~FRANCIS BACON vs GoPRO . . GoPRO WINS

talk about bringing home the bacon !!

and only $400 a pop.

it was fun !! to watch the old Sixty Minute geezers talk to the young GoPRO founder !!

see: How GoPRO BECAME the BEST SELLING CAMERA in the WORLD

watch: GoPRO . . . YouTube

talk about art. bromance, heroes, and even a new . . BILLIONAIRE !!
the company’s insane, crazy .. great !! surfer founder !! NICHOLAS WOODMAN, 37.
worth $1.3 Billion + counting.
it’s a new world.
and, yes, that’s a billion, with a B.

but more important. talk about .. high definition,
and .. damn. that’s the end of the hand-held camera blues !!




~BACON TRIPTYCH . . worth $85 Million ?

meanwhile, up in the higher echelons of the art world, far far from the ‘mean’ streets of East Williamsburg . . this is what the art world looks like.

it’s auction action week..

SO, is that package of BRITISH BACON . . worth $85 million ?

that’s what CHRISTIE’S is going to try to find out to-nite.

they are putting a FRANCIS BACON triptych from 1969, up for auction with a starting price of $85 million .. “the highest asking price in auction history.”

last year SOTHEBY’S asked $80 million for EDVARD MUNCH’S ‘The Scream’ and realized a record sale of .. $120 Million.

first of all, you have to realize, it’s all about the numbers .. uptown.
the bigger the numbers .. the better the bragging rights.
numbers is really the name of the game, uptown.
it’s pretty much really all these these guys know.
it’s not a bad thing to know, but it’s not about . . the art.

though, according to the WALL STREET JOURNAL “Millions can hinge, for example on a painting’s palette: If an artist slathers something in gold or red, auctioneers say they will invariably price it higher than similar paintings covered in gloomier hues.” listen up, my grad students.

and duh, “SEX also sells”.
what did you think ?


‘Three Studies of Lucian Freud’ 1969, by FRANCIS BACON.

being myself, a humble denizen of the cutting edge, the underground, I really don’t find all of this so exciting. though Edvard Munch’s ‘Scream’ is good .. it was unrecognized and underground for a long time. Francis Bacon, not so much.
in fact: meh.

there’s eggs, and then there’s free range eggs.

I would find the auction action .. so much more interesting if these guys were also great collectors. and by that I mean guys who could go for a walk on the wild side, the Lower East Side. you know, downtown . . . and be able to stick in their thumbs, and pull out plums.

who cares about who bought BASQUIAT for $30 million, tell me about the early collector who had the savvy, guts and brains .. to buy in at $10,000. $50,000. $120,000.


FRANCIS BACON, left and LUCIAN FREUD, right .. in the streets of London, 1974.

what a bunch of posers.
am I allowed to say I can’t stand these guys. I hate their paintings. they are so damn academic, and they never ever .. take off. they are like, grad school .. grade.
alcoholic grad school .. grade.

the only British artist I hate worse, is DAVID HOCKNEY.

no wonder DAMIEN HIRST was able to come along, live wire that he was, and wipe the floor. tap out the register.

and, then here we go again with the ‘repressed’ male homosexuality merry-go-round. didn’t I just read that about .. about NORMAN ROCKWELL.
b-o-r-i-n-g.

from the WALL STREET JOURNAL, about FRANCIS BACON:

“A charismatic man who battled alcoholism and asthma, he split his time between the bars of London’s Soho neighborhood and the expansive studio he was given at London’s Royal College of art. That studio, for the first time, gave him enough space to work on three canvases at once, set up side by side.

BACON was the provocative darling of London’s art circles, but historians say he was smitten — platonically and possibly more so – with FREUD, his younger friend and peer. Freud was wiry and witty, the grandson of Sigmund Freud and a painter known for his psychologically charged portraits . .”

it’s all about the bacon .. and where it splatters, no matter how you cut it.

~YELLOW DOGS . . BAND MASSACRE / updates

THE YELLOW DOGS .. BAND MASSACRE. 4 DEAD IN EAST WILLIAMSBURG.

BREAKING NEWS.

TRAGIC. HASH just told me ..

