Michael Nevin of The Journal insisted that I see this art show in Kassel while in
Germany. I had no idea what to expect. The show took over the city, taking over 8
locations for over 100 days. Here are some of the pieces I liked..
Carl Freidrich Echtermeier, Carrara-Marmor, 1882
This one was not part of the exhibit, but I liked it anyway.. I thought the figures looked
nice in the hall- like a pallet cleanser. I also liked the vents that were placed
throughout the hall (shown below).
Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, Untitled, 2009
I look a photograph of this painting and it reminds me of a tapestry. There were many
many tapestries- they were the most dominating trend of the show...
Ida Applebroog, I SEE BY YOUR FINGERNAILS THAT YOU ARE MY BROTHER:
Yan Lei, Limited Art Project, 2012
These reminded me of old black and white photographs that were later colored in.
Photos in this technique also happen to be the basis of my color palette for Spring 13...
The room was covered with these paintings from the ceilings down the wall.
I love Smurfs.
Aren wiped out...we only made it to 3 of 8 of the exhibits.
