If you are a fan of Roy Lichtenstein’s work, you will definitely want to head over to Flag Art Foundation in New York and check out their exhibit of his work entitled “Intimate Sculptures.”

The exhibit is laid out as if you were in someone’s living room and Lichtenstein’s sculptures decorate the area.  It indeed feels intimate and you may find yourself wanting to be a squatter in this living space.

The C24 Gallery in New York has an interesting summer group show (yes, I realize those two phrases are mutually exclusive) at the moment called “Yell-o.”  It features 4 artists and here’s a bit about each one.  Nick Gentry from the UK (see above and below for a close up) uses old hard disks as a canvas.

Adele Mills

Adele Mills

American artist Adele Mills creates multi-dimensional artworks by combining slightly different photographs of the same object or two entirely different illusions, resulting in changing, seemingly moving image. She achieves this visual effect by creating a layered visual – a digitally printed photograph based on paper or linen, merged with painted acrylics on layers of transparent silk.

J Mikal Davis

American artist J. Mikal Davis, who is also known as Hellbent in the world of street art, paints geometric patterns that give his works a very cool 3-D effect.

If any of these works appeal to you, there are plenty more at the C24 Gallery, which is located at 514 West 24th Street in Manhattan.  “Yell-o” is on display through August 23, 2014.

RIP, Meshach Taylor

Sad news out of Hollywood.  Actor Meshach Taylor has died from cancer.  I met Meshach several times during the height of his run as Anthony on “Designing Women,” and he was always extremely nice towards his fans.  As you can see above, he had a beautiful autograph too.  Rest easy Meshach!  Thanks for all the laughs you’ve given us!

Francisco Franco by Eugenio Merino

New York!  Head over to Unix Gallery to see a great and controversial exhibit by Spanish artist Eugenio Merino entitled “Always Shameless.”  In the exhibit he takes the bodies of world dictators and preserves their bodies not in a cryogenics chamber, but instead inside a Coca-Cola refrigerator.  Genius!

Modern Day Zelig: An Accidental Encounter with Kim Kardashian

In case you needed more proof that I am a modern day Zelig, who is always at the right place at the right time, here’s another one for ya!  Yesterday I was out and about in SoHo with a friend when all of a sudden, we saw a TON of paparazzi on the street about to strike.  As I am no stranger to these types of scenes, we decided to see who it was.  It turned out to be Kim Kardashian.  What a let down!!!!  I thought it was going to be someone really good.  You can see the look of disappointment in my face in these paparazzi shots that ended up on the interweb.  Pretty funny.

It’s no secret that I think Kim Kardashian has absolutely ZERO talent and should not be famous AT ALL, let alone be the subject of international headlines every day, but I will say this – being subjected to that much paparazzi is almost as vile as her being famous enough to warrant that much.   There is no doubt in my mind that these kinds of scum of the earth (and those that enable this behavior by reading gossip sites and supporting these people are equally as guilty) will be responsible for someone’s death just for a picture.  These paparazzi were SCREAMING at passersby on the street to move out of the way with profanity and when Kim K. walked out of the building, it felt unsafe because there was so much chaos going on, a wise criminal could easily slip in and slip out after causing some sort of damage.

It’s a matter of time.  You can quote me on that.
