Nature’s Timeline

The Getty Center in Los Angeles  is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Here are two shots of the same scene looking out over the gardens at different times of the year.

Shitty Art

You know, I don’t like to see shit in art. Really, I don’t. However, at the Gilbert & George show at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, I got past shocking imagery (including nudity, depictions of sexual acts, and various bodily fluids) and savored the rainbow avalanche of saturated glorious technicolor on the wall enveloping photo montages. The show concluded with a small room filled with ephemera created by the pair including various “postcard sculptures”. The G&G show ends May 18th. See my own take on the postcard sculpture on the next post.

Dream, 1984
