the natural graces that extinguish art

Photobucket
ahahahahahahha!

Photobucket
that photo really cleared my brain palate with humour

Photobucket
which is great because i was all tangled up in drama

Photobucket
i dont have time to address my personal problems so lets just look at the photos

Photobucket
lets grovel for our scraps

Photobucket
let’s catalogue the past and move on

Photobucket
we can puzzle it out later

Photobucket
brush it all under the knitwear

Photobucket
no exit is ever clean…

Photobucket
amen

Photobucket
Upton got a new lease on life so we had brunch

he likes to say it is month to month

Photobucket
when that wasn’t enough we had celebratory dinner

Photobucket
THERE WAS SO MUCH TO CELEBRATE i will tell you about it later

Photobucket
it’s all about freedom

freedom is free

Photobucket
Momofuku prix fixe is not 🙁

Photobucket
but how often do you get a random reprieve???

Photobucket
sigh!

Photobucket
fresh start

Photobucket
new perspective

Photobucket
things are weird in the house
upton wanted to prove to me that the rug i bought while he was away was too loud so he staged this little photo to make me feel embarrassed

Photobucket
it’s best to stay outside

Photobucket
arghhh i wish this truck had stood still for a sec
i love the half fixed truck look

Photobucket
i almost bought these but then realized i didnt have $400 for pony boots

Photobucket
avery and i had a very odd photo adventure instead

Photobucket
freedom isnt free
but digital photos are

Photobucket
bushes are

Photobucket
i know im being cagey

Photobucket
the truth is sometimes too brutal

Photobucket
i should put this photo up with the pigeons and their ravioli breakfast

Photobucket
then we visited Hanna Liden’s studio

Photobucket
hanna finishing some secret miami things

Photobucket
yum

Photobucket
here is another sneak miami preview
bunny-k by the sea!

Photobucket

Photobucket
oh shit i have to back up one sec

Photobucket
saw lots of fun things on the road to providence

Photobucket
this photo doesnt capture the real action which was pretty impressive

Photobucket
made it to Ara Peterson’s to pick up some works!

Photobucket
Ara likes to spray too
more spray soon dont worry

Photobucket
he has a new house with an awesome basement studio

Photobucket
and he still loves pinball!

Photobucket
this place was fantastic

Photobucket
full of male role models

Photobucket
we had to go in a big hurry
another crazy project to oversee back in nyc…

Photobucket
got in at like 4am
woke up at 7am to frantic calls from the wall
took a moment to sniff the ginkos

Photobucket
it really is GINKO TIME right now go sniff the poo berries

Photobucket

OMG

Photobucket

Photobucket
a little space man ran up while we were figuring out what the fuck was going on

Photobucket
spaceman made sprayyyyyy

Photobucket

Photobucket
i know youve seen a fill in

Photobucket
and i know youve seen a fire extinguisher tag

Photobucket
but have you ever seen a fire extinguisher fill in?

Photobucket

Photobucket
oh BOY

Photobucket
space man space man

Photobucket

Photobucket
pooting

Photobucket
if a tag is the simplest way to mark a wall….

Photobucket
then consider this the apotheosis

Photobucket

Photobucket

  1. Did pedrophile really use an anonymous proxy to post that comment with a false email? Is that how you do it on Craigslist, trolling for boys? I mean, all signs say yes. You’re awfully inquisitive. It’s alright, I don’t mind or care not knowing who you are. Have a nice life sitting in the loge, don’t get a nosebleed.

  2. Let’s be gentlemen and leave Kathy out of this. Why come on her blog acting out of pocket? Starting trouble… Name calling. Go punch your locker and stay in your habitat, if you can call it that.

  3. Don’t give sour grapes an hour on the market. Let’s get back to focusing on the brilliance of this post. Not even biased. It’s spectacular!

  4. I can take your pass out pics but Upton makes this blog make me want to shot myself in the fucking face. It was happy days when I thought you had dumped him? Or maybe you’re going for a metaphor? Something like a shit berry that just keeps clinging onto the hair around a cat’s asshole? Love the cat, hate the shit berry. Anyway go get laid in Basel by someone else so we don’t have to put up with his palid mug anymore.

  5. municipal waist! hehe
    upton drawing with his britches down
    is pretty good too. I have a collage around here somewhere called

    ‘the ultimate bohemian’
    which consists of like a 19th century white marble statue of a dog taking a grunty, but I put a top-hat on ’em..

    would you like that?

    that is sort of art from behind materielle..

    i know you hate surrealism, but Dali did a bunch of great ass shots where he conflated the cheeks with rhino horns. and there is also Linh Dinh’s blog _The Lower Half_

    http://lowerhalf.blogspot.com/

    you might like that.

    hope nada is rada

  6. So I hear you do your best impersonations on blogs. Sorry you’re stuck on bitter, quitter. My knuckles are hurting right now from a real world encounter with someone, albeit less scared, just like you.

    Typing really isn’t helping my hand. I like that you emulate my name; You’re so invested, you lame. Enjoy your bad review, I’ll stick to this beautiful view and Miles Davis while you Bitches brew.

    Hoping you cheer up.

  7. upton pallid yeah maaybe but hes as cute as they come – i loves the photos from the booth at nada kathy. will you show us some more?

  8. So. Because I don’t really intend on frequenting my girls blog much, you can feel as free as you know how to feel to email me at this account I’ve created to hear from you. I will check it sparingly, if I remember or care five minutes from now. But please, I don’t have time for the casual, so I ask you keep it formal and include a telephone number or address were I can reach you.

  9. it seems there are some very rude people in the comments list here!
    wow. i never read them before very closely. Look. There is only one place we know of where life exists at all. In the whole universe! So guys, give life a break. Can you even fathom how rare any of this is?
    Don’t spoil it by being lame. Arguably, it is sort of lame, but once the bornins’ done, it’s done. So if you don’t want to see the pictures of some angle of the art world, go somewhere else and look in.

    Every soil has a smell to tell.

    🙂

    May the farce be with you!

  10. is there going to be a miami recap? we want photos! must say i am loving what i can see of the hanna sculpture. upton,, or whatever you care to call yourself, i met you at the vogue party recently and no matter how charming or funny you are or think you were an asshole and you shouldn’t belittle someone infront of their friends and be mean for the sake of it so fuck you. did you get photos at the island kathy?
