My cousin Nina, whose Web site is among the links to the right, is an artist of striking and unique ability. But she is not so unique that ARTnews magazine hasn’t been able to lump her in with a few other sculptors as proponents of “The New Realism.” I’m proud to say Nina is featured prominently in the story, which leads the December issue: Her art is on the cover and takes up a full page inside, she is quoted and discussed at length and — in what she must take to be a rather nice turn of events — her showings are listed. (In addition to the Feigen Contemporary gallery in New York and Metaphor Contemporary Art in Brooklyn, she has two pieces at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park here in Massachusetts.)
That’s pretty much all I had to say. I have no point. Just bragging.
