Matt: I can only think of one piece by Friedman that even remotely resembles Donovan's work (or vice-versa, however you want to say it). Friedman's Untitled toothpick sculpture from 1995 has this same quality of massive reiteration, but that's about it. Are there others?

This was very cool! -Must have taken a lot of trips to mcdonalds to accumulate enough straws for those installations. She obviously works at a dry cleaners to get all those buttons.

i wanted to jump right back in and clarify - i know there's nothing new under the sun, but sometimes things look so similar to works by a different (very famous) contemporary artist, and it kind of sucks to see it in a reputable gallery. meh.
