Tom McGrath

Nigel Cooke

Julia Jacquette

Ryan Trecartin. I saw his show at QED in Culver City. The installation seemed so-so, but the video 'A Family Finds Entertainment' is really funny, and I don't normally have much of a weakness for John Watersy stuff.

Also, this was somewhere in LA's Chinatown last Semptember. I don't know the name of the piece, the artist, or the gallery (which has since closed). I don't remember if I saw it in person because I was so drunk.

Yeah, I have to say I'm a big fan of Peter Day Jackson. (Articles, works, & bio behind link, or click here: http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/artists/matthew_day_jackson.htm).

Jonathan Meese, I find simply irritating.

i was extremely excited and then deeply saddened when, as i was scrolling down, i saw ten pieces of art all in a row that i truly love and was ecstatic to see that someone else loved all of them as well... only to realize i had posted them.

Oh actually photobucket reduced them, so they're a little smaller than life-size. No excuses!

good work, dude.

this thread makes me want to leave work and go paint.

somogyi needs to take a break from painting while the lsd after-effects clear out of her system

i think we should move this thread to the noise board so i can delete richard prince bullshit.

cousin larry bundgee (bundgee), Wednesday, 13 September 2006 21:36 (sixteen years ago) link

Yeah, I don't like being forced to give an "OK" to Richard Prince whenever I open the thread.

On the middle right of this image, you can see what most impressed me about this installation: the talking pie.

This and the other threads have gotten so long and unwieldy that Jeff and I have decided to just do a blog.

It'll be the same kind of thing, more or less daily, so if anyone reads this thread, please join us at the official roni horn memorial blog:

So much good stuff on this thread. ILX keeps me interested in art.

can highly recommend the Vilhelm Hammershøi exhibition at the RA (London) - turn of the century interiors, either empty or with a single figure facing away from the viewer. Very subtle, almost minimalist, a sense of privacy, a slght feeling of the sinister.

Tom Friedman show at the Gagosian with a piece using artist's boogers.

blog is still going strong!

It would be so retarded to put a picture link because this guy seems quite in thrall to the dematerialzation of the art object dudes as well as 90's conceptualism (good thing, anyone giving props to Felix Gonzalez Torres is down with me)

Seriously check this guy out, really nice realization of very elegant ideas about technology and memory and emotion. His reinterpretation of Perfect Lovers is so simple and brilliant, the audacity of someone who doesn't feel the need to smother their work with themselves.

Greatheads up on Hammershoi and Friedman btw. Friedman is one of those guys where I pick and choose the stuff I like, so (as usual) the show was only half successful. Hammershoi was a revelation since i've only scarcely come across him in books. Portraits were all disturbingly impersonal studies in subtle shades.

Recommend both though.
