Morris Louis: Art Supplies Edition

I was doing a bit of research on the web earlier today when I stumbled over this letter from Morris Louis to Rene Bocour. It’s from the National Archives Leonard Bocour Collection. It’s essentially an order from Louis, but at the same time it’s a complaint letter. Rene Bocour and Sam Golden supplied a paint […]

Robert Fripp – Let the Power Fall

One of the things I really appreciate in the work of Robert Fripp is the structure that oversee’s his work while at the same time there are clearly areas that allow for the occasional “happy accident” or just enough looseness to allow for new things to be found and explored inside the work. I recently […]

East Coast / West Coast

I’m currently in two shows that are both pretty interesting – funny enough they are on opposite coasts, so if you can see one, you will probably miss the other one unless you are some jet setting international man or woman of mystery. Material World at Art DC in Hyattsville, MD is Curated by Stephen […]

Blinky Palermo at the Hirshhorn

I found myself in DC this weekend and early Sunday morning found me at the Hirshhorn for the much-anticipated Palermo retrospective. The timing of this travelling exhibit is just about right as many people are now directly or obliquely referencing Palermo – he is clearly one of the artists the current zeitgeist is looking at. […]

Art Beat on WAMU/NPR

Yesterday I was mentioned by WAMU on the ‘Art Beat’ With Sean Rameswaram. It’s a really nice segment on my work and current show. Thanks to all the WAMU staff and Sean for putting it together. I’ve taken the liberty to post the segment here on the blog but I really think you might also […]

Nice write up in Elan Magazine

Recently I was contacted by Donna Cedar-Southworth about an interview for Elan Magazine. While sitting in the video lounge at Art Basel we discussed some of the things that matter most to me in making my art, we would follow up later working on getting the details right. I’m really happy with the resulting interview, […]

A thought about the internal politics surrounding Wojnarowicz, Clough and the Smithsonian

There is a scene in the movie Patton that shows Patton about to make a political play to become the Commander-in-Chief of the invasion of Normandy. In it he is addressing his aide-de-camp and says this little line. “The event will be social, and by social I mean political.” I think this is one of […]

A bit of media coverage…

It’s always a nice way to wake up in the morning and find yourself in the paper – unless you’ve done something wrong of course. This morning the Jessica Roake at the Washington Post Express was nice enough to include me in her article on the Corcoran’s latest show: Washington Color and Light. Below is […]
