shambolic means obviously disorganized or confused

December 13th, 2008


fast and furious
just because i am taking a major art break doesnt mean that others dont still like to take it all in


ara’s piece at ratio 3 was super cool


constraction tube!


takeshi print and barry bunch


ara backgammon set


mitzi pederson drawings


canada booth
cant really figure them out anymore


xylor work looked great


joe might have lost me


michael williams is always been pretty challenging too!
in a good way


time to leave


no we must see everything! we must compulsively see and photo everything


like old chris johanson drawings that i thnk we already photoed in SF
we must compulsively photo these importnat works because who knows when they may disappear into private collections


we must even take vertical photos if we have to!

i hate vertical photos

and i hate black and white photos

i got a C+ in Photo I by the way

how does someone get a C+ in the gayest easiest class ever invented?


stairway to nowhere


awesome


super awesome
i dont know why i like the really paranoid ones the best….


this is also a dark work


favourite


“earliest known”


why did i take a photo of this poo


maybe i have a soft spot for maniacal laughter


fuentes


with a Darger


they are all great everyone!
this painting was ridiculously priced and sold at $25,000
intense!


unknown and not bad


unknown and when in doubt, use titties!


small A projects? or am i all turned around?

pardon me “l’objet petit a”


huh


kim light booth


never though simmons and burke would resemble kristin baker!


these were neat


if i am so “digitally savvy”


why does my eye/brain refuse to process this as i think the artists would like people to see it?


neato


this is the point where you have seen so much bad art that this painter starts to look REALLY SPECIAL insteada just pretty good / OK


barf


leave the spraying to the professionals


and seriously, does no one else find it laughable that dan colen and adam mcewan make the same pieces? because everyone lets them, and i dont get it.

and if anyone writes back saying “the nuances of the placement and coloration of the gum is an important distinction” i will forever throw in the towel on humanity

its time to stand up, people who have the time and energy to, and call bullshit on things like this. even if you are afraid the people doing it are cooler than you and will insult you in the middle of a party in front of all of your friends


these guys arent afraid of looking stupid
they knit opposing ends of an elongating intenstine all over the world


neet


the “fruit and flower deli” booth was just as irritatingly cryptic as their website and gallery structure. google them. their gallery isnt “open” and is run by an “oracle” and a “keeper”


sorry i have worked myself up into a kinda “hater” mentality from that gum painting comment
sorry! i take it back
i take it allll back
whenever you feel yourself hardening and condensing into HATER MODE you must back away from the abyss


kineko’s gallery called… i forget


cool


the journo as patrick oddly calls them


oh great! i found a few “rogue” photos to clean the art fair out of our eyes


like Jim studio behind the scenes


i love jim’s art
which is why his (colabbo) art is in my “heroes” column


poo


yay! the filter missed his butt this time


jim
an ode to jim


an ode to gardening shoes that people wear in public


an ode to gingerbread houses filled only with power tools


an ode to everyone helping everyone even when they are not paid to


like pud pud


and this guy with the cool static shirt


and the painter guy, who probably did get paid but probably not enough!


and ben who i alway give impossible tasks to


that he somehow completes


to making one’s own paintings despite second-hand relayed derision from previously mentioned in the blog prominent “community members”


to the greeks!
if andreas hadnt come things would have sucked!!!


to showing facemaker again


to improvising


to neckface


who is the right kind of underdog


to “the next dan colen”
said with so many layers to that that i will just retract it now


to spray in general


spray


oh pud


to tim!
i loved working with tim he is great.


to questioning what this whole “community” thing is really about


deciding it’s bullshit


and then changing your mind!


to running out of the car and into a parking lot


leaving the car running


with a bewildered girl in it


to teamwork!


and phil frost driving his piece down staying up for 3? nights and finishing it at 630PM opening night


to forgetting that i shouldnt smoke while photoing


to whatever device lets people do this!


is that the “straw mod”?


to mask face


and art collectors!


and pervy doodlers


suprise guests


suprise art


fans


punks


and team!
