I figured it was time for a general art thread.


This past weekend I went to another John Waters Exhibit. It was very small, but more varied than the last one I went to. I just love John Waters in every way. No matter what he does, it's pure genius. I can't really describe it and the picture on the site do it no justice.

All my favorites are here though. The "Loser Gift Basket" is great and "Playdate" was horribly disturbing. Yes, that's Michael Jackson. The other one was more disturbing, it was Manson. Creepy.

As it's a general art thread I'd like to put a good word in for Andy Goldsworthy. The man is brilliant, I love what he does. I would say he is in fact my favourite artist.

I thought for sure we had one of these already, buried somewhere... Either way, good to bring the topic up.

There was a 'masterpieces' thread, but not a general art one to the best of my recollection.

Yesterday I went to see a William Wegman retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum. It was really good, of course. He's one of my favorite artists.

I have lost touch with what he's done lately but he's done some really great paintings that I totally love. He takes lots of different postcards & then makes a painting around them. They are totally fab. I can't find good images of them right now.

I also really enjoyed see his early pencil & pen and ink drawings. Very clever.

Jay Ryan is my favorite poster artist. Have a look at www.thebirdmachine.com for a sampling.

Saturday's Guardian panel proved to be the joke of the weekend...

I preferred the letter printed 4 pages later.

"Can someone please explain what David Shrigley is all about?"

Ah, I didn't see that. Had some poor fool lost the ability to appreciate humour?
