sugimoto at the Hirshhorn

This is a brilliant show. I didn't get Sugimoto's work until today. Seeing the photographs together has a huge impact. And the installation, especially of the Buddhas and the Seascapes, is nothing short of exquisite. I won't say more, because the initial view is so powerful, I'd hate to ruin it for anyone.

In about half an hour Sugimoto and curator Kerry Brougher will discuss the show.

yay

yay, snow! Pretty pretty snow!

We always get dire predictions, and the entire metro area rushes to the stores and cleans them out of milk and bread, and schools cancel ahead of time, and then nothing happens.

This time, there's a payoff! SNOW!

Okay, not art related. But I love snow. Makes me happy. Especially since I don't have to leave the house until tomorrow and can admire it through the windows.

Sorry, dealing with some health issues and haven't been keeping up with the art.

Been reading about the culture of altar-building, especially among women. Interesting stuff.

Jerry Salz on Andrea Zittel : A Thorn Tree in the Garden

Also, Nam June Paik died recently. His Video Flag at the Hirshhorn never ceases to fascinate me - or maybe hypnotise me. Good thing I'm not epileptic.

At NYT: Computer Analysis Suggests Paintings are not Pollocks. Wherein a physicist uses fractals to analyze works attributed to Jackson Pollock. Edward Winkleman has an essay, which I haven't had time to read.

Congrats to Edward as well for making the October 2005 Young Galleries supplement to Art Press. I just saw this the other day, so it's a bit late...

another weird artist

I have a soft spot for weird, bad art.

See The Anguish.
