Eric Sall's LMCC studio, with Meridith Pingree.
Went to the LMCC open studios last week... I'm posting Eric's stuff because he has a show opening at ATM tonight, but I'll post some of the other artists by next week.
I remember last year talking to Eric about how we had both applied to this LMCC thing... it would be so good to have a big bright studio space again.
UPDATE - installation shots from the ATM show
Click the picture to see it bigger. Love purple and green together... Joker colors. The purple drips in the black and green are tight. I don't mean tight like slang talk... can't think of a better word. Same tightness feeling I get with Jakub Julian Ziolkowski (scroll down)... tension tight, oppressive. I try to get that...
Ron Johnson gets it. I want to be in a show with Eric and Ron.. I think it would look good together, and there are some interesting differences and overlap, a mutual creepiness.
Wow... it's the same one I liked two years ago, but he's completely re-worked it.
It's funny, because in the post featuring the previous incarnation of this painting I wrote "I've enjoyed my few visits to his studio, seeing how he struggles with his paintings. The same painting might still be in process months later, almost unrecognizable. I'm not sure if all that is fun for him, but I like knowing about the process"... and now he's exhibited it and re-worked it even more.

Painting with child. This painting needed a baby, so I put Isaac's photo of his daughter on it.... CUTE!
