are those socks?

Martin said...

YES!!

but, how can you tell? it's one sock that was cut into strips. i was wearing those socks when i met daniel buren.

meridith said...

that looks like the seam of a sock heel on the right.

did you wear striped socks on purpose when you met him?

Martin said...

yes.

hey, have you noticed that blogger no longer allows non-blogger commenters to link back to their own websites?

here is meridith's work, if anyone is curious -

The image has a bit of an Italian feel to it. Burri and Fontana and then more.

fontana definitely, i've been thinking about fontana for a while, since seeing a piece at miami basel in 2005. here is a post of nice fontanas -

need to look more at burri. also, there is salvatore scarpitta (an american), whom i recently posted on in reference to richard prince. this piece was made before discovering scarpitta though.

all three of them - burri, fontana, scarpitta - can be related to arte povera, but i think i'm probably getting it more from a somewhat similar japanese sensibilty (i lived in japan 1995-2003), and am just tuned-in to the arte povera vibe. richmond probably helped reinforce it.

hey vic - this piece also totally relates to the silver piece i had in your painting center show. that piece had stretched denim, from my jeans. i've been doing stuff with my old clothes.

... you could only see it was denim on the sides, the front had all been painted silver. here's an image of it -

Since I am someone who is obsessed with the image of three dimensional tubes stretching out into infinity I really appreciate the digital image of your multi-media painting. The socks really feel three dimensional in the image but they might appear flatter or more two dimensional in person. I like the contrasting textures between the surface or ground and the socks. The tears add a sensual tactile dimension to the image. Things bursting through things like that universally unsettle humans, minutely at least. Socks are familiar objects; they are worn by many humans everyday. Formally speaking the violet, purple stripes on the socks vibrate when juxtaposed with the dull gray (?) or tan ground. They have an organic aspect to them as well because they seem to be self motivated, writhing across the surface after having burst through the ground. The canvas then is seen in a dual fashion because it is literarily the ground of the work, but it could also be a representation of real earth or sand/dirt, or a metaphor for such.

Well, Martin, I am CRAZY about Fontana. I have seen a lot of him and would love to see more.
I saw a bunch of Burri in Venice and it was all great. Much better in person than in a photograph....

what i like about this and the silver one from the pc show is that they interrogate without waterboarding the surfaceness of painting & open it up. but still allow for the associative richness of socks, stains, stripes, etc.
i think fontana is less subtle.
