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
takeshi print and barry bunch
ara backgammon set
mitzi pederson drawings
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
i dont know why i like the really paranoid ones the best….
this is also a dark work
why did i take a photo of this poo
maybe i have a soft spot for maniacal laughter
with a Darger
they are all great everyone!
this painting was ridiculously priced and sold at $25,000
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”
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?
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
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
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
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
yay! the filter missed his butt this time
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
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
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
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
