i finished this this morning and am the happiest thingie
but lets not start there
these dogs are still sleeping, i shit you not
they have been asleep since before i left for rome
went to Abby Scholar’s love letter show pat and i were in
here is a little link
terence sent it to me saying “kathy can poot ants in your pants”
douglas gordon one
abby portners i think
shit i cant remember everyones
that one is pat’s to me
that one is mine to pat
dont worry you read these before
terence and garrick joint one
real charles manson one
anna nicole smith
hot n heavy!
next is another hot cramped area but this time a bigger fire hazard:
SVA open studios BFA program yay
it really is a “school” isnt it
text message exchange as art
who doesnt love some tree nips??
there is something really selfindulgent about these that i liked
oh no its “awkwardness art”
where feeling awkward is part of the art
also known as embarrassment art
also known as “run away!”
i snuck a photo in the side peep hole
look how few people are holding in their guts
stuffed cloak bag of guts!
tara donovan art
this i liked
he mexicaned dan flavin
abstraction and jokes is good
patrick has a teen friend who goes here
a graffiti teen
i forget his name deliberately
all the teen boys like porn
i had a friend Lindsay Marshall in college whose dad, to my horror, had one of these in his pool room
from far away it was a portrait of Bill Clinton
this piece was great
one of my favourite words
some stoner art i couldnt back up enough to shoot
a static piece
best in show!
these i liked too
pat was hurrying me out so i couldnt look too long
i think they are ink on paper
i think this is an artist but i didnt have a chance to ask her about them
this was funny
this i loved for simple reasons
reminds me of Komar and Melamid’s Peoples Choice paintings
youve all read about this in art history right?
one last “holy shit” piece and we are out
what has become of todays yoots
this is the spaghetti and meatballs i made before adding the sauce
this is NERO magazine who is having a big festival called DISSONANZA soon in rome that Terence and Cory are in!
and joy of joys! i am so happy to be done
did it turn out good?
it has 4 paintings that go with it
now i just have to paint the four and the group will look so nice!
oh and just to fucking gild the lilly today…
“not that i care about artforum reviews”
“but this is stupendous!!!!”
