MAO Art Buy of the Month... a new multiple from Compound Editions is now available!
So.. today we have something egg-stra special for my little Art Buying MAO-ettes.
Some of you may already have read about this new wonderful series of editioned contemporary art called, Compound Editions. Here's their website for the project. It's been hatched as the brain child of Gallery / Art Blogger extra-ordinarier Edward Winkleman, and the innovative chicks at the Schroeder Romero Gallery. Known to their art friends as WinkleSchRoe.. or was that SchroRoWink? Anyway...for those who don't know, these 2 galleries rule the roost down there at the dead far west end of 27th street in Chelsea.
FYI, this new collaboration. is only a 4 month old project. But Compound Editions has already garnered some very impressive attention from both, Art & Auction Magazine, plus this month's Art In America! Wow, these art hustlers bright gallerist sure do work fast!
So the contemporary art market may have already killed the goose.. but there's still a few golden eggs left to be had by astute collectors!
Just a few days ago, Compound Edition already released their Second Artist Multiple.
This time it has been created by the thoughtful conceptual artist, Andy Yoder, and you can rest assured this one is going over easy!
We at MAO have recently learned this edition is already more than half sold out.
Well, we can certainly see why, sculptor Andy Yoder has created a hard to boil pass up, totally witty, must have, art object. It's friendly, familiar and it has perfectly scrambled encapsulated the uneasy feelings during these difficult times in the Art World.
This edition consists of 3 gilded golden eggs, neatly nestled in a pile of shredded US currency..all encased in a cute little protective wooden (Pine?) box. The object is titled "All Your Eggs." And we just love it..you might say we're a bit eggs-tatic over here at MAO with this one!
All Your Eggs

cause this one will not last..even in this terrible slowing economy.
It's been frequently stated on wall street, "This economy is worse than a painful divorce, cause you have lost half your total net worth and you're still stuck with your wife!" So everyone, try to look on the sunny side, MAO knows, your stock portfolios maybe all cracked up, and your 401k is now only a 201k..but at least with only $100 bucks, you can still
