This caught my eye, of course.
And then I got closer and started to laugh!
Bureaucratinc Paintings (Red), from the series "Bureaucratinc Abstractions 2017,"
Marcius Galan, set of 12, acrylic paint on paper
They're all receipts from the dry cleaner, a book store, etc. I didn't have to deal with any bureaucratic stuff in Brazil, but I was witness to some of what Ann & Brian went through, and I quickly learned to always have a Plan B... crazy stuff, crazy life and this is perfect commentary!
I wish I could tell you whose painting this is (gah!).
Does anyone else see a squishy knit blanket?
In replying to comments yesterday from Kym & Carole, I remarked that it really is interesting to walk around an art show (or four) just to see WHAT people are using and HOW. The color, texture, and SCALE of things... even if you don't "get" the art, something is bound to resonate at some point!
I married an artist and I gave birth to & raised three very artistic women, so I've been around art for a long time... I'm "creative" but not particularly knowledgeable about "art," so I've found different ways to let it speak to me.
And with that, we had a lovely few hours at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday!
There was a secret thrill in getting into a cab and saying, "To The Met!"
Here are a few things that caught my eye.
Fighting Cows by Franz Marc, oil on canvas
Wisconsin Landscape by John Steuart Curry, oil on canvas
He captured so wonderfully that beautiful light through broody clouds on checkerboard fields.
The Café Terrace by Diego Rivera, oil on canvas
Concord, Barnett Newman, oil and masking tape on canvas
No. 21, Mark Rothko, oil and acrylic with powdered pigments on canvas
Flying Dutchman, Man Ray, oil on board
Clothesline, Fairfield Porter, oil on canvas
Mäda Primavesi, Gustav Klimt, oil on canvas
This was simply glorious; that straightforward gaze, those beautiful colors - bold & soft at the same time!
