Geoff Tuck is a Los Angeles based artist, best known as founder of Notes on Looking - Writings on Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. His writing, poetry, photos, videos and drawings, revolve around the act of observing.

His work merges strategies of the Situationist’s drifter, witnessing art’s fleeting moments like a flanuer. His encounters with art and artists bring together a disparate community in a city that is as vast as Los Angles. Geoff’s material as an artist is the art world itself and his work presents a peculiar incarnation of the term of the soziale Plastik. As he states: “For the past two years I have gotten to know a lot of people and written about them, now I want to connect them.”

My Words

they cut and lead me nowhere

they mock me in my dreams

Each sentence causes shame

and every phrase brings me pain

Queasy - my gut wrenches

Tight - my butt clenches

Why do I show this stuff? Where can I hide?

Ego and desire, they drive me

Neurosis is my master

Attention my fuel


And then I find something crazy, and am saved from my navel-gazin worrries

Briefly perhaps

But for long enough to get the work done
