NICK KUSZYK – ‘JAMMER SLAMMER’
MARCH 6 – MARCH 29, 2009
McCAIG WELLES – 129 ROEBLING ST. – WILLIAMSBURG – BROOKLYN
. . . while in BROOKLYN, decided to have another look at the NICK KUSZYK show.
curious to see if it held up to the initial excitement of the opening. and, guess what – yes – it did !!
a beautiful, intriguing – how about: entrancing !! show, of over 100, mostly small but highly detailed, carefully painted canvases of various sizes. over 40 had already sold, in the short of span of days that had passed since the opening last weekend. Prices range from $9,800 for ‘Jammer Slammer’ the largest and most detailed work, a horizontal piece which rests on a platform against the wall; to $3,000 for ‘Interdimensional Preritualscape Assemblage Moment’; onto a couple in the $1,400 range; on thru $700 and down thru $450 to a whole bunch of really great, really small ones for $40, $50 and $60. There is even one for $20 !! They are all storytelling in nature, color saturated, and strangely haunting. Not one repeats. The big ones just tell more complex stories and have more details, within larger overall compositions. The little ones can still pack a punch.
And, they are all – futuristic or imaginary landscapes – peopled by worker Robots !! Though the scale of the works vary, the scale of the Robots themselves pretty much remains the same. There’s whole cities, or communities, usually at war !! within the more complex narratives & landscapes of the bigger ones; and single robots – in the smaller ones. What’s also so interesting about the assortment on the wall, giving it an animated quality, apart from the animated tableaux – is that the depth of the individual canvases varies, some are shallow flat boards, others are on wooden stretcherbars – a couple of inches in depth.
Several aspects of the work absolutely captured my attention. Starting with capital C – Color. the intensity and variety of hues is amazing. Another capital C – Composition, esp. of the large pieces was riveting. The details were delightful. And best of all, a sense of storytelling – even in the small single frames – animates the visual goings-on. What’s with these little Robot guys, anyways ? they aren’t quite the hi-tech predator hardware of a scary sci-fi future. what’s so neat about these little worker guys, is that – they are like the loser tribe of robots !! pretty much just like us humans. at the mercy of both their degenerating, often garbage dump surroundings, and the bigger scarier meaner smarter guys from some other galaxy, who spaceship has just landed !! They scavenge among the garbage, they explode in the hands of their tormentors, they shield their children, and they spill their inner guts.
wow, . . . . looks just like Planet Earth. and real time, coming up fast, not the future, dude.
. . . at first I saw this as a Victory dance !!
but, now I’m thinking – maybe its a – surrender ?!!
say what – about: c-o-l-o-r !!
say what, about c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-i-o-n !!

. . . while at CINDERS we caught one of the last few copies of a sweet little silk screen poster made by JO DERY, for her book release party last week (Sunday March 8, 2009) at CINDERS. The book, ‘a book of stories’ is called: ‘QUIETLY SURE-LIKE THE KEEPER OF A GREAT SECRET’.
it’s available at CINDERS. ($10.95)
the poster, at 5-3/4 x 12-3/4 in. – was a little too large for our scanner – so here it is in 2 parts !!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
MAYA HAYUK – ‘SEXY GAZEBO: Believing is Believing’ – last weekend !!
the show runs: FEBRUARY 13 – MARCH 15, 2009
CINDERS – 103 HAVEMEYER ST – bet HOPE + GRAND – WILLIAMSBURG – BROOKLYN
HRS: WED-SUN: 1-7PM
read more about the show: here !!
well, anyone who knows her, knows Maya can be a pain – or is it only me. or is it me that’s the pain – o.k. – we both have big chips on our shoulders – I wonder why, could it have anything to do with lack of well-deserved recognition & success ? maybe.
at, any rate the show is all-out beautiful, totally striking and you know, positive – so, we find – we can’t in all conscience deny her, her moment in the sun, esp considering how bad – the rest of the global art world was – last week !!!
so, MAYA for you and KELI & STO at CINDERS – here’s some pix – and the rest of you couch potatoes – go see it – for yourself and maybe even – spring for a piece – to put up on the walls – and save everyone, in Brooklyn – that we love, from having to become ‘apt squatters’ !! no joke.
this is no way to treat our best most talented people – no matter the – $$ crisis.
