must be spring

In NY on Saturday, everything seemed yellow!

the stories it could tell

This is one of the abandoned buildings on my campus. There is this whimsical sheet/curtain hanging in the window, glowing from the morning sun. But inside is all wreckage and dust. I wonder what the story is...

my plant keeps a growin'

I was surprised the other day to see how big my plants are getting. I've already repotted them and they are very happy in my studio. I like this picture for today because despite the fact that it is Spring, it is SNOWING outside right now!

My plants in August.

changing seasons

The last snowflake, I hope. I started to drive to the studio in the morning and through the sun spotted windshield saw this one snowflake hanging on for its life. It was melted in a few minutes. Oddly enough, later that night, driving home, a live moth was stuck to my windshield in the exact same spot.

greenhouse flag

This tiny flag was flapping in the wind, proclaiming its presence with quick slaps on the fence.

spring cleaning

Imagine my surprise when I came to the studio one day to see a woman chopping down this tree with a chainsaw!

Bowie's Trouvailles

I wonder, sometimes, how she see things. I think dogs' sense of smell is supposed to be more important than their sense of sight, how crazy.

lamp light, daylight, twilight

I love that cameras are so confused by mixed lighting, and that our eyes are so insensitive to color temperature differences that they need a camera to show them.

Crazy NY Weekend

My seminar class went to a few of the art fairs this week. Here is a sampling on Flickr.
Sadly, my camera died after the first day, so this is actually only half of the weekend.

At the Armory:
  • I wish I had gotten a picture of Moyra Davey's Copperheads, I am always finding myself drawn to her work.
  • A lot of crafty things happening, like cut paper, collage, painting on photographs, intricate detail.
  • Not as much video as I thought there would be.
  • Really liked the Galeria Oliva Arauna of Madrid where I saw Concha Prada's work. Also Per Barclay.
  • There was an overall feeling of safety at the Armory. Nothing too surprising, not the place for emerging artists.
  • Monsieur X had some interesting erotic photos from the 30's
Volta was a breath of fresh air after the Armory. Much younger, hipper, edgier. But not as hip and edgy as Red Dot, and The INdependent, which reminded me of something Chuck said, "cutting edge, bleeding edge". Bleeding indeed.

We also made it to the New Museum and to the Lower East Side galleries.

A little weird fun

I have been saving the subject lines from the wacked-out email marketing I get from Victoria's Secret. I have rearranged the order I got them in but all of this text is taken directly from the emails.
