ART TALK WITH GENEVIEVE BAHRENBURG
Genevieve Bahrenburg
What are your favorite piece/pieces or artists on KiptonART.com? Why?
James Kennedy's Hoist and Sarah Dueth's The Wedding. I love the use of color and both are emotionally stirring, in very different ways.

What was the last exhibition you saw?
Cy Twombly at Gagosian and Georgia O'Keefe at the Whitney.

How would you describe your style in your home?
Muscular minimalism with an inordinate amount of black and white photography and coffee table art books.

What artist has most influenced or inspired you in life?
Tough question, I can't pick one. Edith Wharton, Fitzgerald, Avedon, T.S. Eliot, Motherwell and Picasso.

ART TALK WITH CATHERINE FORBES
Catherine Forbes
What are your favorite piece/pieces or artists on KiptonART.com?
Sabina Forbes II is a favorite artist...not just because she is my sister.  I am awed by her process and innovation. James Kennedy has many great pieces.  I was initially attracted by the architectural quality of much of his work, but the piece that has made the biggest impression on me is Citadel - it evokes Turner, a favorite. Debra Frieden's photos have impact. I'm especially partial to Torso 3.

How would you describe your style in your home?
Eclectic warmth dictated by my various passions. I have a portrait of Churchill next to works by my grandfather, sisters, photos I've taken on my travels, historic and sports memorabilia, and drawings by nieces, nephews, and godchildren.

Who/what is your biggest influence or inspiration right now?

My biggest photographic influence right now is the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. Reflecting on the nature of fundamental elements of our existence such as time, light, and fire, Sugimoto creates intelligent, ultra-relevant work that effectively uses all of photography's strengths to explore simple and profound questions. His command over the twin realms of aesthetics and concept inspire me to push harder to shed a beautiful light on the questions I feel are important.

ARTWALK NY Garners Fervent Support

by Sarah Basile

Narcisco RodriguezLast night's 15th Annual ARTWALK NY, benefitting Coalition for the Homeless, raised in excess of $650,000 and over 850 people attended, making the evening the most successful event in the organization's history. Commanding the stage was Eliza Osborne of Sotheby's, who stood before an art savvy crowd, which included Cindy Sherman, Anh Duong, Lisa Anastos, and Lydia Fenet. The attendees' exuberance stemmed from the impressive collection of works for sale, featuring legendary artists Jeff Koons, John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, and the evening's illustrious honoree, Pat Steir. Each of the ten lots was donated by the artists in support of Coalition for the Homeless, the evening's cause célèbre and one of the city's most inspiring charities.Read more on Artwalk NY in the KiptonART Online Magazine.