Kelie was about to leave for CHILE for 2 and a half weeks. . She’s going down there with MAYA HAYUK and WOLFY and KAYROCK – to paint wall murals on the streets. . she says the culture there is full of street art and the powers that be – actually encourage muralists, who paint with brushes – and depict narrative scenes or abstract designs – as opposed to ‘taggers’ or ‘writers’ who use spray paint to leave initials-only tags.
she says if they see you roller brushing over the tags – they are very happy to let you paint to your heart’s content.
on the floor – a new BRIAN CHIPPENDALE – now going for over $2,600 and up – we told ya to score one a few years ago – when they were just about $1,000. what can we say. you can take a horse to water – you can’t make him drink.
STO – behind him – the display for his new – CINDERS VIP/MEMBERSHIP CLUB – you too, can join for $50.
see: their website for details – JOIN OUR NEW MEMBERSHIP CLUB !!
the CINDERS MEMBERSHIP CLUB – Brooklyn’s answer to the recession !!
that looks to be a great KELIE BOWMAN watercolor on the left.
an array of STO’s work – priced to go – on the right !!
‘FEEL THE DARKNESS’ – a (sad) sign of the times !! esp in the art world.

. . . well the island (aka Manhattan) was so depressing, the ART FAIR WEEKEND – BASICALLY BEING A BIG BUST – except for a few bright lights – that we thought we’d take our chances seeking inspiration & delight – as opposed to cheesy headlines, police brutality, and bad rip-offs – back over the East River – to Brooklyn – Williamsburg – to be specific – after scoring so well with that really fine NICK KUSZYK opening – ‘JAMMER SLAMMER’ – at McCAIG WELLES a couple of nights back. (more on that soon !!)
of course the new ‘WELCOME TO WILLIAMSBURG’ billboard – is this one: it proclaims, FREE MADOFF !
you’re free to make your own interpretation of just what that means, the best thing about art: freedom of thought – including your own !! but I’m pretty sure it’s meant to be ironic.
(at first glance I thought it said : FREE MADOFFI – as in rhymes with KHADAFFI !! …)
so cheesy headlines and commentary on rip-offs prevail here, too – must be in the air.
they do say 2009 – is – the year of JUSTICE.
in case you are wondering what that little scribble at the top of his forehead, says: it says – this !!
but pretty darn soon – like in the span of 2 short blocks, political & criminal ill winds disappeared – like a breath of fresh mountain air, like Switzerland in Brooklyn – with the sighting of the newly installed, for Spring – plastic flower arrangements in re-cycled old tire tubes – at The City Reliquary Storefront Museum !!
(though is that a local streetwalker – we caught on camera ? oh, well, let’s just move on.. enough with the political/sociological commentary – let’s do the neighborhood tour – just for art !! appreciation !!)
the museum seems to have a show up called ‘THE FIGHT FOR FAIR PRICE AND FAIR PROFIT IN DEPRESSION ERA NEW YORK’ – that runs JANUARY 30 – MAY 3, 2009 & which seems to center on: SPILT MILK !!
since the museum is only open to the public – SAT & SUN 12 noon-6pm – we couldn’t go in and find out – though we were certainly wanting too !!
read more about the show: here !!
note: “pivotal moments in the story are illustrated with miniature dioramas !!” – we’ve got to return on a weekend.
the display features vintage glass milk bottles and lace doillies representing, milk, I guess. pretty enough.
(the white yarn spilling out & swirling around – was the ‘spilt’ milk – though it sort of reminded us of the ‘intestines’ spilling out of the R. Robots inner guts !! at NICK KUSZYK’S – ‘JAMMER SLAMMER’ – you’ll see, soon enough !! we’ve got R. Robot on the brain !!)
the other window still features the PULLEY COLLECTION of GAIL MITCHELL – but, too much sunlight to get a good shot.

NEW YORK POST – WEDNESDAY MARCH 11, 2009/PHOTO CREDIT: KYODO
FILE THIS UNDER: MAYBE THE NYPD SHOULD GET 10% of ART SALES – AFTER THEY MAKE AN ARREST – FOR STREET ‘ART’ -&- UP THE STREET CRED & DOLLAR VALUE OF THE ART ? !! ESP WHEN THEY’RE HELPING AN ARTIST – WHOSE WORK OTHERWISE – HAS SLIPPED INTO CREATIVE DECLINE ?!!
. . . well, the NEW YORK POST knows a good thing when they they see it – it’s the best place to to catch the latest on the subway wars.
