JAMES MILLER . . . had a wonderful debut NYC show just as the season closed – last June 2015.
the show seemed so full of promise, and attracted so many new faces, bound to be taking over . . that I hesitated to post about it in real time, and leave it behind.
so here is it, where it belongs !!
in the forefront of the new Fall season, enjoy !!

and then, there was a really nice after party with the best pizza, ever !!
in the back courtyard of the Industrial City building, just magical as the evening turned into sunset.
LADY SOULE, PIPPA, THEO & KATE !!
note: I would also like to thank JAMES MILLER & NICHOLAS STEINDORF . . . !!
for their absolutely invaluable help – in making it all happen, in so many ways:
‘Under the Volcano: Simon Cerigo, Dan Asher, Nancy Smith’, a pop-up show curated by KATE & THEO CERIGO, June 6 & 7, 2015 – 169 Bowery, Lower East Side. NY.

or: THE THEORY Of EVERYTHING . . . . . . !!
Heads, you win.
tails, you lose !!
I like getting a lot of my art from Instagram right now.
it sure beats the hell out of running all over the island – and the 5 boroughs !!
plus it has it’s own – brand of random magic.

likewise, feeling jaded & exploited ? and needing of someone else’s dark narrative – dirt_worship is usually – your go-to-girl !!

then when your house is not only in order, but ON FIRE !!
voila. the digital realm pops open – with a ‘cross stitch’ meets street art – burner !!

Allyson’s commentary: “all the silk applique parts were dyed with indigo we grew …”
and then when, you are totally in the present, something that hits even more close to your inner spiritual American homeland – heart, will float right by . . . with the ease of a cloud: a big dream, plenty of hands-on skills, and with all the celestial constellations – in order, but still: a mystery !!
and, note: it’s the head, the face . . that nails it, as cutting edge,
as in: m-y-s-t-e-r-y !! !!

‘STOIC YOUTH’ . . . the digital generation is not so much into voicing controversy, or getting more than skin deep into communicating . . but, heads tell the story . . !!
and sometimes heads – they roll, like dice. one coning right after the other, and in this case, Taylor’s post on my feed – was followed by:
Owl’s Head – by ANDREW GUENTHER @eattheleaf
image via @artloversnewyork
commentary: owl image by Andrew Guenther, cut-out from the card for his show – SIMON CERIGO curated in May 2007. in a Chelsea, NYC gallery & used as a ‘heading’ from which a paper banner hung, paper banner by Nancy Smith – made for her OTHER MUSIC show, NYC 2009.
so, yep . . . Fall 2015, the take-away, is:
the ‘Heads’ have it, only don’t be too talky, and above all – don’t get mad !!
just let the fingers . . do the walkin’ !!
no . . tales !!
ps: crackin’ jokes . . is iffy, too.
jokes – apparently went down, when Joan Rivers did.
unless you happen to specialize – in them !!
and, then of course your logo – is headless !!
only for the brave-of-heart !!
only for those who can throw back a good laugh & return it – if they are the victim . . !!
as ESPO says: EARL IS THE NEXT VICTIM…
& if an artist can’t be a rebel, and stick it to the man – then, who can ?!!

