~JIM JOE VS . . TAYLOR McKIMENS ?? / no brainer: WIN WIN
INFINITY PACKAGE !!
meaning . . . ?
it’s a . . . TIE !!
A ‘TIE’ . . . TO DIE FOR.
PIX FROM THE OPENING OF:
‘JIM JOE – LOOK MEANS MEMORIZE’, APRIL 28 – MAY 22, 2016
THE HOLE, 312 BOWERY. DOWNTOWN, NYC
*mostly poorly stretched canvases – part of the charm, no doubt.
don’t laugh, if you have any of JOE BRADLEY’S . . early, cheaply made, & most definite poorly stretched human ‘geo’ ‘segment’ canvases, you are laughing all the way to the bank.
at any rate as you can see, I’m pretty much very bored with what’s out there, right now. and, it’s most definite turning into a summer of . . returning to the ‘scene of the crime’.
(just like the presidential race, don’t get me started.)
did that narrative go by – too fast ?
ok, here’s the long version:
lol, how did that run of pix work . . for ya ?
no joke, though about Taylor’s paintings becoming . . “increasingly un-affordable”, after his blockbuster show of . . ‘heads’, also at THE HOLE – this past FALL 2015, titled:
‘STOIC YOUTH’, running SEPT – OCT 2015.

I first saw, and was absolutely STUNNED BY . . this TAYLOR McKIMENS beaut – at the intense but brief snowflake of a pop-up, PAUL BRIGHT . . did for Taylor back in the winter of 2015.
‘TAYLOR McKIMENS COMMISSIONS BY BRIGHT LYONS, 2008 – 2015’ / OPENING FEB 17, 2015
POP-UP – WEST 19th St, CHELSEA, NYC / FEB 3 – 17, 2015.
that’s only about a year and a half ago. if you had half a brain, (or if I had half your dough) somebody else, would be laughing very very heartily all the way to the bank. as it is, it seems to have remained in Paul’s . . bright, and prescient hands, and it is now up for sale.
the price is SO way up there, nobody wants to divulge it. haha.
yep that high. I’d guess easily over $60, $80,000. maybe even more.
and deservedly, so.
