nice quilt designs
Pattern and Decorative, yeah, I thought it was time for a reevaluation. Any glitter, crushed pearl or gold leaf?
One of the great reasons to get into the arts in the first place is so you can ignore football and all that stupidity. Not for me...
I dont know what the football player represents but the last show I saw had birds and stuff. THey were smaller, and it was in a smaller gallery, so I guess they weren't worth as much, but I think they were better.welcome to the floating worldIs Chie Fueki a football fan? My guess is that its more a bridging of the cultures sort of thing. Multicultural stuff.One last thing - Im not a fan of pattern and decoration even though I like patterns. Its a trap I dont want to get into. What if all you really do is design paisley patterns?
cardboard guitar anyone?Spectacle.
This figure is actually a body-builder and the pose is known as a full frontal lat spread, one of the four or five mandatory poses for IFBB (International Federation of Body Builders) competition.
Tan.Hibiscus. Cannabus.Hawaii? Haowlie. Sun Tan.Ganguro.
This looks like something that would hang in a pipe shop in the Haight-Ashbury.
someone's gotta kick 'sisterrye' out of here. she has no idea what she's talking about.
thats not nice.....Would these same criticisms go for Tomaselli as well?

Yes, Tomaselli is not immune. He has assistants so no "obsessive" credit like Yayoi kusama or a tibetan/hopi mandala painter. I mena obsessive just doesnt cut it - otherwise every stoner with a trip book would be on the market right?Thou shall shit it out.Calvinism.Hedonism.I said it once, Ill say it againI like the quiltsof gees bend.here is a cool quilt.In some countries of Europe and in Japan, chrysanthemums are symbolic of death and are only used for funerals or on graves. In the United States, the flower is usually seen as more positive and cheerful.subversive
Arts and Crafts movement was in large part a reaction to industrialization, if looked at on the whole, it was neither anti-industrial nor anti-modern. Some of the European factions believed that machines were in fact necessary, but they should only be used to relieve the tedium of mundane, repetitive tasks. arts and craftsis it time?
worth seeing in person, there beady ground is highly labor intensive. nice david salle in the back room.
She celebrates muscled man... and girlifies [sp?] him......
More from the 'teachings of matthew barney' not all muscle men but sports if i recall correctly.heh thx painter considering my approch to the Artworld the "sneaky" shot is spot on. - flattered ;)
It would be an over simplification to think that there’s something unmasculine about the decorative. In Asian culture the male is often the “Peacock” spending much time, effort and money to create elaborate costumes. I believe it was the Dorian Greeks who first introduced the idea of the austere as being “masculine” about 1500 B.C. The feminization of the decorative might have been their way of denigrating the Persians who were known for their extravagant dress and ornamentation. The first “girlyman.” There were wonderful male artists like Robert Zakanich, Robert Kushner, Kim MacConnel and Ned Smyth that were in on the first wave of the P&D movement. The great women of the movement like Miriam Schapiro and Joyce Kozloff would probably not have gotten the same amount of attention if it, P&D, had been seen as a strictly feminist tendency. Surprisingly most of these folks are still grinding away at the same thing but these days in obscurity.Time for a survey and review of the influence they’ve had on current practitioners. This artist Chie Fueki in the “Boone-docks” makes me think other people might be thinking likewise.
Is Chinese art a hot growth a
ooops my bad, should read" Is Chinese art a hot growth area in a superheated art market?"
what does chinese art have to do with a japanese artist?
I like pregnant women.
A body builder looks up into the sky out of his existance cube. What are these strange dots of light? Why is my roof missing, and wait, am I made of flowers. I thought it was water.Curiouser and Curiouser.
KJ good point about the cultural/ history aspect.As he's outside the box... maybe he's a gift [wrapping paper patterns et al].Bodybuilding's not my thing , so I go with "denigration".
I always felt like P&D was some marketing strategy by Holly Solomon. An excuse for some loud paintings? Didnt seem significant at all.Miriam SHapiro to James Gobel...that's important work.
closeup, no doubt there were market forces at work, as well as a change in the attitudes towards the dominant movements of the 60s which were Pop and Minimalism. P&D was a way to use the grid of the Minimalists with a nod to the ‘Low arts” and crafts that women and designers had been producing for centuries. I think the level of “multi-cultural” influences and pluralism might have weakened its status as a formalistic classification. In New York it seems, people need one fearless leader, one doctrine, one goal and one party line. That’s why we have such huge crowds hanging out on the “cutting edge”.

can we stop with the stupid quotes?this is a forum to talk about art.leave your quotes on your own blog.
Decinlevin. THanks for your interest. Please say something interesting. Otherwise here are a few suggested topics:1) Is pattern and decoration rigourous?2) Chevrons- like or dislike?4) What do the Opium Wars have to do with anything?5) Does Japan have influences or is she visionary?
forget topics. I'm tellin yall now. INVEST in China if you have the money. Japanese art or no japanese art.Your children will thank you for it.
peggie--we are all investing in china, whether we want to or not
Closeuup, don't know how to take that,but for those of you who want not...You can blame our american finacial complexfor that -- a debt-centric institution that valuesspeculative investment more than it valuesthe production and circulation of real goods.Funny how art mirrors real life.We are beyond the point, closeuup, ofreturning to the time when our productionwas greater-to-or-equal-to our debt-spending.I'm cynical in this view, yes.In order to get out:1) Less speculation2) More institutional value on sweat-equity.I think this should (or will) be reflected in our art marketonce we realize that our production capacity(thought as well as material) has been diminishedby the shadow of speculation and it's methodologies.In essence, we tend to invest on things thathave not been produced yet. We build confidencein innovation, yet we relegate the physical infrastructuresthat can test and build upon ideas to the 3rd world.Those infrastructures are the key to innovation.American industry has, in effect, 'forgotton' howto build and test things cuz the builders and testershave long been farmed out oversesas.The masters money may be here (um...really?)but the masters tools are elsewhere.Finance -- the financial institution -- with itsspeculative values -- is the American Emporerwho will one day have no clothes.
Postscript:Investing is fine -- I can do that.But investing in Investing is a recipe for a logical crash.But please, beefore investing overseas, pay back all your credit card debt, pllleze, as a gesture ofdefiance toward your emporer.
saw this in person, was really astounding up close....Im still not 100% with the subjects and from far away something becomes too static, perhaps in the composition but all in all nice show
