Lara Marie Schoenhals: After seeing Joan Baez and Julia Roberts come on stage at T Swift's Santa Clara show, I came up with some predictions for the random cameos that might occur at her upcoming LA concerts.

Zombies on the Walls: Why Does So Much New Abstraction Look the Same? By Jerry Saltz
Everyone will instantly stop making the sort of painting that was an answer to a question that no one remembers asking—and it will never be talked about again.

Travis Jeppesen: Art in the dark
I invested in a full-spectrum sunlamp, the kind that is supposed to brighten your spirits and magically imbue you with summer energy if you just sit before it for half an hour each day. The question I always got was, “Does it really work?” I never knew what to reply. “Well, I haven’t killed myself yet, it must be doing something.”

Classic GB Nicole Eisenman '96
Nicole Eisenman @ Jack Tilton in 1996 shows one of the best paintsmiths of the time having a bang-up show and living the art life to the hilt. Or Tilt. She'd somehow hit a rough patch with a lover with a lease in her name and Nicole without. So, she's living in the gallery for the month of her show.

Als der Künstler Georg Baselitz im SPIEGEL vor kurzem die Ansicht äußerte, Frauen malten nicht so gut wie Männer, löste das in amerikanischen Kunst-Blogs eine Debatte aus, ebenso im nahen Österreich, auch die Briten zürnten. In Deutschland nahm man das so hin.

100 Little Deaths by Tom Sanford
“As the drawings of those who passed away in 2012 accumulated, I realized that to see them all together would be very powerful. Installed together I hope that my 100 Little Deaths shows the immensity of what we lose every year. The wall of drawings becomes a mausoleum for 2012.” Among the portraits represented are political figures; music legends; cultural icons of our youth such as Davy Jones and Donna Summer; noteworthy artists, Thomas Kinkade, Franz West, and Will Barnet; publishers; religious leaders; comediennes; and news worthy individuals such as Rodney King and Joe Paterno. The list goes on.

Arghhh. This is soul-less, post-minimal, dreck.
The Whitney gave Wade Guyton a solo show? Arghhh. This is soul-less, post-minimal, dreck. Nothing more than a signifier of "good-taste" and "high-art". How much of this garbage can exist in the world? That this is the kind of work that gets accolades is beyond deflating and discouraging. HAVING NONE OF IT. This is a well trod path and we know exactly where it leads.

The Indefinable Qualities of Images
Here's an image of water ice in a cup. Now, while it's suitable for a description of summer in West Philadelphia to document some of the love letters stuff, I missed the shot. This image is lacking the vulgarity I was looking for. But how can you describe an abstract image as vulgar? And how can I know with certainty that this image is removed from what I want to show? Because I most certainly do know. When I was making it, I was looking to show something disconcerting in the image, which in and of it's self is fucking nuts because it's a cup of water ice. While the image could be seen as visually engaging, it's completely benign. I try to keep a big part of my working self unconscious, but at the same time I'm fascinated by what abstraction says to me, and how I know when it's done and is doing it's job.

Negative Man, Cathy Joritz, 16mm, 2min, 1985
Un film qui se veut plein d'humour et d'irrévérence sur la vengeance. J'ai gratté un commentaire visuel taquin directement à même la pellicule, sur l'image de l'homme négatif, pendant qu'il parle de choses «inimportantes». Pour moi, l'homme négatif est un symbole de tous les hommes qui dominent notre monde. Et comme tel, il obtient ce qu'il mérite.

A Painting by Joy Garnett
A wonderful painting by Joy Garnett based on a photo from the China Yangtse Three Gorges Development Corporation website.

"Close to 100 official images document China’s monumental construction project; on some level the source images recall the grandeur of traditional Chinese landscape painting, but they are actually closer to the candy-coated kitsch of calendar art: landscape at the crossroads of nationalist propaganda and eco-rhetoric."
