oh its cute! for once the super washy pastel transmigrating water colours feel less then tragiclly subhurban, or skratch that reverse it - but it still works.
If you like this artist you might also like:Hillary HarknessMarcel DzamaSOme others I cant remember. Sorry. Maybe its because they dont show at zwirner and Boone.Hillary Harkness paints better and invests more time in the work. Lots more time.What is a complex visual language? Because Amy Morken has one, according to the press release.I notice this a lot. Artsits develop complex visual languages in Grad school, or even junior high - although most of the visual language means the same thing. I drew conan obsessively. No neck, lots of gore.A complex visual language should be able to express a full range of emotions in a nuanced way.Otherwise, why make it comlex? Why not make a simple visual language pricks like me can understand?
Like I said regarding the horse and cat painting, get some sex stuff happenin. Arshile Gorky biomorphic shapes in thongs and heels. Jackson Pollock splatters in pushup bras. Joan Mitchell hedges with garter belts. Those magentas are burning a hole in my monitor! Pinks and yellows, deKoo’s faves
herehereherehereI could go on.I was watching this twilight zone episode last night where this "ugly" girl is transformed into a pretty clone.Rod Sterling may have been commenting on something. "THe best part is, I look just like you!"

This is such a good interview/history. I suggest it to people too young to have been there. John Giorno is a historian I would believe. Real deal. KJ sorry you are sum kinda yuppie/neocon...http://www.leslielohman.org/newsletter/No11/giornopart1.htm
First response- without checking out other work.I like it, it's very pretty. Then I started noticing all of these hip trendy images. I kept seeing them! People in underwhere, animal masks, a deer, a gun, flowers?, skeleton (my friend said you can always put a skeleton in a painting and it will be better). I don't know, I am serously wondering if it's a comment on contemporary art.Other than this quick thought, I still think it's more visually compelling then.....other paintings.I feel that I am trying to figure out what it means but don't really care.
closeuup, thanks for the compliments, one can only wish. Actually I’d be more of a paleo-con. But once again thanks. (I’ll check out this Giorno cat)
:) what's wrong with w-burg one of my roomies wears those socks! is Grand Wood illustration - Balthus pornographic? i heart the palate.. dress u up in my luv.
The hot palette is offset by the abundance of white, and the black and white panda head.Those trendy images, like deer antlers, etc... have been around for over 500 years, soccer socks excluded.Something about the palette and the washiness makes it seem more sincere than an Urban Outfitters illustration. I'm not sure why. It's in the subtle differences.I'm reminded of Kitaj and Kandinsky.
Pictures are great.This picture could use some heaver line weights and a little gesso/goache erasure and so on and so forth. Why not? It is allreay arting it up. Might as well go the distance.Or it could say the same thing using a style that sets itself apart from the fey, the antiheroic, the slacker, and the geek chik. It could use some more explicit if ambiguous narrative, too. Water buffalo? Hippos?
I like this Amy Morken prompting me to write this lithely ditty to reenforce I have the mind of a twelve-year-old.Clearing the throat...Rainy Soft Day Soft, Flesh with Magenta, Mist Drizzly and a dizzily colorful day to wake up to this tangle and frayIt can do you no bad, and possibly goodWhere the 'wiggles and wangles', the 'flowers and flesh' say not the last word.
That was touching.
i feel like it is not a painting best understood thru cognitive processes." I love myself; I want you to love meWhen I feel down; I want you above meI search myself; I want you to find meI forget myself; I want you to remind meI don't want anybody elseWhen I think about you I touch myselfOoh I don't want anybody else Oh no, oh no, oh no "
Thanks, no-where. I think we all speak of the pompetus of love.
Yeah, said it's all rightI won't forgetAll the times I've waited patiently for youAnd you'll do just what you choose to doAnd I will be alone again tonight my dearVerse 2:Yeah, I heard a funny thingSomebody said to meYou know that I could be in love with almost everyoneI think that people areThe greatest funAnd I will be alone again tonight my dear-loveclassic.
Alright enough with lyrics. This paintingwon't last more than half a decade.Graphic novels have better chances due totheir collectability (?)Love or no love, my dear. Sorry.We lauded hockney and left poor kitajto decay in the muck of historic mediocrityWhy? Dunno, really, but it might have somethinghaving to do with desire-wanting-resistance.In other words...Don't be so easy baby. Sweetness can only get you so far.
btw can i get your underwear on ebay?
must it be built to last? ;) ha no - if that is directed at me - but u can walk up to us in chelsea, it is a crapshoot as to what mood i am in. i have a theory about 80's lyrics being contemporary poetry.
