Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Savvy?  Photo-pirating never looked better.  I felt like I was in the Sistine Chapel, the dark-suited guards “shhhhh”ing and sternly telling us not to take pictures.  

.

Obviously, I took pictures.

.

It was vast and visceral.  ||  Austere and whimsical.

.

One thing’s for sure: I felt, as an artist, the struggle of an artist.  I find it especially profound that people accept the art in adornment; and, in that, the subject transcends its own object and breaks into something more elaborate, potent, essential.  

.

I have hardly the words to describe how I felt about it, but I emerged with a few pictures, to say the least.  I’ll suffice in cashing them in for the words I cannot articulate. 

.

DO NOT miss it, as it closes up shop 7 August 2011.
