Artnet gathered some sales from Pulse which has been notably quiet about transactions until now:
Now in its seventh year, Pulse and its director Cornell DeWitt are clearly atop the satellite art-fair circuit, with this year’s event drawing 15,000 visitors, including Hollywood tycoon (and recently fired Oscars producer) Brett Ratner and movie stars Adrien Brody, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, who was spotted scrutinizing Paramodel’s miniature sushi truck sculptures at Tokyo’s Mori Yu gallery, part of the fair’s IMPULSE section.
Danziger Gallery cleaned up with a series of six 1970s seascapes, “Sections of England: The Sea Horizons” by Garry Fabian Miller, selling for $20,000 apiece. And the young California artist Allison Schulnik, who layers oil paint onto her canvases like cake icing, sold 12 works out of her studio after her Culver City gallery, Mark Moore, sold both of the paintings it had brought to the fair. The artist is having a solo exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum in 2013.
Chicago dealer Carrie Secrist gallery sold two editions of Angelo Musco’s creepy five-panel photographic mural of piled naked bodies replicated into the shape of a forest’s root systems and branches, Xylem, each for $90,000. Santa Monica gallery Shoshana Wayne sold a photo triptych of Khmer Rouge prisoners by Dinh Q. Le,Cambodia: Splendour and Darkness, to a private collection in New York for $180,000. And Hasted Kraeutler sold Kim Dong Yoo‘s painting of Marilyn Monroe done up to resemble Einstein, Mao, JFK and other iconic figures, for $117,000.
