My my. I guess the Guardian is cool, but the way those writers "can" things. Ugh. At least she thinks zip is funny. Too legit to quit...

congrats painter.
and to the ever colorful carnivorous side-kick, the Lagrangian Fibration of the
Hyper-Kahler Manifold kind, oft-scarf-wrenching, a honey includes zip, the sweet and sour of 'all of you in us', for making this a fun place to come by on the occassion... if only it were more ITA... does it all really exist?

The Guardian, phew! High praise indeed.

JpegCritic said...

If you bought: "The Guardian"
we recommend: "Modern Painters"

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

That has a nice ring to it.

Off the top though I enjoy the locust swarms and the sun and moon turning colors. Its pretty dramatic and gives you a real feeling that things are going to change.

But my ego just got so heavy it fell through the grocery sack.

oh and nomad is an island.

Yeah you can tell Hönig follows the whole thing really closely. She’s probably a bit of a painter as well - little kittens at the wheel of monster trucks or something (Laura Owens/Ashley).
But what cinches the thing for her is knowing who some of the tags are – their identities in the NYartworld.
Dig?
On your knees Hönig!
The deal is really that she’s an insider too and the fun is in knowing ‘who’ is really saying what.
Insider trading is always the most profitable, right?
But my impression is it’s not who says it, but what is said. And the jokes are fine and often painfully in, but what keeps others reading is descriptions and comparisons of the posted work.
You don’t have to know whose tag is who to see whether it makes sense – surely that’s the greater attraction?
The fact that just as many tags are anonymous or remote surely amplifies the point.

Reflection in some way from a smaller vein of a larger media artery, albeit still a digital realm. No Gutenberg ink spills... yet.

I'm in the UK and have been visiting the sight for a year or so...... its the best way to see whats happening across the pond

no-where-man said...

not to hate the game but if you knew who some of the affront mentioned were you would be far less impressed.

familiarity breeds contempt.

"Speaking as a veteran newspaper critic who started a blog four years ago, I suspect that Mr. Schickel hasn't looked at very many artblogs. I, on the other hand, read dozens of them each week. In fact, I now spend more time reading art-related blog postings than print-media reviews. Increasingly, they're sharper, livelier and timelier than their old-media competition.
