It’s me. Sometimes it’s not me. Sometimes it’s LPM assistants or fellow bloggers or dead silence. But, right now, it’s me. How do you KNOW it’s me? Good question.
So, I’m putting together this group show called “I’m not trying to freak you out…” but I probably will. 😉 The way that I’ve decided whether or not I liked (read: loved) a piece or art (or even an artist themselves) is by feeling an emotional reaction to the work (or person). It’s weird to think about but I’d much prefer the person who total offends me than the person who exchanges niceties at the house party punch bowl for an hour. Know what I mean?
I’m looking for others who feel similarly. I want your weird, your wasted, your drunk video, your torn painting, the best thing you’ve ever made. Give me the rotting vultures and crying babies of the world. For me, I see those moments and see the beauty in them. Melted candy cane on a sidewalk, a chair forgotten but haloed by light…. this is a CALL FOR ARTISTS!
(thank you to the Mexican market proselytizers for this one = life changing)
People and art I’m considering:
Carl Smith Visual Art
Blair Gallacher Art
Danny Manning (for some slam, dude)
Chelsea Seth Woodward
