Meet Me in New York



Sometimes I get a little ๐’‚๐’“๐’•๐’”๐’š online. I love being able to post my real life on here...quiet moments captured candidly, empty restaurants I sipped wine in, paintings that I admire, sculptures that I have appraised, and books that I lose myself in.โ €โ €


Iโ€™ll be sharing a series of photographs called ๐‘ด๐’†๐’†๐’• ๐‘ด๐’† ๐’Š๐’ ๐‘ต๐’†๐’˜ ๐’€๐’๐’“๐’Œ that I curated while visiting the big apple. This is the first one of the series, taken by my best friend and most recent Brooklynite @taryntuffnut while we spent the day at The Met.



These shots I love...because they feel nostalgic to me. When I was editing them, all my incredible memories from my time in New York flooded back to me.


"In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, ๐’”๐’‰๐’‚๐’‘๐’†๐’… ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’‘๐’†๐’“๐’‡๐’†๐’„๐’• ๐’Š๐’ ๐’‚๐’•๐’•๐’Š๐’•๐’–๐’…๐’† ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’‚๐’„๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it." -๐‘ด๐’Š๐’„๐’‰๐’†๐’๐’‚๐’๐’ˆ๐’†๐’๐’ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โฃ


I love this quote...just a little reminder that we are all sculptors, carving our lives into something lovely and unexpected. When I came across this piece, my instinct was to track the movement in the art and pull from my perspective. It revealed to me a few ideas...dance, movement, force and fabric. A balance of femininity of shape with the masculinity of the medium. โฃโฃ

We walked down a few hallways, then down an elevator, and then down a set of stairs thinking we were about to somehow get close to the exit, but luckily we stumbled into this exhibition. I was so excited because it was not one I wanted to miss..โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Into the dark hall we went, where mannequins filled the room featuring promised gifts from Sandy Schreier. She was a pioneer collector, who curated one of the finest private fashion collections for over half a century...could you imagine committing to a craft for over half a century? ๐‘ฐ ๐’„๐’‚๐’ ๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’“๐’†๐’๐’š ๐’„๐’๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’Š๐’• ๐’•๐’ ๐’˜๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐‘ฐ ๐’˜๐’‚๐’๐’• ๐’•๐’ ๐’†๐’‚๐’• ๐’‡๐’๐’“ ๐’ƒ๐’“๐’†๐’‚๐’Œ๐’‡๐’‚๐’”๐’•...โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Anyways...@taryntuffnut snapped this photo of me in full fashion euphoria.