I have pix of the band, give me 5 mins to process this.

they played at EASTERN DISTRICT, when it was .. really, really happening, in BUSHWICK. 2010.
they actually lived under JOSH, JOSH HARRIS when he was based in Williamsburg a few years back.
they were well, to be honest: brats . . ex-pats from IRAN.
‘brats’ as in . . the real deal. art-wise. alive.
full of life. ready to take over the world.
very powered-up in opposition . . to their background.

they were a very explosive bunch. live wires.
great music. really hard-core and driving. great band to see live.
they were electric, crazy, and melodic . . as hell, the music. and, I guess the whole package.
it’s said they liked JOY DIVISION. zipped around on skate boards, and threw all night parties.

R.I.P. . . . YELLOW DOGS. FOUR DEAD IN WILLIAMSBURG.

OBASH .. the lone survivor.

UP-DATE: MON NOV 11, 2013 – 5:46 PM

it’s been a truly dark, stormy, sad cold day here in NYC. the wind wails: up to no good.

as the pieces fall into place we learn only 2 members of the band were wiped out. and that’s way more than we want, if you heard them, or not . . the young dead men were brothers: guitarist SOROUSH FARAZMAND, 27, known as LOOLOOSH, and his older brother, the band’s drummer, ARASH FARAZMAND, 28, known as SINA. very sad.

a third young Iranian musician, ALI ESKANDARIAN, 35, was also shot and killed.

the shooter, RAEFE AKHBAR, 29, a bass player and currently said to be from a rival Iranian indie band called the FREE KEYS . . after the attack, he then went up on the roof and shot himself. it was a pretty big gun, an assault rifle, .308 caliber. the police are said to be looking into how he got his hands on it.

see: 2 Members of Yellow Dog shot . . USA TODAY

UP-DATE: TUES NOV 12, 2013 – 9 AM
the shooter is now being identified, in the WALL STREET JOURNAL this morning .. as ALI AKBAR MOHAMMADI RAFIE.

“Once he got kicked out of the FREE KEYS for being problematic, the Yellow Dogs stopped associating with him as well,” said ASHELY AYERS, the band’s publicist from REQUIEM.

the article goes on to state that “Mr. Rafie’s falling out with the bands came about a year ago, and was over his selling band equipment without knowledge of the other musicians.”
the article also stated that it’s thought he transported the rifle, to the attack site .. in in a guitar case.”

Ms. AYERS is also quoted as saying that the third musician tragically gunned down, singer ALI ESKANDARIAN, 35, though not a founding member of THE YELLOW DOGS, had performed with the band on a tour last March.

“The Yellow Dogs fled Tehran, Iran in 2010 for the U.S. and found an instant audience. They were considered rising stars, playing South by Southwest in Austin, Texas in 2010 and opening for the Black Lips at Webster Hall in April 2011.”

~NOAH BECKER . . LODGE

‘NOAH BECKER’
opened THURS, NOV 7, 2013
the show runs thru DEC 1, 2013
THE LODGE GALLERY – 131 CHRYSTIE ST – LOWER EAST SIDE, NYC
HRS: TUES-FRI: 2PM – 10PM / SAT+SUN: 12PM – 10PM


NOAH BECKER is a “an acclaimed oil painter” who has presented many exhibitions, including those at international museums on his resume. Interestingly he is also a Jazz saxophonist, and .. an arts writer.
along with being a contributing writer for Art in America, Interview, Canadian Art, the HuffPost, and ARTVOICES, he is the founder of Whitehot Magazine.


NOAH BECKER, ‘Self Portrait #2′, oil on canvas’, 24 x 30 in.


what I found fascinating was how the portrait, changed ‘aspect’ . . just the way a face does in reality.


and that seemed to be the case with all the self-portraits here, no matter the historical influence and / or background.
no wonder Mr. Becker seems fascinated himself, with his capturing his own image.


NOAH BECKER, ‘Self Portrait #2 (BASQUIAT), oil on canvas, 30 x 40 ins.
and to the right:
NOAH BECKER, ‘Self Portrait #2’, oil on canvas. 24 x 30 in.

he does kinda play the genre, like a musical instrument. riffing, and borrowing, but keeping himself, front and center. in a nice tension of .. reality meets ‘fluidity’.

