i cajole my students to look at art. every week - i tell them go look at art over your weekend. what's good for the goose is good for the gander, right?
i went to see nicole phugrasamee fein's show at hosfelt gallery. she and i were a year apart in grad school. she is the closest living artist i can think of to agnes martin. her watercolors are subtle and amazing. so perfectly imperfect. [but mostly perfect].
the highlight of the visit was definitely surabhi saraf's video FOLD
a striking tribute to unacknowledged work [this was skillfully put by my friend kelly inouye -i think you might even hear her say it in the clip below]. this is one of the most stunning and beautiful video pieces i've ever seen. i want it. and for me to say that about video ? hell might be freezing over.
i really wanted to go to the opening for my friends jay kelly and marc d'estout at jack fischer gallery, but i couldn't make it. so i stopped in today instead.
the conversation between marc and jay's works was really great. you should see the show if you are local.
over and out on the art report...
