Death Star 4

Alas, there's no sparks, not even in the acres and acres of work now at Gagosian in Chelsea titled "Day is Done". I do admit that he's got the whole schizophrenic market cornered but others do it much more economically. And what's with the ridiculous report on the opening by David Rimanelli on the Artforum site:
