John Baldessari: Foot and Stocking (With Big Toe Exposed)

Available here.

Clearly most of us can't afford to buy these at $8000 a pop, but I don't think the artist would mind if you took an inspired by shot of your own.  :)

There's a very good reason why socks cover the whole foot.
I'd rather have a painting of flowers or fruit.

...love Maegan said...

these always crack me up ...mostly cuz he found the ugliest of big toes and toenails he could find.

Caroline said...

$8000 really? Like really really? Ugh.

Leigh Viner said...

I love him! I saw an exhibit in Paris of him .. and yes agree Maegan, ewww the toes, but it makes me laugh lol..


Hope you are having a great weekend darling! xo

Vivienne said...

pfft. I see this on my own foot all the time.

L.A. Daze said...

$8000 for that?? Ew! Oh well...it's...art...

But I am not a fan. Especially the last toe. EW!

Missy said...

I was feeling better...

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

That kinda creeps me out.

Dancing Branflake said...

is it me or do people need to trim their toe nails? I would never let mine get that long!

chloe said...

but, why?



god, i hate feet!
and $8000 for them!? i thought there was a recession going on!??

tulpen said...

I thought ONE was sorta funny. But another and another and another... just toes man. Just toes.

Char said...

ummm yeah...pass

Big Red said...

I don't have anything against feet or toes, but something about the 1 toe peeking through a black socks gives me the heebee-jeebees.
But then, I am a person who has issues riding escalators, so take my opinion for what it is worth.

hahah, can't say I would ever display these ANYWHERE but they are certainly funny to look at. They do just remind me of guys though, guys too lazy to changed their ripped socks...

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Err nail clippers are a great thing. I'd rather spend $8k on a Birkin!

Fragrant Liar said...

In my experience, these are nice big toes. The big bad ugly toes would make you wanna hurl. These are like G rated toes.

Lorena said...

Could of had the model get a pedicure first.
My toes are cleaner....

georgia~gigi said...

Wow, $8000, those lil piggies are going straight to the market!
Happy Sunday Drollgirl!
Smoochies

Deep. Very deep. I'm so awed by all the layers of meaning in this work of art that I will never look at my foot poking out of my tights the same again. In fact, I might spend all day looking at my toe and just consider all the possibilities in the universe. For free. Rather than for $8,000.

Adiya said...

Uhhh... no thanks, i'll pass. This is kinda weird. I wouldn't want to look at these all day :s

I have a follower who has a blog in which he takes pictures of a big ugly toe in various places, like the roaming gnome I suppose. He never leaves comments and his blog is not written in English...I'll go back and see if I can find his site then post it here, JUST for you, because I'm nice like that. - G

$8000 a pop?! are you friggen kidding me?!?! holy hell...shit i could come up with some ugly toe art and make a fortune too!

Down and Out Chic said...

maybe it's my dislike for feet (toenails in particular) but this is kind of making me queasy. sometimes i look at the contemporary art movement and let out a big sigh. this is one of those times.

Kitty Stampede said...

OMIGAWD!!!! Hilarious!!! They are so me. I am always popping out of my socks..always. toooooo funny!!!

you always have the wickedest posts and finds.

sorry for being a sucky sucker lately.

Diana said...

This would drive me crazy but then i'd LOL to death if I really saw this in someone's living room
