Building Ideas

One of the first things that Madeline and did do this week was "hit The Stand", which is the best bookstore the world. As I was saying surprises happen to you in New York and the surprise of this wonderful book about Madelon Vriesendorp found me. I had heard vague rumors of the woman who did the seminal drawings for Rem Koolhaus's Delirious New York, but the myth never was full until this little book appeared about Vriesendorp's work as an artist collector,collager,wife, mother and hostess. Quietly working away at making a seamless life-my theme! The book or catalogue for her show in London last January is a rare treat of surrealistic paintings, games and photos of her inner life of objects. She also has some cool friends.
