I did this painting in Graduate School. It’s mixed media on some wood from an old barn in upstate NY that my dad put together for me.  I miss it.

Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time

May 31, 2010

I really enjoyed this 2001 documentary, I recommend checking it out. Here are some images of Andy Goldsworthy’s lovely pieces but I don’t think you can really get a full grasp for them unless you watch the film. (Thanks Mike for introducing me to this.)

I took the above image from the site Wooster Collective, check it out.

Here’s a piece from the documentary:

Here’s a film of some of his pieces:

One Great Day with Bob Gruen.

April 25, 2010

Today has been one fun filled day. I woke up, got to see a polar bear and turtles at the Worcester EcoTarium.  I then trotted off to the Worcester Art Museum to buy Mike’s and my membership. At the Worcester Art Museum there’s an exhibit going on called “Who Shot Rock n’ Roll.”  If you live in Central Mass go check it out, its great.

I also got to see BOB GRUEN give a talk on his experience as one of the greatest photographers of Rock n’ Roll history (I’ve featured Bob previously on radioloveless after I went to see his instillation at the MoMa). He seemed so sweet and so down to earth with cute jokes and heartfelt stories about some of the musicians he has worked with. He is probably most famous for filming John Lennon.  There is a beautiful collection of his pictures that you can view here and his website is here. This is one of my favorite photos he did of John, which he showed today called “statue of liberty”.

After his talk I was so happy I hardly could speak, but I really wanted to go up to him and tell him how much I love his stuff.  So I waited in line shaking and sweating and I got this photo with him.

So happy.

So I first saw this photographer’s pieces on the blog all the mountains. I thought I would feature him here for Art Wednesday (even though I know its not Wednesday) because I really do adore his romantic, whimsical, and cleverly odd photos. I’ve included some here, but definitely take a peak at his website, Tim Walker Photography.

I Love my Balcony

April 7, 2010

Here’s what wikipedia says about Balconies:
Balcony (from Italian: balcone, scaffold; cf. Old High German balcho, beam, balk; probably cognate with Persian term بالكانه bālkāneh or its older variant پالكانه pālkāneh[1])
Here’s mine:

Arty isn’t it?

Francis Bacon

March 31, 2010

I first saw one of his pieces a couple of years ago when I visited the Des Moines Art Center. It’s the painting in panel A featured below entitled Study of Velasquez’a Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953). I featured Velasquez’s portrait in panel A to the left of Bacon’s. I was stunned by Bacon’s painting, it blows you away in person. The painting is HUGE and SCARY. It’s one of my favorites because it evokes you to want to run the hell away from it. He did another one that I featured in panel B that’s also awesome called Three Studies for Figures at the Base of the Crucifixion done in 1944. The Irish born Francis Bacon was born in 1904 and passed on in 1992.
