Artist Mary Jo Vath Is Saving That One for Later

Mary Jo Vath's Chrysanthemum and Truffle (2004).

This darling, somewhat mournful scene by Mary Jo Vath, up at Heskin Contemporary through November 15, is like a mini-ballet, the upside-down chrysanthemum like a swan — a rather fashion-forward one at that — and the chocolate wrappers akin to tutus. Gossip Girl’s Jenny Humphrey will be sending one of these down the runway next.
