The Palm Beach Post tags along with Dale Anderson at Art Basel Miami:
Palm Beach art collector Dale Anderson stopped in her tracks, stared, then cut through the crowd to reach her target – a clutch of artificial flowers poking out of a too-tall vase standing on a pedestal.
Excuse me, what is this about?” she asked. [ . . . ] Dealer Anthony Reynolds explained that Mark Wallinger’s piece, Still Life, was indeed for real. “It’s about reducing art to its absolute simple basics,” he said. “And, being that they’re synthetic flowers, they’re still life.”
The price? $40,000. Anderson listened with a straight face.
“This is what gives everything a bad name,” she said after leaving the booth.
