Brice Marden rip-off or just coincidence?


Above, a felt mat currently on sale for $22.99.

Below, a Brice Marden painting


which, if it were on sale, would go for millions of dollars.

Here's another:


Marden's work was recently on display in a retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art that closed just last week.

Get a Marden felt mat below.

From the website:

    Felt Mat

    Resilient felt mat for back-easing cushioning at the kitchen sink, yet it holds up in an entryway.

    The secret: it's saturated with latex for long wear.

    The ribbon-like swirls in this rug are the result of a creative process that makes it super-durable.

    Looks like felt... durable enough for use outdoors.

    Use it at the kitchen sink or on the front porch!


Red or Lime.


Two sizes: Small (20" x 30") is $22.99; Large (23" x 35") is $29.99.

Both here.

The only question that remains now is, will the cease-and-desist order from Marden's attorney arrive at the mat's online seller before they sell out?

In any event, it won't be long.

Don't plan on waiting until Christmas to order one.

From my *other* blog:


I must be a modern art genius or sumpin'.

Or not.

I like the mat better for the way the ribbony squiggles shift color. I think it's more artisticly mature. So there.
