i promise to look at other people’s art and not just mine
like the other booths at Volta not just my awesome booth
how much does this remind u of the wallpaper at Le Baron all of a sudden too?
where the walls have eyes
and the eyes have walls!
this booth really took the seriousness out of Volta for me
and at the same time who cant like it? maybe i like this shit
i like this shit, dont know why, think it is pretty neatoo
confused and intrigued a bit
silly and evocative
ridiculous yet neato
finalyl someone riippin off George Condo he is an under-ripped-off artist
shit i was with colin but i think i cropped him out
i love this piece i would love ot have this in my house
pretty excited by this artist, he is really inventive and doesnt have just one trick
this looked more like one-trick
but a good trick!
i will post all our wall labels tho since we spent so much time on them jesper and i
let’s check out more other people art tho at the Eddie Martinez “Matador” show at Journal in wburg
space was most confusing part to me, just dont see how, well, you know
and the cute little wood room with williams and
whatever this is and
whatever this is which is adorable
went to Peter Funch’s new house and gave him some diversion bowls from Sur La Table wish i could tel that story here
wish i could tell lots of stories here that must stay sub vino
hahaha i should have named this post SUB DEVO
ill get wittier next time i promise
pondering a “new abstraction” show to go here in May to be honest
Kavi Gupta the best gallery in Chicago could probably help me with that
they helped me with Scott Reeder in the last one
Tony Tasset is hilarious
of course i read “POST GOOD” as a blog reference hahaha
this is a 70s black minimal artist who was in the first Artist Space show curated by Carl Andre and WAlter De Maria and
fuck just think how many young artists rip this shit off so hard just mine the 70s sorta overlooked people and COPY EXACTLY what they did back then
this is bronze and shit, i got to touch it, it pays to be a curator you get to finger everything!!
Tal R at Bo Bjerggard
Bo Bjergard made fun of me for not knowing this “most famous painter in scandinavia” and then i made fun of him for being named Bo Bjergarrd
shit what a shit photo of the Tal and Jules sorry
got the dick in focus for you guys at least!
this stuff never sticks
nick cave hope this is an old one of dude is getting hella repetitive
cecily brown monotype really beautiful
mini Pilupchyuk like form the LA fair remember?
this may is a May thin, huh?
and then i see things like this and am like
new abstraciton my ass
this was in LA fart fair too
i woudl say it kinda is great but then i see other paintings even like Mark Flood last show that did the paint like this too but was actually ABOUT SOMETHING
looks great in the flash!
flash in the pan
i have never made a pan flash
is that even a thing?
i love how whatever pixelishy this is
better than louie eisners very similar one because of the purposeful paint handling
god and this is so good i am not the only one who is really blown away by things like this am i?
new one too
and is this
the natalie frank i know?
if so i am pretty impressed
this gallery was so funny about these works
they look awesome
peter linde busk in our show too
they got all butt hurt at me over nothing
nice seeing these in person again
oh no and then!!!
bjarne melgaard made a whole booth about mary boone
he is a big tough fisty gay if you belive his books and then to make a show about mary
so werid to me
because i might be
like, offended or something?
i feel funny inside i know that much
remember this painting by Iranian LA artist Tala MAdani/
i had really wanted her in Chicken or Beef and was so disappointed
man i woud lhave loved to have hung this guy
you have to show artists who WANT to be in your shows not twist their arms
this can go in Jesper’s book show maybe
this is what Wangeshi Mutu is up to now
not sure its any better than her first deitch thing with Chris Perez so long ago
this i took a photo of for my own reasons and dont condone it
this is why Jeffrey used to do the armory even tho he didnt like it there
this is WAY TOO BUSY why did she put all that shit at the bottom what a bad move
this Jesper liked but hmmm
he sees a connection between JH and BK and Street Art that I dont want to see
not sure what i think
but that is a good thing!
im sure i dont like this for example
im sure i dont like these too much even tho i like this artist, i dont know why i dont like os much
this i didnt have a chance to think about because the artist was there and introduced to me and clouded my brain
kinda liked these works on paper i guess
artforum dinner was fun
and saw this cool Andrew Kuo in a shop walking home
great art is everywhere and i am glad the fairs are takin down their tents today!
