Beautiful work as always. Do you know Arshile Gorky's stuff?
Not familiar with Gorky. I'll have to look him up.Thanks Jeffrey. Oh yeah- send in an avatar when you can..
Just looked at some Gorky: Some of it is spectacular. Thanks for the tip. I'm going to have to make a trip tot the library for some Gorky books.
Cool, thought you might like him... I see a similar sort of lyrical linework in your drawings, hard to do.Another great one is Roberto Matta, very overlooked.BTW, my avatar is already on the site over there -----> (?)
Oh yeah. Smoking way too much weed lately...Thanks for the compliments!I'll check out Matta too. I'm pretty ignorant beyond my set of ten or so favorites that I've had forever.
I like the weird things this makes me see, unintentionally. I'm seeing ghosts and detached limbs sneaking around weird places, awesome. I saw a HUGE Matta retrospective at the contemporary museum of art in Chicago about 6 years ago. I'd been a fan for awhile but seeing his paintings in person really blew me away. He has a great balance of figurative and abastract style that lets your mind wander off in ten million directions in one picture.