KEITH SCHWEITZER and JASON PATRICK VOEGELR.

KEITH SCHWEITZER is also the Director of Public Art, Fourth Arts Block / FABnyc.


THE LODGE GALLERY is a new presence on the Lower East Side, I believe this is only their second show.
ENVOY Gallery, which moved on to a bigger space, was the former inhabitant.

. . but LODGE has something that probably makes it a game changer, just beyond that discreet door at the back of the exhibition space.


where we found artist BILLY SULLIVAN, who shows at BARTOLOMI,


and that would be a full, and rather gorgeous, clubby bar !!


yep, “lodge” is a good name.
they seem to want to make this .. the place – to come relax, and hang out. and why, not !!


when the other galleries close at 6, this place .. goes on thru 10 PM.

~ALEXANDRA EASTBURN . . OPENING PIX

ALEXANDRA EASTBURN – ‘Your Little Garden is Shuddering’
opened THURS NOV 7, 2013
the show runs thru THURS NOV 28, 2013
166 MOTT ST – LOWER EAST SIDE, NYC

with the big art auctions in town next week, the art world, esp the contemporary art scene .. is boiling like a pot of water on a very hot stove.

ALEXANDRA EASTBURN’S debut NYC solo show was no exception.

although a relative ‘unknown’ from out-of-town, the opening on Mott St was fab, fab and more fab.
the crowd never ceased. it was just wave after wave of curious, bright, trend-setting young New Yorkers, non-stop. the work was really well received, and the buzz never stopped.
yeah, it was exciting.

there’s nothing a happening New Yorker likes better than when the ‘content’ – lives up to the buzz.
there’s nothing a happening New Yorker likes better . . than the next big talent.
and being the first . . to have seen it.
there’s nothing like seeing a new face, that’s young and ready .. presenting a new fresh vision.
. . and everybody is feeling the vibe.


166 MOTT ST – AN ALTERNATIVE ART SPACE.
when the big blue chips .. are gunning for upwards of $30, 40 .. 50. $80 million ? .. haha, there’s nothing better than being at the very edge of the ‘real’ underground. as it is happening.
in real time !!

essentially, excitement-wise – no diff.
Where are you going to make the biggest bang – for your buck ?
in my mind it’s a – no brainer !!
on the wild side, of course !! the underground – where it all begins.

ALEXANDRA EASTBURN originally hails from Hot Springs, Arkansas .. but is currently based in MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, where she received a BFA in Fine Arts from Memphis College of Art in 2012.


from left: AMY LI the show’s curator, and the founder of 166 MOTT with her visiting artist .. ALEXANDRA EASTBURN.

ALEXANDRA’S previous exhibitions include ‘Public Housing’ at the University of Memphis, a large-scale paper-mache installation, ‘Imagine the Angels of Bread’ at the Holy Underground, a DIY space in Baltimore, Maryland, and ‘Wild Life’, a solo exhibit at the new Glitch Gallery in Memphis.


detail, ALEXANDRA EASTBURN.
Right Wall series: ‘A Funeral for Dead Ends’, ink on wax paper, 18 x 72 in.
($5,000)

AMY LI writes about this exhibit:
“The exhibition is about using unconventional spaces for art – presenting objects, process and images. Through a series of illustrations and sculptures, strange places are exemplified as a metaphor for change, transformation and function. The use of 166 Mott is not necessarily an alternative to the white box spaces but rather, a point of independence, where works are striking and seen with more meaning. It is about the ability to revitalize surroundings and use them as a reminder of nostalgia and purpose.”


detail, ALEXANDRA EASTBURN.
Left Wall series: ‘ Two Quidnuncs’, ink on wax paper, 18 x 72 in.
($5,000)

ALEXANDRA first coats the wax paper, butcher paper – with black ink, using a large Japanese brush, and then scratches and incises away, to lay bare .. her poetry, her art, her mystery, her ancient icons, historical lore & even some contemporary ‘forces’.
in short: the stuff of myths. visions, feelings, and dreams.


detail, ALEXANDRA EASTBURN.
Left wall series, ‘Reluctant Gatekeepers and Mythical Intruders.’

it was interesting to watch the crowd interact, gaze deeply into the striking technique, and many layered details, and textures . . of the work.
it not only felt so new and fresh, but also, a bit old soul .. and a bit like a running journal.
Asian, Byzantine . . even some retro art deco jazz age.

but, mostly I couldn’t help thinking how great, these pieces would look, racing along a wall .. in a room of one’s own.


detail, ALEXANDRA EASTBURN. ‘Reluctant Gatekeepers and Mythical Intruders.’