Japanese artist NARA, in town for a show, was arrested for scribbling a small smiley face on the First Avenue L train stop at 3:30 am on Feb 27, 2009, “when officers saw him using a marker on the wall.”
Rumors were swirling the night of his BOESKY opening, (Feb 28), that NARA had been arrested – but no info was made available at that time. why it surfaced today, almost 2 weeks later – is anybody’s guess, but since a street arrest – is big business and there are extensive quotes from his lawyer, and a nice array of photos – is it crossing the line to speculate – that Nara’s own people put this publicity in play ?
don’t think Nara set out to get deliberately arrested, and are we surprised for scribbling something as banal as a smiley face, no !! – but his people sure knew a good thing – when they saw it.
It seems like the NYPD might have caught on that publicizing these arrests rather than tapping down the illegal scrawlings – only feeds the flames, esp when the rather small penalty is exposed. In this case according to the Post: “He was released after spending the night in jail and will have the charges dropped if he does not get in legal trouble for a year, officials said.”
that’s kinda lame – considering that if you have a graff record of any kind, and you are Canadian for example – you can never visit this country, cross these USA borders ever. as Canadian artist MATTHEW FEYLD, who resides in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada knows only too well. He had some minor graff infraction/record from way back when he was a kid – and he was not permitted to cross the border to attend a group show at Cinders last year, in fact pretty much just exactly a year ago. (Feb 22- March 23, 2008). what gives ? M-O-N-E-Y, and celebrity. duh !!
following simple logic – you’d think catching a graff vandal from another country, as in Japan – in the act – on local shores – would get him, Nara – the permanent boot – ?
obviously money and celebrity – kicked in – a big factor in the American justice system, whether people like it or not, no one denies that having a good private lawyer trumps most situations. esp of this nature. and when your work retails in the $125,000 – $500,000 range – expect one helluva good lawyer to show up – on the dot – and the ‘well-greased’ kid gloves to come out. let me tell ya, if not, its definite not going to be one night in jail and all charges dropped. For damn sure it ain’t gonna be: ” ‘Like in the movies’, he [Nara] told Art In America.” dude, what movies do you watch ?
In fact the Post goes on to relate:
“At the opening for his exhibit at the Marianne Boesky Gallery in Chelsea on Feb 28, Nara, who lives in Tochigi, Japan called the arrest ‘a nice experience in my life’ in which he got to meet people he would not otherwise have encountered.” They should have left him in there for 24 hrs more – without a well-paid lawyer watching his back – he might not be singing such a sweet tune.
In fact Nara, whose works have gone at auction for as much as $1.5 million – was charged “with resisting arrest, making graffiti, criminal mischief, possession of graffiti tools and damaging property.” and apparently the only serious aftermath, apart from that social picnic of a night in a New York City jail – will be to add greater value to his now, shlocky work. “Staff at the gallery declined comment yesterday, but a Japanese television crew doing a piece on Nara said the arrest would only give the artist more street cred at home. ‘He’s going to get big notoriety for this here and in Japan’.”
the cops are definitely on the hot seat for graff – they are watching those surveillance cameras 24/7. so be warned. case in point. a well-informed, or sharp-eyed – passerby at the Williamsburg L train- LORIMER – stop – last weekend – was almost arrested, in the span of the 2 seconds it took to take out a small tourist-like digital camera, and try to snap 3 or 4 shots of a new (alleged) POSTER BOY ad. the image speaks to the current war zone – all on its own !! and from the intensity of the defacement – I would venture to say street artist, and poor boy, native New Yorker, i.e. homeboy – – Poster Boy’s recent run-in with the cops – wasn’t exactly – the “nice experience in my life” – million dollar tourist art celeb Nara was treated to !! nor was it for the few anonymous others, who seem to have added their own personal feelings re the NYPD – to the ‘collage’.
so, final words: make sure when you vandalize the sparkling clean property here, even with a little marker scrawled smiley face !! that, you have a big gallery behind you. otherwise the word out on the street seems to be that your nights in jail & your journey through the court system – will be no lark in the park. and if you are a regular tourist – as opposed to a celeb – chances are – you won’t be coming back.

also of interest, the gallery notes that:
in August 2009, R . NICHOLAS KUSZYK will have a children’s book coming out.
Published by Penguin Group Inc, it’s titled: ‘R Robot Saves Lunch’ !!
Nick told us a little background on the book – at the opening – specifically – how it came to be !!
