To see the exhibition of abstract american painters circa 1940 - 1960. This exhibition is vast and with far too many paintings to absorb in one visit. (A topic for a future blog, do museums curate such large exhibits in order to bring people back and make more money?). As a very figurative painter myself, I've always had issues with understanding abstract art and mostly have to follow my gut. For instance, I completely feel the genius of a Jackson Pollock but in an entirely subjective way. The passion shows through in his paintings but the paintings themselves don't make sense to me. I am a lot more comfortable with De Kooning's more figurative works as well as his colour palette. Painters like Barnett Newman leave me confused and uncomfortable… Continue reading… 11 comments

Artist Traveling Italy __" day 4 of the Cosmos coach tour Wed. Apr. 28 2010 Florence " this is my second time in this beautiful city. First stop is the Perizzo leather factory and showroom n the city centre. I decide to buy an exquisite jacket, it is so soft. Every time I wear it I ™m transported back to Florence. We then have a walking tour with local guide, Francesca. By the end of this day I__™ll have walked 5 hours. We set off from the Piazza San Croce. Francesca points out interesting architecture including the large metal rings in the walls for tying up horses and the small windows in the walls next to the front doors. Apparently for putting carafes of wine in to customers. These guides know their stuff and study for years to become a city guide… Continue reading… 0 comments

I was fully prepared to dislike this show when I first heard about its conception over a year ago and I was not disappointed. Stereotypical, pretentious and formulaic, packed with tension filled pauses while we wait to see who gets eliminated, is so predictable. You mean to tell me that Sarah Jessica Parker couldn__™t come up with a ___reality show___ concept that broke the format, not even a little? The contestants were carefully chosen to represent what TV feels is an accurate cross section of our culture. One senior, one black, one nervous, one over confident, one rebel, one starving, one with attitude and of course, one with boobs. I actually heard several artists roll over in their graves.… Continue reading… 8 comments

Dinner at Andy's House

Topics: 'Andy Warhol', 'pop art', inspiration

Image(right): Campbell's Soup Can, Andy Warhol, 1964 Artists don't usually just pick their ideas out of thin air. There's usually a number of influences that are absorbed and mulled around before the links are found that enable the creation of a new piece of art. For instance, just how did Andy Warhol come to focus upon the humble Campbell's Soup Can? Maybe it had something to do with his Mother... Continue reading… 2 comments

This was the title of a fascinating documentary I watched last night that followed the "career" of the then four year old artist Marla Olmstead. (pictured at right) The toddler was producing abstract paintings of remarkable quality and sensitivity. The canvases attributed to Marla would be significant no matter what the age of the artist, however, the fact that she was so young certainly added to the sensational aspect with which her story was pursued.… Continue reading… 2 comments
