I don’t know if anyone else has seen the YouTube animation that explains the ten dimensions of the physical world, as predicted by the theoretical framework of M- or String theory. It’s quite confusing. However, one of the ideas it introduces is that at certain points the shift from one dimension to the next is achieved by folding that dimension through into the next (in similar fashion to how one would fold a piece of paper into a Mobius strip). This is the process that allows a bei... [more]

This is a funny show, really. Over there, scattered along the main wall, a conversation between analyst and analysand traces a kind of erratic through-line around an idiosyncratically hung collection of diverse works, ranging from an Yves Tanguy knock-off and a Frank Stella lithograph to more recent pieces (Wade Guyton, Carol Bove, and Louise Lawler to name a few) with little regard for chronology. At times, the patient's breakthrough seems to be on the tip of his tongue, as he dredges through m... [more]

Mapplethorpe for me, had always been someone whose work I respected by virtue of the quality of his prints, but always someone I felt indifferent to. It is much the same for certain countries that I have never had a desire to visit. It's not that they aren't interesting; just more that the sheer number of travel guides have pretty much had the place well-covered. Mapplethorpe is someone of whom there are many comprehensive travel guides but no reason for me to visit. At Allison... [more]

Mobydick The Salty Atmosphere of Moby Dick   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 10/12/09

With Moby-Dick, the Wattis presents the second of three shows rousting the spirits of great American literature. Although painted like a Nautica bedroom set with navy walls and white text, each room conjures the salty atmosphere of a heaving ship with alternately droning and ranting snippets from Orson Welles's recitation of Moby Dick. These elements (whale, walls, and Welles) attempt to interlace work from thirty-three international artists—no small feat. Of course, I don't envy the cu... [more]

    Abstract America: New Paintings and Sculpture is not for me, but I have to admit that the Saatchi Gallery’s done a phenomenal job gathering up artwork by the biggest and brightest in contemporary American abstract artists.  As this was my first visit to Saatchi’s swanky digs in Chelsea, I must also mention that the gallery is phenomenal – perhaps even the best venue for viewing art that I’ve ever come across.  Many of the works in the exhibition seemed too clever for my taste, but the few...
