Rachell SumpterRichard Heller Gallery2525 Michigan Ave. B-5aSanta Monica, CAThis is a show I saw on my trip, that I liked.

Whoa. Did Painter just actually enter the dialogue 'round here? I chose a good day to stop by!By the way..I miss you Painter...
painter should enter the dialogue!
...did Painter mean:"This is a show I saw on my trip, that I liked" = I liked my trip...or I liked this show on my trip?
I think the comma separates liked from trip. Trip is interesting. Trip the light fantastic.I'm going with journey instead of trip from now on, as in, "I am journeying out of the house tomorrow, bro".I'm totally into the dialogue, as you can see, man dude.
Barnaby the thing about your paintings is that pale flushed red flesh just after sex dealio. Can't hang that on the wall without an original Frazetta to balance to mojo.One day.
maybe ill start painting Frazettas.This dialogue stuff is cool.
Frazetta is cool.
speaking of appropriation:marclayhahahhahahathats why you dont put product out there until its sold or something.Lori Precious are you listening?red rover man, red rover.
I could have done a p'shop collage, really i could have, but i think zip owns that, so I did this instead
I love Rachel's work.
When will the art students find another artist to imitate? Do I even need to say who? Maybe they should smarten up and copy dead artists like all of the other contemporary artists. Gallerists and curators take note...
Lily said...When will the art students find another artist to imitate?Well is it "art students" copying other artists? Or is it a collective movement? I've seen this type of argument here before and I think it's not a very well thought out argument at best. And the "catty" tone of that kind of argument kind of stinks of possible sour grapes.I mean there is Hannah Hoch and there is Kurt Schwitters and really tons of others. There is Warhol, there is LIchtenstein, there is Sister Corita Kent etc.Maybe Sumpter and other artists today are actually experiencing and being influenced all by the same people and vibes and have a silmilar outlook and result in their art because? Much like I might suspect what happened to artists in all previous movements. There is nothing wrong with that.I'm not necessarily saying this painting is the greatest thing ever. I like it fine, but I don't see anything groundbreaking coming out of her contribution. So I do kind of think she will probably just be one of those countless "hangers on" of the movement when the history has been written ...unless she really starts pushing things further than this. But, it's not bad. And I don't think she is simply "copying" what's hip.
