Excellent! - 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.Excellent! By Carl Magnone Ralph Pucci's creativity is pure genius, as depicted in the book SHOW, a composition of his quality of artistry and successful workmanship. SHOW spans 15 years of Pucci's gallery exhibitions, and recaptures the energy of each opening. While savoring every page of the book, the vivid memories of attending many of these openings rush back. As one enters the Pucci gallery, there is a spontaneous reaction of excitment, entertainment and awe--the energy you can only feel by being in the midst of a genius such as Pucci himself, and artists and designers Andree Putman, Ruben Toledo, Christy Turlington, and Kenny Scharf,to name a few. SHOW depicts Ralph Pucci's ever creative mind, the mind of an artist who strives for more and pushes himself to achieve it.Having a copy of SHOW on your bookshelf or coffee table will certainly bring excited interest to like minds and collectors. A sequel to SHOW, highlighting a more recent opening where the talented Buglisi Dance Theater performed amidst the mannequins, would be awesome. The show I mention was compelling, ingenious, and masterful, and is further proof that Mr. Pucci is a visionary who in not afraid to take chances with originality.
Ralph Pucci Takes Center Stage - 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.Ralph Pucci Takes Center Stage By Eric Feigenbaum Ralph Pucci never brandished a paint brush or crafted a plank of weathered teak. He does however wield a deft baton, prompting fashion illustrators to design mannequins and sculptors to reconsider scale. A lover of music, Pucci performs his job as a master conductor; an impresario bringing together multiple forms of artistic expression. He built a successful career by daring to be different. Pucci doesn't follow trends, he sets them.This past May, his New York showroom bristled with excitement as some 800 aesthetes gathered to celebrate the publication of "Show". Published by Glitterati Incorporated, with photographic images by Antoine Bootz, the book represents fifteen years of innovation and extraordinary work from Ralph Pucci International.Shortly after joining the mannequin repair company started by his parents in 1954, Pucci realized the long term success of the organization hinged upon reaching out to other industries. Collaborating with the renowned Andre Putnam was the catalyst that propelled Pucci into the world of fine art and home dÃ©cor. Soon after, he began alliances with designers such as Vladimir Kagan, Herve Van der Straeten, Jens Risom and Chris Lehrecke."Show" is a testament to Pucci's aesthetic sensibilities. He has a gift for creating artistic harmony from a varied palette, ranging from the surreal photographs of Josef Astor to the pristine minimalism of furniture designer Robert Bristow. "Show" illustrates Pucci's brilliant melding of the mannequin industry to fine furniture and art. Believing in simplicity of form and subtlety of movement, his work celebrates the inherent parallels in all forms of art.Prof. Eric FeigenbaumChair of Visual MerchandisingLIM College
