Philip Akkerman, Michael St. John.... PLUS
Michael St. John at Marvelli - Think I especially liked the room of fourteen small Negroes with Guns paintings.... inspired by an important book with that title (they are book-size).
Plastic over stretchers and wooden Guston clock...
the next day in Brooklyn - at Sideshow - the guy showed me a small Lauren Luloff painting on something see-through... looked so good held up to the window, with the light coming through.
Philip Akkerman at BravinLee - Wish I'd spent more time here...
Ludwig Schwarz at Sunday
James Ensor at Peter Freeman
Paul Thek at somewhere around Chelsea
Giant Robot show somewhere...
Philip Pearlstein somewhere in Chelsea
regretfully went out of my way to see:
33 Bond Gallery - but i won't give up... it was "on my radar" for some reason. ugh, i hate that expression.
running into a really nice Pat Lipsky, who showed me her studio, and finding out that she once LIVED IN HOOSICK FALLS for a short time!!! FREAKY.
most strikingly similar critical sensibility:
Roberta Smith and I both compared Jim Turrel negatively to Roy Colmer... BUT I DID IT FIRST!! (if I was Tyler Green I would have made a special post announcing that, ha ha. TRUE.)
He has an interesting look at George Cope and Marsden Hartley today
more that should have been posted with the other yucks, snoozes, and so-whats:
