~JOE BRADLEY . . OUTPERFORMING THE MARKET / PHILLIPS EVENING SALE THURS NOV 16 / UP-DATE

the JOE BRADLEY painting . . sold for $700,000.
not bad. $100,000 below the minimum, but considering that he was the youngest on the roster, and still alive (!!)
that’s still plenty amazing.
many of his contemporaries don’t even get $10,000 a pop, maybe highest . . $20,000. in special cases $30,000 / $40,000.
let alone have a secondary, & we are talking, vibrant secondary market.
and it was probably a very nice windfall for the seller, who most likely didn’t pay anywhere near, or maybe . . just $100,000 for it / at the most 6 years ago.

I mean even JOHN DOIG is . . 58.
JOHN CURRIN, born in 1962 is . . 55.
KARA WALKER, born in 1969 is . . 48.
JOE, born in 1975 is . . 42.

JOE BRADLEY . . .
OUTPERFORMING THE MARKET, HIS PEERS, HIS FRIENDS, and probably . . . HIS DREAMS !!

~ALFREDO MARTINEZ . . BACK TO REALITY / THE NEW NORM / QUIET, GUNS & QUILTS

one day: magic & fantasy, tripping the . . Halloween lantern / light.
less than 4 hrs later: 8 people dead, more hurt. Satanic. coin toss. bike lane.

Home Depot rental truck ?
& the guy was an Uber driver.
the new, new age cliches.

somebody said in the news last night /
the FBI director, or was it the NYPD chief of police ?
“unfortunately this ‘kind’ of terrorism – is now the new norm”.
if orange . . is the new black … !!!!
another lone wolf . . will attack.
Did Emily Dickinson have to deal with that ?
maybe in their own repressed way, the community she lived in, was under a form of conformist / social attack ?


@alfredomartinezartist: “Hi-tech SWAT teams that would look in place in Iraq just went down the subway at 23rd St.”

IMAGE VIA INSTAGRAM @alfredomartinezartist – posted 42 mins ago / WED NOV 1, 2017

note: me & Alfredo both lived up close & personal, through the SEPT 11, 2001 WTC / WORLD TRADE CENTER / Twin Towers terror attack. I saw it, directly as the bird flies . . from my 20th floor mini-terrace / FDR & Grand St. I was morning watering my little mini morning glory plantings, still blooming in the fall air.
I absolutely saw the first plane go straight into the first tower. & then slow delay, heard the reports on TV / as the news people caught off guard, tried to make sense of it: “an accident / a helicopter just flew into the WTC ??”
and, then I saw the 2nd come North, up the East River, turn around, & go straight in, head first. into the 2nd tower . . of doom.

a lot of people are fascinated with guns, and gun imagery, but I always felt Alfredo’s obsession, came from a deeper depth / from the authenticity of an outsider, brought up in the real, rough & tumble of the deeper dark outer impoverished hoods of NYC, where a ‘Saturday Night Special’ had real meaning. and currency.

it was very obvious to me, though sometimes my involvement with JOSH LUVVY HARRIS of ‘QUIET’ of ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’, and . . Alfredo /strikes people as strange ?
they were both great artists / outside the system. outsiders. totally flew over the mainstream.
maybe it was the way, I flew right over the ‘mainstream / my inner ‘radar’ & art / street smarts . . . made me an outsider, too.

we even had a small art show in Chelsea, at now defunct DANIEL SILVERSTEIN GALLERY, after . . ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’, and yet still before 9/11, must have been .. the summer of 2000.
where Josh exhibited a rough edit cut of ‘WE LIVE In PUBLIC’, Alfredo showed some replica guns, and a big, armed-to-the-teeth, life size, Robo / Robot sculpture / and I showed a repaired vintage quilt.
we called it, ‘Quiet, Guns and Quilts’.

to me . . that was like the bedrock of the American experience, from the past & straight up to, even now.

GUNS . . ALWAYS BEING KEY TO TAKING OVER THIS CONTINENT / WIPING OUT THE NATIVE PEOPLES, OPENING UP THE WEST / THE WILD WEST FRONTIER / and ultimately the only way for solving all problems going forward, including that incredible self-massacre we call the ‘CIVIL’ WAR. ingenuity. invention. creativity. craft.
function: kill / preserve / keep safe. make ‘peace’.

QUILTS . . being the other side of the coin. family, comfort, skills, culture, art, remembrance, history. commemoration. even: flag. symbol. underground railroad. communication & the first bi-nary system, patterns, piecing. sampling. math. computers. code. going forward, looking backward. archiving. tradition / innovation. quasi-religious artifact.
not to forget: re-cycling. making do. can do. indie, leaving old ways Europe behind. and in essence: the way of the future / that was not destruction, and evil, and war and bloodshed.
but also: American invention, ingenuity, craft.
function: nourish / warm / keep safe. record. make beauty.

Guns & Quilts:
kind of the All American . . YIN YANG.

QUIET is the visionary. the poet. the entrepreneur. the Thoreau. the Wizard. the magician. the web pioneer who didn’t even know what social media was, when he was making the roots of it, before there were even ‘smart’ cellphones / or cellphones with cameras. and most people didn’t have personal computers, or if they did, it was their kids who had them, and all there was for web streaming . . was dial-up AOL.
technology, code, future forward / social experiments, underground artist patron saint.
also a form of creativity. big bang. productions / pr / media. circus. money.
social invention / social experiment. social ingenuity / social community / ‘bio’ craft.
function: unknowing / moves society forward.

QUIET, GUNS & QUILTS – OUTSIDERS.
a triangle of . . ‘hyper cultural consciousness’.
visualize:
fight skills / warmth skills / & the ghost who conjures the path.
left, right .. head.
yin yang .. web.

‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ the movie / the documentary based on his life . . . got plenty of press, and acclaim, esp international, won Sundance, premiered at MoMA etc etc.
many write-ups in the NY TIMES etc etc.

but the art world proper, dropped the ball.
might well have been ‘Gilligan’ . . lost on an island.

from his website, MONSTERS FOR REAL . . ‘BIO’ page:

“JIM HOLYOAK is an Earthling, from Kingdom Mammalia, and the species homo sapiens. During the time he is not awake, he is dreaming. Although generally terrestrial, Holyoak often dreams of being a marine mammal. He also dreams of being a flying fox, although cultural restraints usually require him to follow a diurnal sleep-cycle. When granted the opportunity Holyoak has the tendency of staying up all night drinking nectar. Mainly he requires oxygen, water and vegetables to continue his activities.”

~’WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ . . reformatted for HALLOWEEN / INTERVIEW MAG

LIVING IN AMERICA – TAKE TWO / RAINY DAY READING.

INTERVIEW MAGAZINE . . JUST PUBLISHED !!
a (really !!) PUFF PIECE . . ON ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ last week /
lol, re-formatted for HALLOWEEN, can you believe ?
. . yeah that’s how PUFF, PUFF. . PUFFY.

but, at least they called it . . art: as in . . “a performance piece” !!
the film has never been recognized by the ‘established’ NYC art world critics ?!!
I don’t have to name names – it’s all of them / & what a friggin’ retarded, sorry lot, too.

google: INTERVIEW MAGAZINE: THE SECRET HISTORY of a NYC BASEMENT / OCT 17, 2017
or try: interviewmagazine.com/film/we-live-in-public

it takes forever to load / they obviously want you to buy the hard copy.


PHOTO COURTESY: JOSH HARRIS WLIP ARCHIVES

YOUR BEST BET . . if you don’t know what ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ is . . .
is to download the feature length film – directly / it won director ONDI TIMONER an unprecedented second SUNDANCE BEST USA DOCUMENTARY AWARD in 2009.
her first, was for ‘DIG!’ btw – the cult doc on the notorious, hardcore indie bands . . THE DANDY WARHOLS & THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE !!
both bands . . having a big resurgence currently – in the land of Brooklyn.

