girlontape said...

ay chicas - ojalá fuera mia esta obra! pero no: es una pintura por la artista estadounidense Lee Price, una genia mal, me encanta su pasión por el autoretrato...

J said...

Nice
Helps if you look good I suppose, but where are the great portraits of ordinary ugly people?

girlontape said...

J check out jenny saville another figurative painter I adore, she goes against the canon of physical beauty

J said...

I remember her, she was on TV squashing her plumpness against a glass coffee table.
Quite a good idea, I thought, really makes the flab inescapable and central, pushes you up against the fact of it. Raw.

J said...

Tell you who else does really raw work, Nicola Hicks. If you ever see her work up close it's a real treat - so primal, earthy, dense, charismatic, alive.

girlontape said...

generally not so much into sculpture but kudos to Nicola Hicks for valuing the animal world

Mary Poppins said...

so, are you sure is a painting???????????

estuve viendo su portfolio y la tematica es la mujer comiendo y comiendo en baneras, cama y en posicion horizontal, y comiendo sin tapujos

interesting...

girlontape said...

y sí es super interesting la tematica, me recuerda el dark side de Eric Fischl otro genio de la pintura figurativa que amo

J said...

I see, you can settle for 2 dimensions becuse your mind supplies the 3rd and 4th, eh?

girlontape said...

hmmm can't say... in terms of sculpture i do love michelangelo, and rachel whiteread

Daniel said...

No lo puedo creer. Faltan diez minutos para las 19 hs en Buenos Aires, y hace dos minutos que termino de... ¡¡¡escuchar tu voz por la radio!!! En Radio Cooperativa has salido al aire pidiendo por tu amado Milo. Conmueve tanto amor por el perrito. Que el hermoso Milo y la muy bella Steff puedan reencontrarse y asi termine del mejor modo una hermosa historia de cariño sin límites. Este comentario nada tiene que ver con la talentosa Lee Price, pero la sorpresa de haberte escuchado me apura a comentar esto.

girlontape said...

Qué lindo comentario Daniel! Así que de veras corre la voz por los medios... gracias por tus palabras, me conmueven demasiado las manifestaciones de solidaridad que sigue cosechando mi amado Milo...

OK I'm looking at some of rachel Whitehead's work and I'm looking inside for some sort of inner reaction and there isn't any. Probably need to see the real thing rather than pics on the web.
You agree?

girlontape said...

her stuff is so minimal, subtle, also monumental - you really have to see it live. my favorite of her is "Water Tower" - she cast the negative space inside NY water towers in resin, then put them on manhattan roof tops - stunning. we used to see them from our windows.

J said...

What sort of reaction would you say you had to that?
A visceral inner pleasure, or a fascination with something abstract with no great emotional feeling? A sense of spacyness? A tingling deep inside? Joy? Absorbtion? More thoughts? Less thoughts? A sense of something alien and out of place? An irresistable urge to shout "Bna! Bna!" and throw a teaspoon at a green peiceof lint?
(Probably not the last one< i suppose)

Rachel's tower

It does look strange and incongruous, all the other towers are looking at it wondering what to make of it, this new stranger in their midst.