Ghosts . . and unearthly messengers, aside. myths, feelings, etc.
Black and White . . is having such a recurrence this season.

if you haven’t seen ‘NEBRASKA’, the movie . . you are missing out.
it totally unspools in the cinematic equivalence of ‘silence’ . . black and white, all the way.
across the big screen. just awesome.

at the opening: ALEX and KALI, visiting from Paris.
they are here for 3 months. they are both into fashion, and make ‘fashion’, as well.
no doubt.


HASH HALPER makes fashion happen too, he’s here to cover the event for FRANK.


MAX, a local artist who studied at COOPER UNION, drops by, too.


BUNNY, a stylist, among other things .. and a friend of Alexandra’s, who is actually graciously hosting Alexandra’s stay here, in NYC.


SEAN LINCOLN, another friend of Alexandra’s from Memphis ..
he has been here in NYC for quite awhile helping out with the Storm Sandy re-construction, out in the Rockaways.


CHRIS OWEN, also from Memphis. also helping out with the Storm Sandy reconstruction in the Rockaways.
I’m thinking, wow . . Memphis seems to be a very happening place.


MELISSA DRASBY and WC BEVAN.
WC BEVAN had work in the last show at 166 Mott. WILLIAM CODY BEVAN.
he also photographs art shows, in partnership with HASH, for FRANK . . and yes. all in BLACK & WHITE.
yep, black and white film in that old school 35mm camera – he carries.

WC BEVAN originally hails from OHIO, but moved to Memphis to go to art school. art school didn’t stick, but Memphis, and the music scene there – did, for awhile, anyways. he now lives and works in NYC.
while in Memphis he did meet Alexandra Eastburn, and in fact it was he – who introduced AMY LI to ALEXANDRA, and thus it is WC who we have to thank . . for this great show, and time.


ANTHONY HADEN-GUEST made the scene too.
that’s the night’s artist: Alexandra Eastburn on the right, surrounded by her work,
and it’s looking . . good.


and, finally I get to meet up with Hash’s other bother, (he has 3) .. ASHER LEWIS, on the left.
ASHER is involved in a ‘start-up’ . . ‘AUTEUR ARTS’ dedicated to indie filmmaking.
with him on the right, is his lawyer . . copyright and intellectual property lawyer, NATHANIEL KLEINMAN.
remember that name, you might need him one day, too.


curator, art show producer, and FRANK correspondent HASH HALPER . .with artist DERRICK FAIRBANKS.
we will give Hash the last word . .
why ?
because he’s been really energizing the downtown scene, to the max. this year,
and for sure . . there’s more to follow.

A GREAT NIGHT.
A GREAT SHOW.

WELCOME TO NEW YORK CITY . . ALEXANDRA EASTBURN.

‘UNRAVELING REALITIES’ – CURATED BY HASH HALPER and AMY LI
OCT 17-31, 2013
166 MOTT ST – LOWER EAST SIDE, NYC


the show’s curators: HASH HALPER and AMY LI .. an awesome duo.
166 MOTT ST, an alternative art space is located right at the outermost intersection of . . Chinatown meets Little Italy.


ALFREDO MARTINEZ and AMY LI.


WC BEVAN checks out Alfredo’s new work . .


ALFREDO MARTINEZ, ‘Iulia Longam Posteritatem (Julia for remote posterity)’.
mixed media, incl coffee and Acrylic paint, paper collage on wood. 31 x 26 in.
($2,500)

I have never seen Alfredo paint a woman’s face, before.
I think it’s amazing. beautiful, radiant.
realistic, poetic, one-of-a-kind.


detail, ALFREDO MARTINEZ, ‘Iulia’.

he uses coffee ‘pigment’ to get those darker stains and deep red/brown hues.
the hair, eyes and red lips are – drop dead, great.
damn, the nose is good too. those flaring nostrils, stand off-ish .. and, passionate.

he also looks to have used plenty of gel medium, or maybe just ordinary household paper glue . . the work has an amazing shine to it.
an interesting contrast to the paper collage foundation.

