~ PIZZA IN THE RAIN / PITR . . .
PITR . . is also an urban-focused, ultra-graphic artist, who showed alongside DANNY SOBOR in that 2 man DEC 2015 show, ‘JUNGLE’
. . at CHICAGO TRUBORN GALLERY.
this is a recent post of his.
it’s interesting, because like many Instagram posts ‘in the genre’, it shows the scale, of the drawing, and the art ‘utensil’, in this case – a fine point watercolor brush. it feels very immediate. and intimate.
I also really like it, because it’s got this great throw-back ‘Beavis & Butthead’ vibe.
the profile. the white empty, but still expressive eyes. the macabre aspect.
PLUS: this is exactly how I feel right now – that slit throat, dis-associated from his n body proper.
yes !! – that’s me. no doubt about it.
I’m totally short circuiting, I just can’t keep up with posting all the OPENING PIX – I take in real time. it’s impossible. I am already behind by 7 posts !!
and it’s just been Feb. what happened to . . Feb !!
too much. I’d rather run and catch the shows, then stop and post the pix. obviously.
plus, I like to stop and think about things, sometimes. imagine that.
but, mostly it’s because . . I’m so contrarian !!
even to myself.
what ? a great celebrity-driven + awesome deep large format naked photos . . opening, GREGORY CREWDSON, no less – lol.
what ? TOMOO GOKITA at JOHNSON TRADING ?
what ? the new kids on the block, GRETTA JOHNSON & ANDY CAHILL, who I just meet last week at CANADA, pop up the very next weekend. and the even newer ones: LAUREN HILL, and NICHOLAS MOENICH at his show – at the new Brooklyn apt pop-up, run by MICHAEL FLEMING . . called MOUNTAIN ?
and, what about that YALE MFA GRAD CLASS crew at EMMY THELANDER’s closing. omg. omg. my head is just cut off from my body.
I gotta get on it.
put this site back together – like Humpty Dumpty.
in the meantime – of course, total distraction of the Instagram feed – reigns !!
so, take just one more little ride of the ‘URBAN IMAGINATION’ – with me / SKILLS !!
and, then tomorrow, I promise – I will get back on schedule.
PIZZA IN THE RAIN, ‘Flight 872 (OAK – ORD) / 4:15 p.m.’
love how he articulates urban architecture.
damn. that’s good.
steely, and POETIC. imaginary, and fierce. realist & playful. graphic and, novel.