A friend of his, who is a Pilates instructor, was wearing one of Nick’s limited production T-shirts with a Robot – on it – during a class – when one of the students admired it, and asked for contact info on the artist. short story made even more brief: the student called Nick and said, hi I loved the T-shirt your friend was wearing, I’m the head of Penguin Children’s Books – wanna do a book ? – the rest, as they say – is history !!
of course !! – we got some great pix at the opening, including the amazing mural wall Nick, with the help of a few good pals slinging paint brushes – put up just for the show.
they’ll be coming up shortly !!
‘DOG POOP’ – by – TAYLOR McKIMENS. whoever says artists aren’t – relevant – or prescient !! – eat this !!
THE ARTLOVERS – DOG POOP DIARIES – SPRING 2009.
DOG POOP !! PATRICK McMULLAN, THE ARMORY & ART DUBAI – how’s that for a bunch of losers all in one sentence !! and . . . .
* YO, if anyone knows LAURA WATSON at KCD – tell her she’s on artlovers, too !! *
* a clueless moron if I ever did see one !! don’t let HER ruin YOUR art par-tay !! *
* let her work – her magic for BANANA REPUBLIC !! *
* what Banana Republic vs. the NEW MUSEUM – no diff ?!! * * see: below !! *
* SAT MARCH 7: how pathetic to see PATRICK McMULLAN whining in PAGE SIX today – about how he got shut out of the VANITY FAIR OSCAR PARTY – because Getty/WireImage had the ‘exclusive rights’ !! what’s the matter Patrick – can’t take your own medicine ? . . . He’s been acting like an over-grown tantrum-throwing ape demanding exclusive rights and taking paychecks out of the hands of (smarter) art world shutterbugs since forever in this town !! and its the kiss-of-death for the parties concerned – cause he doesn’t know the turf at all. he couldn’t tell a JOE BRADLEY from a JOE GRILLO – if his life, or those of the badly suited young clones – he sends out in his stead – depended on it . .
plus he can’t photograph art, either – because its all just “ambient background” !! ….
name names ? sure !! ART REVIEW MAGAZINE (2002): Patrick demanded that the other photog handling the downtown scene (one Nancy Smith) be tossed along with her pay check – if they wanted h-i-s uptown photos of wanna-bes air kissing.. he holds the same stranglehold on the WHITNEY parties, incl their BIENNIAL bashes. no wonder, there’s no excitement around that played-out gig any more !! the most recent occasion where he has been the death-kiss-of-the-art-party ? how ’bout the slow boring, not to say embarrassing, decline of the p.r. rush for the recent ELIZABETH PEYTON retrospective at the NEW MUSEUM !! some moron of a clueless media consultant for KCD WORLDWIDE, named LAURA WATSON !! let him pull his uninspired monopoly shtick there – and this despite, GAVIN BROWN, who reps ELIZABETH PEYTON !! – inviting another photog – the same NANCY SMITH – to cover the opening, specifically for his gallery !! at least Getty/WireImage pays for their exclusive rights !! Patrick just whines and annoys the hell out everybody – never mind single-handedly killing the entire scene & taking the WHITNEY & THE NEW MUSEUM down with him.
* and, while we are talking ’bout dog poop – COLIN DeLAND must be rolling over in his grave *
* HEADS-UP LADIES !! don’t EVER send your ever lovin’ hubby out art shopping alone. check out what the ARMORY’S got waiting for them !! ASHLEY DUPRE – MOVE OVER !! *
. . . more POOP – the ARMORY.
coverage of that fair used to dominate the whole weekend. this year, 2009 – it didn’t even score one line in the NEW YORK TIMES !! and basically – the only other coverage elsewhere – amounted to – a who’s who – of who didn’t buy in. and no, it wasn’t just the economy – it was the total lack of inspiration, not to mention – art brains – on the part of the corporate shopping mall-like organizers. the most interesting item to surface – was the following academic parlay on the newly installed – ‘ESCORT’ service – now available, for free, at the ARMORY. I guess, if you’re gonna try to sell art and you have no brains or talent, that’s the way to go.
. . . According to that usually staid & totally behind-the-curve BRIT PUBLISHED – PSEUDO ART/TABLOID/PAID-FOR-AUCTION-RAG: THE ART NEWSPAPER:
“The Armory’s latest innovation is their ‘Docent Program’ – whereby overseas collectors, important visitors, or just the plain curious can call the VIP HOTLINE to have them escorted around …. [their word, not mine !!] …. the event by a COMPLIMENTARY docent worthy of any museums.”
