~THE DOUBLE DIRTY DOZEN (& FRIENDS) – PIX FROM THE OPENING – PART I
FILE UNDER: well they can try all they want, but they can’t take away – our super-collider of a bio-reproductive sex drive.
sex and the machine, NOT !!
SOME PIX FROM THE OPENING – ‘THE DOUBLE DIRTY DOZEN (& FRIENDS)’ – THURS AUG 16, 2012
the big end-of-summer group show – at FREIGHT+VOLUME
the show will be up thru SEPT 22, 2012
JULES de BALINCOURT, ‘Early Childhood Development Center’, 2004. oil & spray paint on panel. 17 x 33 in.
it’s right at the beginning of the show, when you walk in. it was one of my faves !!
it set a great starting point for a sometimes over-the-top lascivious, and occasionally bodily-liquid splattered display.
super wicked !! ha.
the (somewhat equally startling, esp if you think about it) most ‘visceral’ smaller painting you can just catch, above it – is also by TOM SANFORD. it’s a portrait of porn star/performance artist SASHA GREY.
ERIK DEN BREEJEN had a low-key hued, signature word/color field optical ‘puzzle’ piece in the show – which bounced nicely against the more explicit and sexy gooey stuff. kind of hand-in-hand mental, or is that tongue-in-cheek – pictorial thematic (/) sex.
come to think on it – it could have – great sex – with the de Balincourt piece !!
who knows what goes on in that room, when the doors close, and the lights go dim !!
ERIK DEN BREEJEN, ‘It’s a Dirty World II’, 2012. acrylic on canvas, 42 x 54 in.
the image was more obscure in person, then how easily it came together for the camera.
buying-wise – this was the super value of the night.
(just a word to the wise.)
the loop played out – just as enchantingly – as the single frame promised.
here’s the ghost & no, she’s not in every frame !!
just a little note . . . to the hardcore fans:
check out today’s movie reviews in the NEW YORK POST !! ha.
ghosts in every one of ’em !!
from I see “I SEE DEAD PEOPLE” . . . all the way to “BOO-TI-FUL”. ha. … a classic take on ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ INARRIT’S – ghost-filled ‘BIUTIFUL’, or what !!
and even including a 3-1/2 starred (!!) animation review – Paranormal, oops, I mean – ‘Paranorman’ !! . . . deemed: “so good, it’s scary” !!
so, yeah Charlie F. you can just call me – Paranancy !! from now on !! . . . instead of ‘crack’ !!
though, so crackilicious !! – or what.
ghost avalanche !!
meanwhile creative time sand castles are just so much, play time !! for rich kids. dream on, Charlie.
they be your ‘girlfriends’, not mine !! SACHS & YELLIN, if there be a scarier hook-up than that – let me know.
HYE RIM LEE
so, talk about . . . WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN.
I mean – do avatars, digital doubles of our imagination – have more fun than we do ?
which is the ‘realer’ realm – human/bio or digital life – ?
to be answered – ?!!!!
is Creativity – the very definition of: INFINITY. loop de loop. playing out, f-o-r-e-v-e-r.
