Horses, cats and earth tones, looks like we’ve got a trifecta winner here! (Just need to get some sex stuff in there somehow.)
Kalm James considering the figures in this painting sex stuff would be pretty wrong. Rothenberg?
I think KJ was arguing FOR sex. I agree. Rothenberg has sex, right? Anthropomorphized horses? Wild Horses?Not my dealio Im not into the rolling stones, maybe just Paint it black.Hoof vs claw!That horse has nooooo chance.
Brian Calvin's new work looks good. I wish I was in NYC to see it. I like this clawhoof painting. The horse's fur looks sweaty, coated in stable mire. The cat, literary. If hoof battled claw, breasts would win. Breasts always win.
coming up with your own ideas is hard work.http://www.markmooregallery.com/files/f7592417.jpgthis sort of article is fluff, but it points out the attempts to differentiate indivuduals from the crowd.TO create (manufacture) originality in a sea of derivation.Allison is au currant, no doubt, but her sort of Karen Kilimnik dealio is done to death and not in a regional charming sort of way - same goes for Nicole Maynard.Maybe its different outside of NY, but I cant figure out how to get the exploding collar off.BTW - in that article it features Jennifer Steinkamp, who is APROPRIATING canned software effects.In the same way JS is APPROPRIATING A COMEDIC TONE which is not anyone's property, but should be addressed with regards to her ouvre. Does she KNOW shes part of a long TRADITION OF COMEDIANS?SHe must - and therefore we must conclude she has an AGENDA.Dont fall asleep.
looks like the kitty is rideing the horse, and the horse does not seem to be bucking.Wild horses couldnt drag me awayWild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away
I thought of Rothenberg's bisected horses and I like this one a bit better. More mysterious in a good way. Without the pussy.
In a way, dont we anthropomorphize paintings? It has a skin, a skeleton, and its about my height. Lets get it on.martin had this link on his siteMartin has a leak in his ceiling that looks like Jesus. Dont we all, in some way?
You will no doubt recall:Marcia Tucker, from Bad Painting 1978: "The freedom with which these artists mix classical and popular art-historical sources, kitsch and traditional images, archetypal and personal fantasies, constitutes a rejection of the concept of progress per se. . . . It would seem that, without a specific idea of progress toward a goal, the traditional means of valuing and validating works of art are useless. Bypassing the idea of progress implies an extraordinary freedom to do and to be whatever you want. In part, this is one of the most appealing aspects of "bad" painting - that the ideas of good and bad are flexible and subject to both the immediate and the larger context in which the work is seen." Not to flog a dead horse, Im more into seal clubbing myself.
is that a cat or an owl, or what the.....?
by the way if this is from california it must be influenced by (or associated with) mari eastman.
i like that this image calls for the use of imagination around things that are real. or, the putting together of familiar things that don't mix. i'd like to see a painting of the horse & cat's love-child.
This relates to the work of Joe Andoe, another horse artist who did very well for Joseph Helman Gallery. When compared to the horse paintings of Rothenberg, Andoe stuck with a fairly realistic rendering in a limited palette, nice horsey pictures, fairly large but slickly painted avoiding the raw feel and abstraction of the Rothenbergs. Maybe sex wasn’t the right word, rather sexy, thongs and spiked heels, sparkeling blush.
daddy, the horsie ated my cat
this is a really interesting format. I'm amazed by how many people dialogue on these images.Thought some of you might be interestingin peeking at my ongoing experiment with using the blog as an art mediumLately it's a dialgue with fluxushttp://www.futureofthebook.org/drop by commentcollaborateetc.
love cats alex. this is best served as space to try to understand the image at hand.
That horse is weird enough with out the cat...in fact I think the cat ruins it. Although the picture of the pony smelling the cat did help me understand it better.
alex,blogs are interesting formats, yes, andas far as mediums go, blogs are successfulbecause they further extend the transparency that the internet first proposed, developedand revolutionized. The problem with thesite you posted is that it practices the exactopposite. Couldn't find any usefulness in it,let alone a place to post, explore and exploit.(i gave it 20 seconds). Please tell your organization to re-readJakob Nielsen's books for a lesson on whytransparency is so *key* to a successful medium.It is ironic, though, that here is a groupso involved with the virtual -- yet committedto the physical. In essence -- the future of thebook remains on paper. (well until we come upan interface better than iTunes/Audible.Until then, ruminate, if you willon the cat.
The Sasnal image is a little slower, better--a less junk OMG-production read. I'm dreaming better 'ism' or better canvas/cavonous dichotomy where junk and the steam obliterate each other--the twist of apéritif--where the after-the-night-swizzle gets found--in pocket.I noticed the twist back of the head to meet some structure concern and painting sense (nice). The scratchy cat is scratchy pulling a scratchy hole in the image picture plane (clever). Next time. probably, it's better to pull the whole deal off--or the next time after that!If horoscopes are read right, there's good possibility ahead--if not hard liquor!
My first thought was it reminded me of Fuselimeets RyderDon't get reference to rothenberg or other more contemporary artists.
