Isthmus Aesthetics?

The word torpor best describes the current state of the art world. Lassitude, sluggishness, inertia*. We have been lingering at this impasse for far too long. How long? I figure that the beginning of the 90's was the end...

Everything is Everything

Back in February of this year, Lily Lampe wrote a very interesting article for the Brooklyn Rail about painting and the "painterly". Intelligent and interesting, the article is a tour de force. She had compared and contrasted three recent exhibitions...

Spain: The Opening week for "Immanence"

I streamed reports of my recent travel to Spain via Facebook first before this weblog. I wanted my FB audience to be informed of what had happened during and around my opening at Miguel Marcos Gallery... I suppose that since...

Lines, Drawn.

This morning we awoke to the horrific news that Paris' Charlie Hebdo was attacked, 12 killed and 20 wounded. Below the fold, I'm reposting my 2006 blogpost about the spark of 12 cartoons, the recurring clash between freedom of...

Yes, yes, I have been quiet this month in this blog. Silence is my natural repose and volubleness is a higher energy state that I can surge into but mania always ebbs. The first week after the opening was...

You Will Know

The words floated up from the depths in my mind. One word at a time. You. Will. Know....

"Where there is freedom, there is happiness."

I've been surfing the web for information and background* on the unfolding crisis in Ukraine and I came across this video. The description from the video: We spend the early 2014 together with the protesters in Kyiv on the...

10 Years Ago This Week

Corbusian Wellsprings

Artist, Soldier (part1)

Just when I thought I could get back into the studio and squirt tubes of oil, now comes a hurricane called Sandy. It's hard for me to believe the news hype. Sometimes, I think there should be a law...

Sean Cassidy

I went to UC Irvine to visit Sean Cassidy's studio. A longtime Chinatown artist, he decided to jump into the bootcamp of art grad school. He didn't have to, but he will be better for it. The students get...
