Seen: Shag -- Conspicuous Consumption

The master of retro cool, Shag, opened his Conspicuous Consumption show at Billy Shire Fine Arts this past Saturday (9.15.07).   Ryan Crippen (RC44) caught the show and sent back these pics from the opening. Shag transformed the gallery into a scene from the Rat Pack with a  mini bachelor pad installation -- unbelievable.  In addition to a few large pieces, Shag created 101 acrylic on canvas paintings (6" x 6")  -- pretty insane. Great news for collectors with modest budgets.  Sticking with the show's title and theme -- each of these paintings came in plastic bags with header cards.  Brilliant.   "Open or not" -- taken to a whole new level.   

Looking at Shag's art for as I wrote up this post, art toys seem like a good fit as long as they capture his primary style and subjects. Might be a challenge engineering wise but seems doable.  Nothing rumored at all, just saying... Agree or disagree? <ducks>.
