The spirit of the holidays often inspires us to see the world in a different light. We all bring our own history, experience and sensibility to the season.
Richard Anuszkiewicz – Annual Editions
Even in the VFA Gallery, some of the artworks take on a special flavor, like works of Richard Anuszkiewicz, which were made specifically for the holidays.
Jeff Koons’ steel Rabbit sculpture sold for more than $91 million at Christie’s in May, becoming the most expensive work by a living artist ever to sell at auction. Koon’s works are fantastic and fun, and we have a few of his best sculptures for sale at VFA.
The original 37-foot outdoor Split-Rocker sculpture is on view at Glenstone, the contemporary art museum in Maryland. Split-Rocker is composed of two halves: one based on a toy pony of one of Koons’ sons, the other based on a toy dinosaur.
A more manageable porcelain version of Split-Rocker and gift-wrapable balloon sculptures are available at VFA.
Salvador Dali – Celestial Elephant
Salvador Dali believed in the mystical, the spiritual and in science. He claimed to be a devout Catholic and an agnostic. He espoused the Omega Point Theory, which says that the universe evolves towards an ultimate state of complexity and spiritual consciousness.
Trying to figure out what was in Dali’s mind when he painted Celestial Elephant is impossible, but it’s easy to see the joy and mystery and otherworldliness that the work evokes.
Elliot Erwitt – New York City
Born in Paris and raised in New York, Elliot Erwitt is one of the world’s most famous photographers. His photographs are touching, often humorous and always magnificently executed.
We have several of Elliot Erwitt’s iconic photos, hand signed, at VFA.
Donald Sultan – Japanese Pines
Donald Sultan’s sculptures and prints have texture and warmth. Sultan uses industrial materials and cutting edge techniques to create his work.
Japanese Pines is one of his finest art prints, available at VFA.
Yoshimoto Nara – Doggy Radio
Yoshimoto Nara is a superstar in Japan and an icon around the world. Doggy Radio, with its Nose Turner Dial, would make anyone smile, any time of the year.
