o - went to this opening, it was opticular... optastic even, like joseph alberts cumming down your throat.

triple diesel said...

Yes, it's really optastic, but not as politically real as Thomas Hirschhorn.

(ha ha, just a joke)

gimme a break. Albers cumming down my throat would be more like Morris Louis. This is like every design treacher I've had cumming in his 3rd wife. and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

no-where-man said...

did you see these live? hit it up, the scale is everything.

flesheater99 said...

didn't see it live but I guarantee you taking Albers load would be a little more eyepopping...and make for a better story.

I allways forget the difference between tint and shade (lefty loosey rightey tightey), but I think these are tint-tastic.

Some of the paintings in the show set up this opposition where a color bar is perpendicular to its compliment.

This show is like watching paint dry without the excitement of evaporation.

zipthwung said...

i mean parallel....parallel...perpendicular is a right angle...god I'm so stupid.

Bubbles said...

Painter, your jpeg curation is great. This above the Handelman. You are smart.

Seeing them all through the link no-where-man left was very helpful. I like a lot.

no-where-man said...

heh, i was playing with talking all the jpegs off the site, putting them in order on a time line and putting fades between them - it makes good video - swear there is a story. its a "beautiful mind"

the larger the less 'napkin' with the Rosmarin... digital porthole

I liked the physicality of these in person: they're really well-made. But for me, somehow, they don't push the opticality into an interesting enough place. I was thinking about Bridget Riley's work, and how each of her paintings has its own kind of optical color glow which almost projects out from the canvas. Also, each painting has its own visual idea, and each one feels like a singular exploration. These don't quite do that for me; they have a little bit of sameness to them.

You know those billboards where there are three images sliced up and on rotating triangles so that it ...rotates the images? Remembere when people used that for art? Or where you have an accordioned surface so that from one angle you see one image and from another angle you see...another image?

I like that.

Ok, also I liked a beautifull mind, and I enjoy finding patterns, but what do these paintings have to do with that really? I mean Arabic allover patterns are cooler, and actually you could get some academic to attach political freight to it...

or you could be an african american doing P and D...
or
oh fuck it.

no-where-man said...

sorry that was about finding patterns in the jpg's.

zipthwung said...

nwm -you mean when you enlarge a jpg, say to like ten feet high? The artifacting stuff? Or like when you compress a jpg a lot?

I get the computer monitor - or flatscreen - the rgb grid.

Hans said...

I find it fascinating. It's about light.
What size is it ?

no-where-man said...

60 x 60 inches,

my god u really laid into zac, he must have loved that, i heard he is doing quite well... - what makes your pussy throb? the drawings or porn? i don't see that anyone went into that, it is an important part of his work.

i just started lookin at pattens since when i came on which was the Bas,

zipthwung said...

additive color to depict subtractive color....yeah thats light allright.

Anyone read the Da vinci code? Solving Fermats last theorem? The story of pythagoras? Archimedes last screw?

bees_in_a_hive said...

Kind of cool.

John Maeda makes 'art' out of his own infatuation with numbers -- but you can hang his pieces in your foyer, cuz they're not made of paint. And, his has no histrorical relation to op-art -- too bad for him.

He's trying, but he's not quite accepted as a fine artist. But I respect his fascination with numbers, and how he tries to transpose this fascination into the visual realm.

I was once a programmer, myself, and saw the beauty of numbers when certain pi calculations used for animation could only be corrected by brute force. I then left math for the mathematicians, and went back to painting. And I admit to hiding easter eggs in my client's software.

Sorry this ain't no Chartres Cathedral but it's pretty and makes for a rewarding headache. But I can tell they are pretty.

...We want our Dreams and our Mathematics...

no-where-man said...

it is all at some level abstract.

zipthwung said...

At some level its all too real.

this stuff looks kind of uninteresting in a trapper keeper kind of way, but not a hip trapper keeper. Kind of interesting to compare to new hipster neo-geo op art type shit a la barry mcgee or those ex forcefield guys who had that revolving circle show at dietch or derrain drop
