  10. Not A Bubble

    By Hendrik Hansson, Follow the author on Twitter @hendrikhansson

    Recently, a sale of postwar and contemporary art at Christie’s New York generated a sum of $744 million, with many pieces selling substantially over their high estimate. Two Andy Warhol works sold for over $100 million, an incredible $30 million more than the high estimate; this included White Marilyn, 1962 a portrait completed shortly after the actresses death. Barnett Newman’s Black Fire I sold for $84.2 million, a record that almost doubled his previous best auction result.

    On a gloomy, overcast Wednesday afternoon in Cologne, the European art set descended upon the city for this year’s annual Art Cologne fair. As the focus of the German art scene shifts increasingly to Berlin and the European art scene has already shifted to Basel, the devolution of influence has moved decidedly away from the Rhineland. Nevertheless, a quick glance of the list of exhibitors reveals that the art powerhouses David Zwirner, Thaddaeus Ropac, and Hauser & Wirth are not yet ready to concede their presence.

  16. Aaron Curry: From Texas Kid to International Art Star

    Aaron Curry is one of those exceptional artists who has stayed true to his own unique style while taking his career and work to the next level. So, how did the soft-spoken Texas kid grow up to become an internationally acclaimed art star?

    Mid career artists are often confronted with the creative challenge of maintaining their own unique style while exploring new ideas and concepts to take their career to the next level. At 41, Aaron Curry is an artist who finds himself in the middle of this period. Contrary to some of his contemporaries, he’s defying expectations by continually building on his early success - by showing impressive consistency and exploring new materials and mediums within his distinctive style rather than trying to reinvent himself and his art. Curry’s outdoor exhibition in New York’s Lincoln Center plaza late last year gave the artist well-deserved public exposure that could potentially be viewed as a breakthrough moment. The 14 piece show featured Curry’s trademark brightly colored abstract figurative sculptures.
