Greetings from Binissalem, Mallorca!
A few weeks ago, I visited Bernardi Roig’s studio (a former wine cellar) and home, both from the 16th century. This was in preparation for his elaborate Intersections project scheduled for the fall of 2014, when we’ll have his works dispersed throughout the Phillips and outside the building. I took some photos of the artist in his studio and of his beautiful home for your viewing pleasure and to give you a sneak peek as to what you can expect from his 2014 exhibition. The artist promised to send homemade wine form Mallorca for his opening, so watch for the event in November 2014!
Saludos and hasta pronto!

Earlier today I shared photos from my visit with Antony Gormley. On that same trip, I also went to Paris to visit Xavier Veilhan who will be doing the most elaborate Intersections project so far, opening on November 3, including sculptures, paintings, and photographs. Besides making art (in photos below, his new dripping paintings just for the Phillips), he makes really good food and starts from scratch–purely “bio” as they say in France, meaning organic: risotto with truffles.
O-la-la, there is more to art: simple pleasures of life. Bon Appétit.
