DELANEY ALLEN,   2.1 (Documentation of Landscape)   , 2016, archival pigment print, 30 x 20" 

DELANEY ALLEN, 2.1 (Documentation of Landscape), 2016, archival pigment print, 30 x 20" 

This is one of my favorite pieces of Delaney's because it is simultaneously so simple and so complex; I love the bright light in the foreground contrasted with the deep blues and shadows of the back. It is calm while maintaing the eerie and fantastical nature of Delaney's work.

My go-to carry all tote that packs a punch. A perfect statement piece with some pretty empowering text on the front. We are nothing without feminist art! 

Maggie Nelson,  Bluets , Wave Books, 2009

Maggie Nelson, Bluets, Wave Books, 2009

"I have enjoyed telling people that I am writing a book about blue without actually doing it." 

I'm on a roll here with blues and gender and Maggie Nelson's Bluets combines the best of both worlds. For me, this is one of those books that I picked up once and will carry with me for the rest of my life and am so happy we carry it in our shop. A must read.

WILLIAM MATHESON, Afternoon, 2015, oil, acrylic, and dye on canvas, 26 x 18”

I've grown so fond of this new painting by William Matheson. I was initially surprised by the palette but the unexpected camo-like background and that pointy nose/mask have completely won me over. Or was it the boob?!

St Eloy's fall line has arrived and I especially love all the bronze pieces, this little bracelet in particular. Plus it's named after one of the basaltic plains on the Moon, how cool is that?

 

Akhmatova  Poems , Everyman's Library Pocket Poets

Akhmatova Poems, Everyman's Library Pocket Poets

He loved three things alone:
White peacocks, evensong,
Old maps of America.

He hated children crying,
And raspberry jam with his tea,
And womanish hysteria.

… And he had married me.

1911

Need I say more?
