Don't forget also, if you give two million hipsters two million typewriters, then in two million years...you know how it goes

Did anyone go to the Armory Show this weekend? I saw a lot of stuff that I loved, and a lot a stuff that I thought was awful. But that's art. To each their own. Also saw a lot of rich dudes with sweaters tied around their necks and trophy wives on their arms.

Favorite piece at the show was this:
Asgar/Gabriel

it's about time somebody took those uppity lesbians down a peg.

ironic psychedelia is kind of having a moment in contemporary art.

" some other musical score abstractions

I am glad I missed that show. One would need to clean a pallet with turpentine after seeing all that f-Art. P.S. Nowadays if one wants to see art at the Armory one needs to go to antiques show.

I really like these fold-patterns by Taura Auerbach. Her other stuff also works but most only on a "artsy-intellectual" level and not as home-decoration. I also like some photos by Marilyn Minter

What is the style called in which the art has little angels/demons/nymphs running around and causing hell? I don't know if there's a particular name for that type of scene/subject, but I love it. This sculpture at the de Young captures the imagery I am referring to. I'm looking for art with a similar set of actors but perhaps in a modern setting. Thanks. sorry it's sideways, my damn image host keeps flipping the orientation.

..except maybe for some of the people she was influenced by, like Lari Pittman. I'm not totally sure what he means either though. Brueghel was the first thing that came to my mind but he's an old master.

He said contemporary but for old masters, Bosch is what I think of.

I suppose Bosch makes more sense. I just like Brueghel more, and have been looking at him a lot recently. Some Rococo painters made work like that too.

Oh, I thought of a more recent one. Henry Darger:

I am in a Voyage of Life by Thomas Cole sort of mood today.

Thats fucking sick as hell!!! I would call that Renaissance art but what the hell do I know.

BTW I finally put some stuff up from my personal collect into auction. I don't know whats going on but prices are thru the roof at international auctions. I am getting a few grand while I can.
