She just had a show uptown a couple months ago. The work has gotten a lot more abstract than this. I like the abstract stuff better, but not really one of my favorites...

w.w. said...

eesh. the dripping book freaks me out. there is a forced quality in the figuration.... i'd like to see the more abstract stuff.

fairy butler said...

no likey.

Oh I hate to be negative on someone but I felt the same aversion...there seems to be some Romantic notion of drippy, washy painting plus depressed figures which equals embarrassment on the part of this viewer. I am sorry.

fairy butler said...

i know, we are really ganging up here!! but ? i agree with mm.

I love David Zwirner and this painting reminded me of him.
I just thought this was after the party. The day after when you have to go to church.

Painter said...

oops I mean I love Daniel Richter. And Zwiner too.

mountain man said...

I love Daniel Richter too and at first glance it reminded me of it, but when you look closer it's too earnest and not as epic or something. Daniel Richter is great. But I like your interpretation.

mountain man said...

Zwirner is the dream gallery to show at. To me at least.

Painter said...

Me too.

burrito brother said...

Your dream is to give your career over to an angry german???

w.w. said...

i work at zwirner, so i thank you from the entire hardworking staff here at the gallery. but i'm not with you on d. richter.

w.w. said...

and burrito, you couldn't be more wrong. anyone should KILL to work with dz.

burrito brother said...

i don't get why people like Richter so much...
I know he's got skillz etc. but his work is so dry and suffocating.

w.w. said...

i wholeheartedly disagree about his having skillz. is that institutional disloyalty?

burrito brother said...

yes. but i'm all for that. i guess i was just being nice to the folks who like him, throwing them a bone.
Zwirner artists i do like: Pettibone, McCracken, Nordstrom & Mamma A. (sort of), De Keyser, Ruff (some of it)

w.w. said...

yeah, jockum and mamma are great. i like borremans, douglas and genzken too. pettibon was mean to me once but i still like his work.

back to this khorramian painting: please, it is burning my retinae

If you want to see her new work, plug this in...

I'm curious what people think...

fairy butler said...

bb, the new work is A LOT better but it is hard to really see on the website. the details get lost and it looks a little dark.

martin said...

i don't hate this at all. it's like a late 60's illustration of a tatooine funeral.

martin said...

by tatooine, i meant the planet luke skywalker is from. did i shut this down? sorry.

Painter said...

Martin thanks for evening it out. BB I thought I had your taste pegged down.
I picked this painting because it was so different from the rest of her work. None of which I have seen in person.

burrito brother said...

That's funny, painter. I actually own a small Khorramian, but it's minimal/abstract, so you're close... I'm a very complex brother.

martin said...

Dear Painter - I googled her to see more stuff, I think you spelled her first name wrong?

Painter said...

Thanks Martin I fixed it.

I'll buy that. Its got that Jim Dine out in the country academicism...I mean in my experience, coming from there...I joined the Rebel Aliance, and we're really into video (help me obi wan) and stuff, but I dig those old illustrations.
