Above, Elizabeth Turk’s Cage: Box 6, 2012
This year, Armory Show was a powerful, albeit overwhelming, sea of inspiration. But amidst highfalutin works by the likes of Cindy Sherman and John Baldessari, I found an irresistible treasure by Elizabeth Turk. Made from a single block of marble, the smooth, interwoven strands of soft grey and white that make up Cage: Box 6 caught my eye from across a crowded stall and has harpooned my thoughts ever since. I was so mesmerized by the piece that my fiancé had to practically drag me away from the Hirschl & Adler Modern booth after a few minutes. If only my magazine job paid a little more, this piece would be mine!!
