I LOVE BARBARA BLOOM. I can’t think of any other artist who values objects (or considers the value of objects) quite like she does. Please read this. When I first heard about her I didn’t quite understand why I should think about her work in relation to mine. I was put off by written descriptions of her show The Reign of Narcissism. Who was this woman, with her Greek busts and golden teacups?? But the more I saw the more I fell in love with her work.
