birds of a feather

livia


meet livia. she comes to me via the amazing and fantastic girl who loves green . since i know you want one... you can get a warm cuddley softie of your own from her etsy shop

so mr. barney is a hard nut to crack. i'm still trying to figure out what my real reaction to his exhibition was. i want to see the movie too before i make up my mind. first thoughts: i'm intrigued by artist as athlete. i've fallen for the sheer materiality of his work. but... is spectacle enough? too much?? i do love walking the galleries of sfmoma with students though. it's like i get to see some things with fresh eyes... and speaking of fresh... mati is such a dear. she is so earnest and involved in her making it's delightful. she's making big decisions about her art and life and work and it's all there - openly and honestly. you HAVE to admire that! speaking of which i want to get this book as i'm on the hunt for some new to me books about making art and being an aritst for a class in the fall.


and no more words for me.... just pics:

it's amazing
when people
are so genuine-
open and honest
about who there are
and
what their art
means
to them...

i agree wholeheartedly about Mati. She's a great one. And I love it when she talks about her art process. It's strange how making art can tie you in such knots.

That book looks very intriguing to me as well. I'll put it on my list.
