Meridith Pingree

Meridith Pingree at NURTUREart... today is LAST day!

Screen patchwork wormhole twisting and distorting space. The buildings look like they are being warped into another dimension.

That green spider she showed last year
had a similar odd, mechanical, sinister vibe. Like it!

too weeeird... these trudy bensons at f+v look like eric salls... and doesn't f+v now share the same space with eric's atm? what are they doing? this is bizarrely stupid.

and trudy went to vcu as an undergrad when sall was a grad... hey i am all for taking what you need from others but c'mon it's a joke when james kalm asks who she's looked at and she doesn't mention sall.

not ready for prime-time, sorry.

Every Day is Earth Day

Every Day is Earth Day

Went back to take some better pictures of the amazing collection in the concourse under the Empire State Plaza... this time I explored a little further and went into one of the buildings.

Not as much stuff to see in the building but the walls are all cool milky cosmic marble. No sign to say who made this painting.

Walked upstairs and it was all marble everywhere... no more art... until I saw this blue and green piece floating in space at the end of a long hall.

I peeked. The back says XOX, D. Kohler, N.Y., 1970-71.

WHO IS IT? There is no Kohler listed on the Empire State Plaza Art Collection website and no D. Kohler listed on Artnet.


RELATED: old pics at the plaza... mostly cellphone... i will post better ones soon.
