This is a bedpost painted by my good friend, artist Elizabeth Hoffman. I have so many things of hers already and I figured it was okay to spread the love by paying this forward. Elizabeth is originally from Pennsylvania, but she lived here in Los Angeles for 9 years. Before moving back to PA, she purged a ton of her artwork and I got to take advantage. Her art is all over my house, but there is next to none I would ever part with. A couple of her things may come up here, if I can bear it. This little wooden bedpost is something I can let go of for now. It’s an interesting folk-arty sort of piece that stands 13 ¾ inches tall by 3.5 inches thick (square). It’s also a bit over 3 pounds. It has 4 unique sides: pokadots, an ice cream cone, scary clown/cat heads, and a carrot. It most likely comes from a child’s bed (knowing Elizabeth). Her work is in a number of prestigious private Los Angeles collections. She was a very popular artist during her time here. One of her last exhibits in LA was alongside of Henry Darger at Michael Kohn Gallery. She has a very distinct color palette and style. One of the most special people and artists I have ever known.
I have shown my work at the same gallery as Elizabeth. If you can guess which gallery it was, the bedpost is yours.
A. I-5 Gallery?
B. Highways Performance Space and Gallery?
D. three. Gallery?
F. La Luz de Jesus?
G. All of the above?
