I have been drooling over a these sexy/haunting/retro beach photographs by Christian Chaize ever since he was featured on 20×200. He reminds me of Massimo Vitali…an aritst I have REALLY been drooling over for years. Someday I will have $20K to buy one of his massive diptych C-prints. Someday.
In the meantime The Hus and I are bemoaning whether or not we want to invest $600 in Christian’s awesome Praia Piquinia subscription series. (Apparently I’m not the only one who’s been drooling over this photo series.) It’s a bit complicated, but a truly fabulous idea for artists and art collectors. Problem is, we have like 1000 other more practical things to drop $600 on. But when art calls, its hard to ignore it, I tell ya. Also, I’d love to have a piece from his original series, rather than an open-ended edition; so the other debate is do we just start saving and buy the piece we want, in the massive size we want and forgo the totally fun subscription idea?
I know one day we’ll have a piece from Chaize’s series hanging on our walls. In the meantime, thank goodness I can gaze and drool on his website whenever I’m feeling lonely for it.
