Liz Markus

Liz Markus, at Zieher Smith.

Painting above is a glam memorial of old art magazine advertisements + glitter. Ads for shows with galleries like Pat Hearn and American Fine Arts; old shows for Polly Apfelbaum, Jonathan Borofsky, John Dogg, Richmond Burton, Meyer Vaisman.

I'm a geek for these new paintings that are portraits? homages? of different artists.

Charlie is right I was reeling around in front of the Double Rotten...

and I liked her Summer 2007 show at the previous space too.

RELAX with Joshua and Tisch Abelow.

Fawn Krieger

Fawn Krieger, Ruin Value, at Soloway.

Ruin Value. had never heard of that.

"Embedded in the notion of buildings with high Ruin Value, of course, is that the very prospect of realizing is accompanied by the anticipation it will one day collapse, or simply fail and remain. Failing as an intentional built-in to realization is compelling to me." - Fawn Krieger

Fawn Krieger
the individual pieces are being sold at $40 per pound after the first week... cash and carry ok... wonder what it will look like at the end of the month.


(makes me think about Liz Glynn's Rome piece for the New Museum show)

Abstract Masters

Frank Wimberly's For Barbara (1958), between a Frank Bowling and a Herbert Gentry.

African American Abstract Masters, at the Opalka Gallery, Sage College, in Albany.

This is the same show I saw split up in two places in NYC back in March... at Anita Shapolsky's and the Wilmer Jennings Gallery.

Joe Overstreet, Carry Back (1960) - this painting has already been 'favorited' three times since posting it to flickr a few days ago....

Frank Wimberly... Frank is the only surviving artist who was able to attend the opening... he's eighty-four!!

Ed Clark Louisiana Series (1978) back wall. Joe Overstreet Black Star Line (1990) front wall.

- Ed Clark at G.R. N'Namdi got a lot of comments
- I visited Joe Overstreet's studio
- definitely click on the Anita Shapolsky post to see some better images and a great photo of Anita.

Frank Wimberly talking about Ed Clark's Red, Black and Blue Movement (2009)... oh yeah Ed Clark is also eighty-four.

(Ed Clark had a great website but it's down hope it gets fixed)