I’ve seen Alfredo paint men, before. he liked that same .. close-up face format, then too.
notably in the ‘convict’ portraits he did when he was in the big house, here in NYC .. serving a two year sentence for art fraud. ca. 2002.
but I didn’t know he could paint, women . . like that.
guns, women. check.


detail, ALFREDO MARTINEZ, ‘Iulia’.
that’s where he perfected that hair .. ‘craft’, in prison.
it’s nice, I really like it . . very graphic, and very ‘picturesque’.


detail, ALFREDO MARTINEZ, ‘Iulia’.
trust a forger . to have a lock-down logo, and . . signature.
and one-of-a-kind paper . . he couldn’t get his hands on any art paper in prison. so he learnt to make his own ‘collaged’ paper – from scrap paper, from an old Russian inmate.
in the absence of any art supplies, he also learnt to make color ‘pigments’ from tipping little instant coffee packets into cups of water.
I guess paper glue was available. or did he use flour and water.
something, like that.


this is an interesting group of ‘private’ snips of his, or somebody’s .. life.
it feels a little scary. who has .. your info ?
you can see the edges of the work, which make for a very 3D presence, even in fact a kind of .. ‘shallow’ sculpture. it’s definitely more an ‘object’, than a piece of ‘paper’

OCT 17-31, 2013
166 MOTT ST – LOWER EAST SIDE, NYC


M. HENRY JONES and RACHEL AMODEO at the opening.
besides this past weekend’s screening of her indie cult film, ‘WHAT ABOUT ME’, RACHEL had two pieces in the show, both very . . ‘early’ East Village.

M. HENRY JONES is a long time collaborator with RACHEL, and in fact they have a 15 year old son, together.
M. HENRY JONES is listed on the credits of ‘WHAT ABOUT ME’ . . as co-cinematographer, along with MARK BRADY.


RACHEL AMODEO, ‘Emerald Fairy’, mixed media, 21 x 21 in. (framed).
($2,000)

a touch magical, no ?
yes. yes. and yes. for all the grit . . it was a very magical time.


check out . . the uniqueness of the surfaces, and the ‘opalescence’. which is technically .. very magical, too.
mother-of-pearl-like. against a ‘metallic’ feel.
plus there’s a really nice bounce of ‘light’, and the detail design is awesome.
not something you get to see . . every day.


M. HENRY JONES is a talented artist in his own right, too, and in many fields.
he does mostly 3-D animation, as well as ‘Lenticular’ and . . ‘fly’s eye 3D’ Photography.
. . as well as putting out the occasional short doc/documentary.

he did take that wonderful portrait of WC BEVAN at Hash’s show on Peel St, A MAN OUT OF TIME.


in fact you can watch some of his stuff, and get an idea of his graphic sensibilities,
here on his:. . SNAKEMONKEY TV


where you will also find, his very touching ode to the late, great, and totally missed . .
master silkscreener and East Village war hippie . . MARK ENGER of EXPLODING SKY.

watch: MARK ENGER at work, in his studio in Newark, not too long before he departed for that great cowboy resting place . . in the sky.

M. HENRY JONES at the opening of his . . ‘THE DEPTHOGRAPHY SHOW’, NOV 15, 2002.
at THE PROPOSITION GALLERY. back when it was, and .. in Chelsea.

it was actually one of the very first shows I ever tried to deliberately photo-document, that wasn’t someone who was just . . a friend of mine, having an opening.


M. HENRY JONES, lenticular art work . . in ‘THE DEPTHOGRAPHY SHOW’, FALL 2002.

it was such a wild concept. as you walked by the images shape-shifted.
images, sch-images . . far-out cartoon art !!
one of my very fave shows . . ever.
for real.
totally off the wall.
still keep the pix .. in my best-of-ever top drawer hard copy album,
