Stephen Antonakos: Pillows 1962-1963

An Artist's Life, February 17, 1963
Stephen Antonakos
  At the Lori Bookstein Fine Art gallery the  work of Greek artist  Stephen Antonakos is on view up until March 16th, and is well worth the visit. He created this series in the early Sixties and has a Pop Art look.   The work is all pillows and pillow drawings that are embellished with items like nails, pipes, dolls, marbles, lights even a ferris wheel!  Many times the objects sprout out of the center or are wrapped up all around the pillow.  Are we looking into the remnants of a dream he has had?   You and your kids may find yourselves having some interesting conversations about dreams and art.  The exhibit is  perfect for all.
