? Or casually placed in an entry way like your shopping spoils? His work ranges from monumental on scale, to miniature for home.
I discovered Mr. Seliger's work in a recent Houzz tour (full tour here), picture below.
Husband was emailed, with the suggestion we begin to expand out fine art collection. He quickly countered....suggesting that we just put an old Hermes bag on a pedestal with a display case over it. Touche husband, touche.
