Last month I stopped by Hashimoto Contemporary to see Lorien Stern's show Chums. Stern's endearing ceramic shark heads are by turns fierce, friendly, and glum. She adorns them with brilliant colors and patterns and gives them little fish pals to hang out with. You find that you, too, want to be their friend. I'm especially partial to the whale sharks (third image from the bottom). If you'd like to see every single one of these guys (all sold out, alas) you can do that here.
