Baby Louis, Sandra Bullock’s 1-year-old son, is a dedicated art collector. Not that he has any idea of it just yet. His famous mom added recently two new paintings to the collection she is putting together for her baby boy.
On Saturday, the Oscar-awarded actress visited an art gallery in Glendale, California. The exhibition entitled “This Unvoyageable Gulf Obscure” featured the collage work of artist Patrick Roberts. According to Us Weekly, Bullock purchased two pieces of art at the gallery, one of them called “Abe Lincoln and His Time Machine”.
A press release regarding Roberts’ new art work, including print media cut-up pieces, describes his new exhibition as exploring “the idea that in our society we are consumed by one singular story”.
Bullock arrived at the event alone, greeted several friends and chatted with some including artist Shepard Fairey, the creator of the red, white and blue “Obama Progress” poster.
The two new additions complete the baby Louis collection which also includes Andy Warhol’s “Peaches” print. This piece was won in an auction sale for the price of $14,ooo by Sandra Bullock’s CAA agents. The artwork was a gift for little Louis Bardo Bullock.
“I want to thank Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd for not being cheap f*cks and gifting my son with his first Warhol”, Sandra joked.
Bullock adopted her baby domestically, at the beginning of 2011. Since then, she felt like her entire life changed for the better. All the previous worries evaporated and all issues came second to the needs of her boy. There was little need to adapt to her new mommy life since Louis fit right in, as if his place had always been there and he had already been a part of her universe. Her new life just fit and she “never had a moment of worry again”, Sandra said in an interview for People magazine published three months after the adoption took place.
