I've been warming up to the idea of posting some stuff here. This is my living room setup, in no particular order. I have been collecting for a couple years now, but only really felt that things have come together over the past year. Audrey Kawasaki, either untitled or Sloth? Glenn Barr "Casa de Espana" CRG "Black Swan Breakdown", or as the wife calls it "Swany" Eric White "Encuentro" Jeff Soto "Flowers hanging over the gardens of Babylon" Joe Sorren sculpture "Corrina" Mark Ryden "Madonna & Karl" Pressure Printing Jeff Soto "Wild Overgrowth" Martin Wittfooth "Blind Curiosity" newest addition
OMG. I'm glad you decided to post. Those Sotos are amazing. The CRG is so nice. Always wanted the Sorren sculpt but always had other priorities... I'm sure this isn't all you have either! Great collection...
beautiful. just beautiful. (and "swany" makes me laugh

Thanks for the comments! Just like anyone Else's collection, each piece has it's own story around it. A lot of luck involved in getting most of them. My wife has her own name for a bunch of the paintings up in the house. I almost start calling them by those names too? And yes Sleepboy there's the rest of the house, but it's mostly smaller pieces & prints.
just awesome b! you have great taste. i think i'd be pretty comfortable in your living room with all that fantastic art on the walls.
glad to see that you got a corrina. its the first i've seen pictures of in someone's collection other than mine. do you find yourself adjusting the angle every now and again to get a slightly different view or is that just me?! ;D
i love that eric white piece so much, but you know what i really want to see - break out the pics of the fencer!! my of my fave paintings ever...
Thanks again, it's nice getting some feedback as this has been a passion of mine. BTW Highbrow, it certainly didn't happen overnight. I probably had my training wheels on longer than anyone here, as I collected prints for well over ten years before buying my first original. Also never having done any commission work with an artist, a lot of people on this Board seem to me to be doing things well ahead of me. Irsk I have been told by a couple other people that they passed on the Soto Flowers over Babylon piece. I think I probably went through the same thought process. Buy this now, or wait for the solo exhibit at Jonathan Levine? Sven, the wife & I were almost playing a game with the Corrina sculpture for the first couple of weeks we had it. I would turn it one way, and she would turn it another way reminding me it was a gift to her. In any event, it seems to be facing a different direction every couple of days. Here you go Sven a shot of the Viner "Fencer", but you are way ahead of the tour as this is in the back of the house. lol
Thanks everybody! My favorite room of the house, which also has the only other stuff that I had ever bought in the past that I would consider art too (the couch, FLW coffee table, & set of cab chairs). Love how all the pieces fit and think its funny the Madonna & Kart ended up fitting in the little nook. If it was any bigger, it would not have fit (and I certainly wouldn't have bought it).
Found some prior shots of the dining room, which is now acting as a closet of sorts for my wife & I till we figure what to do with all our stuff.