JACOB GOBLE – TAKES THE PRIZE !!
FIRST ARTLOVERS ART REVIEW – OF THE NEW FALL SEASON.
JACOB GOBLE – ‘BANKRUPT’
opened Sat Sept 12, 2015
the show runs thru Sun Oct 4, 2015
SARDINE – 286 STANHOPE ST, BUSHWICK, BROOKLYN.
HRS: SAT & SUN / 1 – 6 PM
and no, he’s NOT !! bankrupt in ideas, quite the contrary.
lots of ‘context’, lots of great, really ‘true’ spatial painting, lots of strong color field, lots of fade, lots of imagery, lots of retro signage, and many sweet touches of souvenir, touristy nostalgia. lots of hands-on painting. in other words, lots of everything, peopele are talking about, and doing it – well. and, with wit.
want to see . . the serious ‘spatial’ and ‘plastic’ concerns, he has, at play ?
hit this: gallery link, for a gorgeous, large sample.
detail, ‘Colorado’ – this painting is made so vibrant by the collaboration.
LISA CANDAGE GOBLE, in fact Jacob’s wife, is also a very gifted and seriously art-smart character, even though she tries to fly in, under the radar as an ‘outsider’, as if !! it’s pretty easy to see she has a well-trained eye, as well. her curious ‘leaf’ embellishment to the background totally escapes kitsch, don’t even go there, but provides a wonderful foil that plays against Jacob’s hand – with not only a great design & narrative element – but with quiet verve. it’s a strange pictorial, translate: original !! vibe to sustain, and it works well.
to experience both their different techniques, and voices is – really an awesome experience.
and, don’t even get me started on the price. $1,500.
absolute . . doable. if not a steal.
on the right:
LACEY FEKISHAZY, the founder/co-director of Sardine.
walking around NYC, is seriously like opening a can of sardines !! so many diverse talents, all writhing and rocking and rolling – on this tiny, super creative island. I asked Lacey what she did for a day job:
oh, she’s a draftsman for the SOL LEWITT ESTATE !!
she worked on the wall project that was just completed & is also being introduced to the public, in an opening tonight – at the PAULA COOPER GALLERY.
‘The Xerox Book’, a group show including a SOL LeWILL piece, a four part, color pencil and graphite wall drawing from his 1968-1969 ‘Drawing Series’, now up at Paula Cooper, 521 W. 21st St, till Oct 24, 2015.
on the left, with Lacey – is her good friend, AMY FRANCES FRAHER who runs her own Creative Management, Branding & Production company: GOOD BLU.
I got a little distracted by this run of wooden shelves in the front of the gallery. made me think of the TWO SHELVES, the pop-up gallery space run by indie curators KELLY BJORK and JOE RUDKO, in their home – where DREW MILLER had, his mini, but sensational !! show this past summer. if you hit the gallery link, you can see his work still up on the home page. don’t blink !!
see: TWO SHELVES, SEATTLE
I meet artist ALEX SEWELL at the opening. he told me about a big opening happening later the same night at Underdonk, also in Bushwick – about 5 blocks away, which I couldn’t make – had a dinner party to run to.
but sounded fun !! maybe next time !!
yes, my super hungry hyper-new-culture fiends, feast your eyes . .
on the quirky art of: ALEX SEWELL.
and, of course !!
check out: Underdonk – 1329 Willoughby Ave #211, in Bushwick.
L train to Jefferson, HRS: Sat & Sun / 1-6 pm
now showing what looks to be an extremely dynamic pure painting show:
‘NEW AMERICAN PAIN’ – curated by JASON RAMOS, from Eastside International, out of LA.
if you couldn’t figure Jacob Goble for a really serious, talented, intense, and even, my fave – a color field painter, look no further.
who needs words with paintings, like this. sheer magic.
from the gallery:
“For BANKRUPT, Goble steals, and then runs with the icons, color, and language of the television game show “Wheel of Fortune”. Over the 30 years that it’s been on air, it’s rules, prizes, and even hosts have remained the same. It’s a benign institution. (!!!) A dependable place for easy chair fantasies. For Goble, it’s serving as a template to bring up cutting edge analogies on making art, the art world and life as a whole. He reminds us that the saving grace among these familiar rules and traditions, is the presence of the artist’s hand and vision.”
in this piece, the roles are reversed, JACOB GOBLE painted the Maine pictorial ’tile’, and LISA CANDAGE did the misty background !!
thrilling to really look into what each brings to the table.
totally hot duo, in a most under-stated way – or, what !!
PHOTOS: NANCY SMITH
‘mini’ – Sardine . . . looks to be rockin’ the art world waves – big time !!
JACOB GOBLE opens ‘BANCKRUPT – tonite SAT SEPT 12 / 6-9 PM

this looks to be the biggest, little indie opening – on the scene, to-nite & straight out of the opening gate.
start of the new Fall art season !!
bet the work is doable too, money-wise !! !! !!
but, don’t BLINK !!
JACOB GOBLE . . . seems to have,
it ALL covered: fresh look, dry wit, sharp insight, great graphics, clean lines, great flat fields & slow background bleeds. not to forget cool, retro signage !! and – of course, SOCIAL COMMENTARY !!
home run, dude !!
you go boy, hell ya . . . . down – with all that way-over, Chelsea fuzzy art.
no names, but you know who, seedy, seedy & more seedy !!
ok, I’m opinionated, so shoot me – otherwise shut up, sit back – and watch the $$$ trickle in – !!
best bang for your art collecting dollars & viewing pleasure – to-nite, by a mile !!

