Pose Maniacs.

Painted measles is what one hostile critic called the efforts of the Italian followers of French Neo-Impressionism.

This is nothing like art school, which was talkative and trendy. At Chinese University of Hong Kong, [Laurie] Chung's instructors taught her the ideas behind the modernist revolution and global contemporary art. But when they sent her to her studio to work, she says she didn't know what to do. Jen Graves on the Gage Academy, a realist atelier in Seattle. My interest is piqued for obvious reasons. (AJ)

This week's theme at A Word A Day was words that have aeiou in order once each, from which I learned caesious (SEE-zee-uhs), meaning bluish or grayish green.

It's the first time I worked on something that really frightened me, which could have killed someone, Paluska begins. His audience murmurs appreciatively. (AJ)

Uh, Franklin, aren't you getting married, like, tomorrow?

Shouldn't you be, you know, otherwise engaged right about now?

Or do Zen types not sweat that sort of thing?

There's a dire promulgation of Miami art criticism as of late. I came across a review today for Francine's Spiegel's painting at Bas/Fisher online at what is called Ignore Magazine ...thought it may be of interest here if anyone's as bored as I am. And pray to tell, if anyone knows the meaning of the headline, "Marc Summers' Biggest Fantasy" leave me an explantory crumb, I'll no doubt be checking this tomorrow. Oh, and Spiegel's works are not safe for work.
Here's the url, http://ignoremagazine.com/discourse/art/spiegal/index.html

I'm surprised. i actually enjoyed reading this review. it was very colorful, if graphic. i can let that pass, since spiegel's work, which is so-so, deals with sexuality. i also entered marc summers into wikipedia. he was the host of a kid's show called double dare.

Thanks Franklin, I will try to use caesious at my cocktail party this evening. A lovely word without a doubt.

Clearly the line between art and parody no longer exists.

am i the only one surprised that hernan bas would show art so tasteless at his and fisher's gallery? i've never been, but i didn't expect to see such vulgar works. spiegel's work is very amateurish. it belongs in a comic book, not on a respected gallery's walls. no wonder many in miami circles are saying hernan's time has passed since his salad days with fredric snitzer.

Dias and @dias [update: and On spiegel!] are the same browser and IP address. Is Ignore so hard up for attention that it has to sock puppet a conversation on Artblog.net to get page views? And Kyle, if that's you, OMG.

Yes Franklin,
Spammers are evil, however I got wiped out when attempting to be sincere and of eloquence. I will try again, which may give them the whole picture, for which a crumb they are dire to receive.

Ref #3
If I may offer some insight, which may even clarify… that they break up their ornate headdress worn as a symbol of sovereignty, as a symbol of social or cultural victory, success or high achievement. Delirious quips!

Gage founder: "There would be several ateliers as headstrong as the Aristides, clashing in the hallways like the Jets and the Sharks..."

I'd hardly call that a rivalry. Winnipeg's last year in the NHL was in 96 and San Jose's first was 1991.

(Heh.)

Opie, Ref. #5

One thing is to dwell on consequences both personal and political. Another is to go beyond the limit or range, for example of thought or belief, quality or achievement, and to exist above and apart from the material world in mysterious and beautiful ways.

That is so true.

Just ran across a magazine cartoon. It's titled The Opinion of the Patron, and shows a burly, puffed-up "major collector" type next to a diffident, scrawny artist, whose painting is being scrutinized. The Patron says, "Well, my boy, it's not bad, your landscape. It's just that your tree trunks are a bit, how shall I say...a bit wooden." And who says art criticism is dead?
