Steven Skollar

Hot Dog

I was in the Fenimore Art Museum, in Cooperstown, N.Y., yesterday, and wandered into a room hung with the art of Steven Skollar, who I’d never heard of, and whose work captivated me instantly. It’s fabulous, unexpected and fun. I love it when life offers up such good surprises. (These first two images were not in the exhibit; I found them elsewhere.)


This Electrolux was the vacuum cleaner of my boyhood; I never dreamed it would someday be the subject of a portrait.


“Irwin, the Shooting Man from Mars” (2010) is the one at the exhibit that transfixed me.
