Jerry Saltz Studio Visit Report


Last week at Art Basel: Stuffy's, after overcoming my starstruckedness, I found the courage to invite Jerry Saltz to my studio. He graciously accepted!!


That is Libby in that painting he's studying! Jerry said he never misses a day checking Libby and Roberta's blog... and that "they are fantastic artists blazing new trails".

I totally agree!!!

I showed him all my friend's work, and he loved it all!


It looks like he is smiling here, doesn't it? Maybe the hint of a smile? I think he must like that painting -

but when I asked him what he thought... SILENCE.


Stare down.


Okay... I blinked. He got up on tip-toes, though. Very aggressive.


Seduced. Shalom, partner.

Oh Jerry, I don't care if you don't like Marlene Dumas.

I can't believe you got that close to Jerry. I was trying to cozy up myself, but you got there first!

hey! I was recently 'unfriended' by jerry on facebook! let me tell you !

He posted his New York magazine article about the younger than jesus show. I suggested an 'older than god' show. some people laughed. then i thought wait, jerry is older than god! and i posted that but apparently he didn't find that very funny as he disappeared from my friends list within seconds.

does anyone else get the IRONY here? i know, i know - irony is SO gen x. But he is wondering why some of us feel a wee bit pissy about the premise of the show and then i bring HIS age into it and he unfriends me?!!??! People, am i crazy?