[If I were a museum … o-u-c-h !!]
not only that .. it goes on to say:
“as Kari MORRIS, executive assistant to her brother, show president Paul, puts it: ‘Our specially-selected docents have the minds of academics and the bodies of centrefolds’.” !! !! !!
what kind of business are they running there, anyways ?
and, where pray tell – where dodoo – they find all these gorgeous academic museum docent-worthy bombshells ? who, also claim to have a handle on the CONTEMPORARY ART WORLD, no less – !! we thought Larry ‘Gogo’ Gagosian – had the monopoly on this kind of brainy leggy bodacious talent. it’s probably more like: skanks with graduate degrees – on the prowl. BRETT MICHAELS – MOVE OVER !!
the article only gets worse, or more comic – depending on whether you have a hubby out alone on the island – ‘art shopping’ – it goes on to quote Kari, as she compares their star docent … “known as ‘kisser’ ” – a New Zealand hottie, oops I mean art academic – “claiming to have had a Kennedy amongst her walk-thru clients” – to her … “rival art-history expert – a delicious Russian blonde codenamed Nataliya.” !!
like we said. COLIN De LAND must be rolling over in his grave.
maybe he’s saying – I’d rather have a dog poop on my grave !!
seriously, I couldn’t make this stuff up in my wildest dreams – its right there in black ink & white on PAGE 2.
in the Diary Section.
THE ART NEWSPAPER/THE ARMORY SHOW EDITION/4-5, MARCH 2009.
it’s handed out for free at the fair – if you don’t believe me.
the item – it’s the lead item on the left hand side – doesn’t list an author. I think it’s supposed to be funny.
‘DIFFERENT EVERY DAY’ – artwork by STO.
. . . more POOP – ART DUBAI !! somebody get that SHEIK a YIDDISH DICTIONARY, PRONTO !!
of course, the other really funny quote, also unintentional, I think — surfaced in the same broadsheet.
on PAGE 4.
in an article titled: ‘INTERNATIONAL FAIRS/FINANCIAL SITUATION FORCES GALLERY WITHDRAWALS’.
ANDREW GOLDSTEIN reports:
“The Armory is not the only fair to see some exhibitors melt away. More than two dozen galleries who showed at ART DUBAI last year will not be back when the fair returns later this month. ‘We just decided not to do it, it’s a big schlep said, New York dealer Bonni Benrubi.”
yo !! – do they even have – YIDDISH DICTIONARIES – in DUBAI – or do ya think they are casually familiar with the term: schlep ? !!!
in case not, SCHLEP – is New York – for – not worth the time of day.
ok. so we don’t wanna just leave a bad taste in your mouth.
so, QUESTION: just how prescient were those poop-painting artists ?
ANSWER: FALL 2007 – was the magic season for all things that smell bad and look gross on the sidewalks.
TAYLOR McKIMENS exhibited his dog poop painting in 2007. Here he is at the opening, Sept 14, 2007.
The show was called ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ and it was curated by KATHY GRAYSON. And it rolled out at, as an early hit – in the then, newly re-located to Brooklyn – THE JOURNAL GALLERY.
another TAYLOR McKIMENS painting – from the same show – an early precursor of his Drip family of homeboys – also caught that McMULLAN/ARMORY/DUBAI vibe !!
see more on the show: 2007-10-24 !!
and, let’s give Sto from CINDERS – his fair shake – at kickin’ the Dog Poop, too !!
STO at the opening of his solo show – ‘My Prayer for You’ – running Oct 12-Nov 11, 2007, at CINDERS.
wow – 2 dog poop paintings in the same season – how rare is that – !!
looking back – STO had some other great ahead-of-their-time takes on today’s “ambience” . . . as Patrick so knowingly – calls art – on his website.
STO – INTERNAL – MAP OF ANXIETY .
STO – ‘I AIN’T GOING WITHOUT A FIGHT, YOU PECKERHEAD !!’
there was actually a dog – an ugly one at that, but for sure, NYC accessory fashionable at the opening !!
we were hoping that was a little real poop deposited next to the appropriate piece of greenery Sto so thoughtfully provided, but no – its just a piece of the faux greenery !!
the sign says: “clean up the mess you make.”
fun or what !! here’s 2 more !!
STO – ‘COMIN’ TO GET YA’ – aka – artlovers’ new mantra !!!
STO – ?? !!!
