Gerhard Richter - Strip Paintings

Gerhard Richter – Strip Paintings. Now showing at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York through October 13, 2012.

New York!  Make sure you go and check out Gerhard Richter’s latest exhibit “Painting 2012” at the Marian Goodman Gallery.  There’s no way you can see the detail in these photos as they simply must be experienced in person.  I sat there for a good 30 minutes, letting my eyes lose a little focus and within seconds, I was no longer in a gallery but inside a Gerhard Richter painting!

In addition to numerous strip paintings which will definitely bend your noodle, as they say, a new glass sculpture from Richter is on display.  I was fortunate enough to meet the artist at the opening reception and he was gracious enough to take a photo with me as you can see below.  Thanks again Mr. Richter!

An Encounter with Artist Don Porcella + New Work

At the opening reception for Judith Schaechter’s latest exhibit Beauty and the Beef at the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York, I had an experience of art imitating life imitating art and it was really cool! Earlier this month at the Claire Oliver Gallery, I was finally able to put a name with the art I’d been seeing and enjoying for many months.  The work was done by the one and only Don Porcella and he has a very interesting style where he uses pipe cleaners in his mixed media sculptures.  His latest work “An Art Dealer and His Artist” was just installed at the gallery and the first time I laid my eyes on it, I fell in love. As you can see from the below picture, the art dealer has the artist on a leash (and you can draw your own conclusions about the brilliance of that statement).  In the middle of my admiration for this work, Don Porcella, the artist of this fantastic sculpture appeared!

An Art Dealer and His Artist by Don Porcella.

We had a really great conversation about art and music, my favorite things, and Don Porcella was super cool!  The Renaissance Man also mentioned that he’s in a band and he’ll be playing at a venue near you very soon.  If his music is anything like his art, it’s going to be very awesome, according2g.  As we were talking, I was professing my love for his latest work as we can all relate to being enslaved by our “owners,” yet sometimes we need to do what we’ve got to do to get to the next level.  Also, the sculpture represented a picture within a picture to me as hard work sometimes turns a person from the slave to the slave-master.  Seconds later, Don Porcella, imitating his art, reenacted that vision and I have to say, I loved every second of it.

An Art Dealer and His Artist and The Artist...

Thanks again to Don Porcella for creating really great art and being really cool!  You can see “An Art Dealer and His Artist” at the Claire Oliver Gallery, which is located at 513 West 26th Street in New York.
