Trenton Doyle Hancock -- AOD

Attending this year's Whitney Biennial left me nostalgic for better art shown at the previous exhibit 2 yrs prior. This leads me to today's artist -- it seems to me a lot has progressed and matured in his art over the past few years. So to that, I say cheers. See more here

From the NY Times: "Phoebe Washburn, known for transforming large-scale installations into self-contained architectural environments, has created an ecosystem, planting paper-whites in brightly colored golf balls immersed in 60 gallons of circulating Gatorade." Her piece in the 2008 Whitney Biennial was a stand-out/knock-out success. Made me want to plant flowers and get fully hydrated.