FREAKY, FRANKENSTEIN BLACK INK TAT – ESOPUS CREEK, PHOENICIA, NY
by anonymous ?
and I don’t think – in this case, ‘anonymous’ . . is a woman ??
FILE UNDER: NOT SO . . . FUNNY !!!!!
a 14-yr old girl, apparently a really sweet, and athletic cheerleader from Connecticut – tragically got caught in a tree branch ‘strainer’ tubing down the Esopus creek, on holiday with her dad, and drowned the day before we showed up – for same route, on Sunday Labor Day weekend.
they do a dam ‘release’ on special weekends – so it’s really EXTREME, WHITE WATER TUBING !!!!!
mad strong currents, rocks, trees, hidden obstacles. high rushing water levels.
totally un-supervised. more or less.
she wasn’t wearing a life preserver. TINKER TUBES which rents tubes to day-tourists and locals alike, makes, or at least indicates that you need to wear . . a life jacket. she wasn’t.
needless to day, the dam ‘release’ had been shut down by Sunday – but it was still, damn scary !!
and, no – NOT FUNNY. sad.
you’d think the t-shirts would be gone, but apparently . . commerce rules.
tel me about it.
black & white – !!!!
good, bad, sad – or, just . . . twisted.
damn, it’s frikking tough – out there.
human bio-life, human survival – is so fragile.
half the globe’s at war.
the rest is in . . . denial.

even though Mary Shelley’s mother, Mary Wollstonecraft – who was famous in her own right, died when Mary Shelley was just 10 days old . . “Mary Shelley was an expert on her mother. She read every book her mother ever wrote countless times”, and “Shelley, who learned to read tracing the letters on her mother’s gravestone, and who famously wrote ‘Frankenstein’ at just 19, felt her mother’s presence all her life.”
“Both of them spent a lot of time imaging the future . . as well as the past”,
and of course – “Their personal lives were – outrageous” . . . !!

SYRIA’S ANTIQUITIES – ARE TODAYS VICTIM, SUMMER 2015.
THE TRUTH – NEVER GOES AWAY.
DESTROYING ARTWORK FROM CENTURIES AGO – SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE (SORRY) STATE OF OUR WORLD – AS IT TURNS, TODAY.
EARL, such a great name, right up there with ELVIS, what happened to it ?
Duke, Duke, Duke of Earl . . . sweet harmony, of oppressed peoples, USA – console me.
well, at least we have photos – of those ruins, but nothing beats the real thing, for a real good time travel, not to mention real time commune with fellow artists from way back.
it’s war on art and civilization, not jest religion and politics.
what else is new. I’m so distraught.
tell me, Banksy didn’t call it – boatloads of migrants and all . . DISMALAND, in-deed !!
he should have had a 2,000 years-old artifact crushing station, or ride, whatever.
replica key chain: lost ancient temple, Palmyra, Syria, $10. and it’s yours. to cry over.
so I actually ended up scoring that piece . .
‘EARL IS TODAYS VICTIM’ – a riot, or what !!
turned out this yellow background, metal sign format – was an important prototype for the kind of signage Steve was going to put up at DISMALAND.
the coloring is based on authentic retro New York City – street signage.
I considered myself very, very . . lucky to acquire the piece, it’s about 22 inches square, metal on a frame base, unique. for the grand total of: $250 !!
basically: zip !!
but still, every friggin’ cent I had to my name – but, hey: CA-CHING $$$$$$!!!!!!
STEVE was handing out these stickers for free.
so, YOU LOOK STUPID – if you don’t have at least that, a sticker give-away by ESPO !!
you can always make up for stupidity & lost opportunity – by visiting Steve in his ICY STUDIOS – and see what you can wrangle, he’s usually up to whatever you have – you get something. though his prices must be up there for any thing substantial. at this point.
damn, he’s prob even charging for the stickers, now. ha. he’s a hustler, very fun guy !!
so don’t be . . more stupid, than YOU already are. get your sorry ass up there.
I got your number, don’t worry !!
