  Recent Arrivals 1/20/2006

There are a few new things here that I should mention. First off, Buchhandlung Walther Koenig has shipped Anish Kapoor: Drawings and David Shrigley: Worried Noodles (The Empty Sleeve Project) [a collaboration with Tomlab, a German music label]. The Kapoor drawings have a wonderful luminous quality to them, evident in the rich pigment used for the work. From a show at London's Lisson Gallery, this catalog includes essays by Jeremy Lewison and Laurent Busine (Price $65.00 HC). David Shrigley teamed up with Tomlab to produce Worried Noodles, an artist book of sorts, packaged in a record sleeve, but without any record. Instead the reader gets a 48 page songbook with drawings and lyrics for Shrigley-esque songs (Price $28.00). Also just arrived is the catalog for the latest Trenton Doyle Hancock outing at Dunn and Brown Contemporary in Dallas. The show, entitled St. Sesom and the Cult of Color, continues Hancock's cosmology of vegans and mounds, but this time focusing on a beatified vegan St. Sesom (Price $20.00). Hancock is a local artist and a two-time Whitney Biennial exhibitor. Congratulations to Hancock on his show and catalog.
