I love Pthalo Blue out of the tube.
I love cerulean blue out of the tube. - This is throw down, a show down, hell no I can't slow down, Its gonna go. Drop the needle.Pthalo Cerulean?
Found this interssting as part of the almost gallery mandate. - A significant number of those represented (gallery artists)produce works that investigate the interaction of digital information and the artist’s hand. These requirements seem a little specific and a little boring. Anyone find this odd? Is this what happens when you have 500 galleries in one place?
FLIVVERi saw the new zodiac movieGuest677SalutFLIVVERi i i , i got a girlfriend, whos better than thatFLIVVERwho took the money awaaaaayFLIVVERi got a girlfriend with bows in her hairFLIVVERand nothing is better than thatFLIVVERthe zodiac movie was like the woodward and bernstein movie - in fact there are many EEEERIE parallelsGuest677goodnight and thanks Flivver.Guest677 left the channelFLIVVERgoodnightFLIVVER10 little indians...and then there were....nine?FLIVVERso back to "all the presidents men" vs "zodiac"FLIVVERboth feature obsessed news reporters tracking down the story of a lifetime - muckraking!FLIVVERback in the day, there were these "yellow" journalists.Yellow journalism is a pejorative reference to journalism that features scandal-mongering, sensationalism, jingoism or other unethical or unprofessional practices by news media organizations or individual journalists.FLIVVERwell that stuff sells papers - look at the hearst empire - circulation battles man!!!!FLIVVERreadership!!!FLIVVERso but the Watergate scandal sold papers and made careers for the journos -FLIVVERwhich is sort of a little theme that runs through the movies - id like to see that sort of thing developed more - like in "Shattered glass" where fabulits actually CREATE stories so they can get the scoop, natchFLIVVERfabulistsFLIVVERnowadays they are called publicists or worseFLIVVERso i see that happening with artists - and i dont know what that deal is - though its been commented on, lord knows.FLIVVERbut if the whole art deal is a fabrication or even just collapes under the weight of its uperficial tissue on the scaffolding of the art martyr - well then good riddance right?FLIVVERno, evolution, not revolution. Help me deep throat, help me. email@example.com you know, help me or some shitFLIVVERat least make up a good lie.FLIVVERi mean its a self perpetuating ecology - like the lie that tells the truth, but the truth isnt out there, its made up, in here, and thats why i need outside verification - otherwise im hjust some schizo wannabe, imagine, watergate without nixon, zodiac without the killer. Nocenter man. Nada.FLIVVERi mean thomas pynchon can do it. Kurt vonnegut can do it. Barthelme, Joyce...its all there, just add water.
the blu e is the weakest part of this painting - the ferris wheel is pretty dynamite - uses some obvious tricks , but those tricks are tried AND true. Go figure. The las painting could learn a thing or two from this painting.
and this painting could learn a thing or two from James McNeil WHistler, maybe.
i mean but blurrred paint...is soooo awwweeeeasome.................ly......richteresque in the consciousness of the current historical get go.
this is not bad but its not outsidery enough for my taste.
its totally manganese blue from gamblin.
ferris wheels scare me a little. 'specially underwater ones.
General Stilwell meanwhile watches the madness as everyone heads for the coast, learning that Birkead and Stratten have crashed into the tar pits. Wild Bill follows on motorbike and, along with the tank, are doused as they crash into a paint factory and then end up striking a turpentine factory, where they are cleaned of the paint. Meanwhile Ward Douglas and the other people at his house move the gun dropped off by Tree early to the cliff and begin firing at the Japanese submarine. The Japanese return fire but soon see the Amusement park and the Ferris wheel. Believing that to be an industrial structure they destroy the Ferris Wheel as it rolls off the local pier. The tank with Wally and Tree arrive and attempts to sink the submarine, but they too are ultimately sunk as they drive to the end of the pier and are blown up. Wild Bill also drives his motorbike off the pier and swims to the Submarine, whereupon he is captured by the Japanese, who, believing their honourable mission accomplished, now return home.
sunset on the ferris wheel. zzzzzz.But I'll tell you this, man, I'll tell you this.....I'm gonna get my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.
round and round
If only I could paint like that... then what would i be?
The birds they sang at break of dayStart again, I heard them sayNor dwell on what has passed awayOr what is yet to be.The wars they will be fought againThe holy dove be caught againBought and sold and bought againUntil we set them free.Ring the bells that still can ringForget your perfect offeringThere is a crack in everythingThe light behind to see.Add up the parts, not yours the sumStrike up the march, there is no drumEvery heart to love must comeLike a refugee
Ranking of blue:1. Manganese 2. Cerulean3. Cobalt 4. Prussian 5. Ultramarine6. Pthaloout of financial reacha. lapis lazulib. azuritec. indigo (fade away)
How about "blue hue' Or is that not legitimate?This would be a blue green teal hue with some ferris. In London I've heard 'painting for pounds' and found out that the pound is not only a weight it's a currency. So for dollars how would that translate?I'm sure Barbara's work is good, and I've done a combo with these three:1. Manganese 2. Cerulean3. Cobalt and zinc, only zinc and it brought good dollars, and I liked it, still do. So on reflex: this pound of blue, this dollar of duereads perfect in its cross current.
This gallery is the worst. Makes me wonder if Mr. Steinberg's eyes are broken.
I'm in love
LUNCHTIME!!!!!!!I sense extreme ddiissillussiioonnmmeenntt....so then why not move on and just paint? Why make these pseudo-conceptual art-historical-nod-to-off-zzzzzzzz deals?Really people, art history is a blank slate at this point. Its like the art world is full of boiled frogs!
