I think it's just the image at the time they made the flier as they've both been working on new pieces for this show. Phil has been down in Costa Mesa in RVCA's warehouse for past month almost I've heard working on new stuff. Barry's just a machine and always creating, so I'm sure he'll bring out some of his recuring props, but looking forward to a new batch of works from him as well hopefully.
The money comments are not negative, he obviously has funds, and there's nothing at all wrong with that. By no means implying they are in it for the money since they seem to be in it to elevate things which is awesome, thus the high end venue and the more museum like exhibition lengths. Seem to be in it for the right reasons which is refreshing. Anxious to see what their schedule will look like, as this can only help take the scene here in LA to another level, and that's good for all of us in the scene out here.
I was there at the preview too. both Barry and Phil did really awesome job!! these pics don't show what it is really like. this is the art show that you don't want to absolutely miss.
I don't know if you noticed or not,but found a few barry's signature hidden pieces here and there...
this show looks like a museum event. very impressive works from both artists. the gallery looks stunning too. i wondered if if had left any pieces about - did you find any yourself tarone? lets see pics if you did
