Joseph Cornell
Soap Bubble Set (Lunar Space Object)
1959

One of my favorite artists. When I was trying to process the six-levels-of-crazy Matthew Barney Cremaster cycle, and dealing with the sort of class-issues-y ideas raised by it that holy crap, do you have to have a zillion dollars to make art that people care about, I found a lot of solace in Utopia Parkway. It’s Deborah Solomon’s biography of Cornell, and it’s FANTASTIC.
