but we do celebrate Valentine's Day . . .

. . . and would like everyone else to be able to do the same

Justin Marshall Baby, I wanna make-out 2006 C-print

This was one of the works in the artist's show in Chicago's excellent Thomas Robertello Gallery last fall. Barry came across a different image by the artist from the same series, and had shown it to me. I looked at some of its mates and found this one, which managed to charm both of us on this special day.

An artist friend who is also an academic recently referred to our own collection as being at least partly "whimsical" in character. Whatever did she mean?
