CORONATION OF SESOSTRIS
Unreadable poetic words
Was childhood an influence at all or just how it came out?
We’re the words from the start or did they come after or during?
How many would he do a day?
Did he write also?
Why did he limit himself to these square canvases with big expressive strokes?
He wrote me just like I do. I love it.
Why the grapes?
When did he know he was done with one? Did he decide later or in the moment?
Some he drew something then wrote stuff. It was a blob and then writing.
Love or anger?
This cy twombly was amazing! I have been a fan of his work I love the chalk board circle scribbles. The paintings in this are what really struct me. The way he used composition and would make many that looked similar but the differences still totally changed it. His work really inspires my photos. Just the way he thought about them. The influence for a lot of my lines too.
Doug Aitken. NEW ERA 303 gallery
Near the Hilton hotel I made the first public phone call
Becoming one with the machine becoming one with another person and the machine
We are gonna become god
Technology = god
We become the technology
I made the first phone call
Is this video against technology or just making a statement on it?
Is this in support of technology?
I had to see this for my time class so I went while I was seeing the others and honestly it was pretty good. I loved the repetition and the shots were beautiful. I also just loved how weird it was. It was weird and kind of dumb but what it was saying still came across well and didn’t seem stupid. I didn’t love love all the kaleidoscope videos especially when it went all trippy and had the dance music but when it was the phone and other small pieces of technology it was really great.
David Hockney: Something New in Painting (and Photography)
Something must be off
Why so happy?
Are these spaces real or in his head?
Why the hexagon?
Red and orange
Purple is important
It was getting close to close of all the galleries and I was having trouble finding ones I like. This one I didn’t like love that much or was inspired by but I did like it and it made me stop and really think about them. It’s far from my style but I did like the kind of twist on reality they had. Something about them seemed a little off or not right. and how he also photographed himself in his studio just surrounded by the paintings. Without all of these paintings together they might seem boring but when you see that many and then you see the photograph you see there is something here because it’s very strange. strange is good! You really see in these his view of the world. good and bad.
