Today was the last full day in Los Angeles for French artist Daniel Buren, and he spent it busily working at the Gemini workshop, collaborating with Master Printers James Reid and Richard Kaz.  Buren arrived in Los Angeles a week earlier, and enjoyed staying at the home of Gemini co-owners Elyse and Stanley Grinstein while creating what promises to be an exciting project.  There is still a lot of experimentation and proofing to be done before the project is resolved, but as with his 1989 Gemini collaboration, Buren is developing a series in which each individual work will be composed of a unique configuration of striped square elements.  To say “bon voyage” to Daniel and his wife Chantal, Sidney and I took them to a lovely dinner at Bouchon, Thomas Keller’s traditional French bistro in Beverly Hills.
