1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The first film is something he put together from clips he assembled from the work of a really into submerging himself in quicksand. He (the artist) had stumbled upon the site accidently. That was the artist's entree into a weird subculture of people who like drowning themselves in mud. He eventually found someone who has a purposebuilt quicksand pool studio for fetishists and went there (it is in Arkansas) with a team of people to shoot the second piece. That second piece was fully conceived as an artwork, rather than just assembled.

    The Hopper show at the Whitney is well worth it.

    Nice to finally see Nighthawks in it's actual palette. It glows.

    I don't know where to ask this... I've been finding it difficult to get a solid answer from anyone.

    Does anyone know where a private collector (myself) can sell a piece by a relatively popular contemporary artist (Scott Campbell)? Is there like an ebay type site for this? Obviously I'm not going to go to sotheby's or one of the other big auction places because it wouldn't be worth their time, but I really want to sell this piece.

    Thanks!

    Try the buy/sell/trade board at artchival. I've had good luck there.

    110cmx110cm, each
    From this show, and in situ.
    I don't know why the two above are the most compelling from the show--they wouldn't have been my choice--but others disagree.

    Henrik Vibskov exhibition in the heart of Copenhagen (the lights in the second pic aren't Vibskov).

    I have. It is well worth seeing, though, to be honest, I preferred the one smaller piece to the blockbuster installation in the Atrium. The Kandinsky exhibition that was running at the same time is better, still.

    Do you live in Houston?

    I haven't gone to the one in New York, yet.

    The plebs keep touching the bottom of the green projection and I always notice the smudges their shoes make. It's annoying.

    Do you live in Houston Tira?

    I was raised in Houston when I moved from Nigeria as a teensager so I have a lot of family there. But I live in New York now.
    As for the plebs. U can't let plebs spoil something as epic as that show

    Does anyone have any tips on searching art auction records? I'm interested in a painting and would like to see comps for the artist. There are several paid websites but I have no idea which are worth the money.

    From new show [​IMG] Eric Yankers show at the hole was pretty epic. I rarley LOL with respect at arts, but some of his concepts were hilariously well done.
