Sean Scully (1945-)
“Wall of Light Desert Night”(1999)
Oil on linen
“Wall of Light” at @mnuchin_gallery
Feb 28 - Apr 14, 2018
“In his Wall of Light canvases, Scully moves away from the regularity of his earlier stripes, adopting looser, softer segments of color; the painterly rectangles do not quite touch one another, and allow for glimpses of the pigment underneath, reminiscent of delicate cracks in a wall. It is as if light has penetrated his former stricter canvases and some of its shimmering, elastic nature has infused the oil paint. Theses shapes evoke the irregularity of the Mayan stones, each weathered by age and climate, their edges marking a unique individual history. Scully’s gestural brushstrokes are personal historical markers, too, and intimate the emotional content of these abstractions.”
Geez under my couch is coughing up some cool old works. I did this when living in Singapore and had just returned from a side trip to Bali. On the back it reads Bali - Kuta beach view Nov/09. I used string and tape to create a hanging system. Seems I liked blue back then too.
• awhile ago my grandfather gave me these small tempered glass discs, I probably have over 50 of them. I've got some ideas on how to use them, but also am still very unsure about them. Maybe soon I'll start experimenting with them. • ⏺ • #thoughts
Oh! Yikes! I’ve gotten behind on my challenge! #marchmeetthemaker
I missed DAY 17 Topic #feedback
So… I’m catching up by sharing this quote “Failure is merely feedback that there is something blocking the path of emergence and expansion of the greatest version of yourself” - Mother T
Something is definitely blocking me because I also forgot to post yesterday for DAY 18 topic of #inspiration .
So…This is a work in progress detail of one of the paintings in my “Signs of the Sea” Group #inspired by seaweed on the west coast. I just wrote a blog about it…link in my profile.
Robert Gober is known for the way in which he psychologically transforms commonplace objects such as these untitled cellar doors that are on view @matthewmarksgallery. The doors were originally on view when he represented the United States at the Venice Biennale in 2001. Most of his work is based on his personal experience, specifically on living in Long Island. These doors were inspired by his childhood home that his father built. He often examines alternative meanings of everyday objects. I wonder what he was trying to convey with these doors as there is an ominous feeling about them that creates the temptation to venture down the stairs and discover what lays behind the yellow door.
"Under the Sea 6x6" [Sold] This is a small, high bas relief, fine art piece in my "Under the Sea" series (see previous posts), but I still use the same theme and elements of fish, shells, and coral. .
Prints are available. Link in profile, or:
Process shot of when I realized the shapes aren't organic enough and don't flow right. Still like this phase color wise, and I'm so happy with how it looks now. Completely different and right. Note: this is a work in progress shot of a painting that by now looks completely different.
