love the name (art in LA)

we have a new favorite word, courtesty of an art opening invite from the honor fraser gallery:

beaut-esque


we think it sums up the painting pictured on the invite very well too: beautiful yet grotesque, all rolled into one slightly unsettling package. we'd probably prefer this well-crafted piece of beautesquery to hang in the home of someone else, rather than our own, as we prefer our art (like our food) not to stare back at us (hate them little fishies giving us the stink eye before we eats them); but that's the wonderful thing about art (and design)- one man's grotesque is another man's beautiful...

be sure to check out the exhibition if you are in the area- it will provide much food for thought, we're sure.