ALFREDO MARTINEZ, the ‘real fake’ Basquiat forger . . ran the big shooting gallery in the sub-basement / where anybody who wanted / the Millennial party was technically called ‘QUIET’, and it was open to the public 24/7 . . for 2 weeks !!
where anybody . . could learn to shoot really really big assault rifles / at a professional gun range . . all set up under the guise of a ‘movie prop’, official NYC film props license and all.

NANCY SMITH, that’s me . . just in case you think I’m just an cyborg blogger / AI !!!!
plays an un-intended role in the film / right hand assistant to the tech/entrepreneur/web visionary who the film is all about: JOSH HARRIS / though I was originally in there to do a new age ‘quilting bee’, lol,
I got into a fight with a groupie who was making out with my so-called hubbie in a pod, and I knocked her unconscious in one well delivered & passionate slammer to the throat. she survived.
and therefore, rather unfairly – I got kicked out.
yeah it was me who got into the . . notorious fight, anybody surprised ?????
well:
1. she taunted me /
2. she was sitting on a flimsy plastic backyard garden chair / and the floor was concrete.

DEF, WATCH THE TRAILER: ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ / YOUTUBE


watch that . . . TRAILER !!!!!!


NANCY SMITH . . DRAMA QUEEN / ‘THE QUILTING LADY’,
in ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ / I even made the . . trailer !!


ME & THEO.
in our pod at ‘QUIET’ / DEC 1999 – JAN 2000.
this image was the poster for the film, when it had it’s NYC premiere at MoMA.
the beginning . . of the $1 million dollar art party, as with most things – was the BEST !!

ps: THEO . . is the 9 yr oldkid shooting the big guns, in the film.
damn straight, I wanted my kid to know how to shoot a gun / somebody on the good side has to know how to defend themselves.
& I was so right / about his generation being targeted, was I not.

since most of you are barely 30, maybe pushing 35 ?
and were, what ?
Theo’s age in 2000.
maybe all of 13 ?
at least hit the trailer
to see what the real gritty indie hardcore NYC underground was really like,
before you guys were even out of high school & Brooklyn . . was still just a place where bus drivers – lived.

better yet: download the movie.


center: JOSH HARRIS, he had just sold . . JUPITER.COM for $81 million dollars.

~KEVIN CHAN . . GRUMPY BERT / ‘FURRY FRIENDS WELCOME’

‘FATE, up against your will’

needing . . to lighten up ?
much !!

On A Personal note, very personal . . . . & it’s sad – so, be fore-warned.
2 young, carefree & the sweetest 15 yr. old boys you could ever know, & that I know from walking my dog, ever since she was a little 10 lb. puppy / last summer 2016 . . . got seriously hurt, one died and the other is fighting for his life after getting thrown over an 8 ft. high fence and tossed 30 ft. further . . by a hit & run young street thug speeding driver in Jersey yesterday, while they were bike riding.
I can barely contain my sadness.
they would always stop and pet my super friendly, now 90 lb. Akita, Zora & exclaim how big she was getting !!
Furry Friends . . also help you make human friends / and, help you to interface with ‘reality’, in a very special & very happy way.
Fate . . came down on these 2 boys, way too harsh, and way too soon.
I feel like I need to take a moment to be . . bio / human, & not just keep up the usual ‘keyboard’ banter / semi-impersonal art / computer-merged ‘dialog’, and . . share my feelings of sadness, and very human loss.
I want to remember them happy and laughing, & feel like they would like this . . gentle, funny, bittersweet thought, this pause of context, and ‘reach’ . . for greater humanity & meaning, in the wider & ongoing, always ongoing . . scheme of things.
with love & heavy hearts, from their giant panda / furry friend Zora, and her inconsolable minder.

‘FURRY FRIENDS WELCOME’ . . is down / SEPT 12 – OCT 15, 2017
but, you can still score a few unsold pieces . . .
in the: GRUMPY BERT . . ‘FURRY FRIENDS WELCOME’ / ONLINE STORE !!
