motor city and I

Looks like it is my turn at Motor City this week (aug 9). I never wanted the blog to focus on me or my art - but instead the detroit art scene but I figure I would be stupid to not to post my shows. I go to Motor City art night every week so I guess this week I will see my art. I only wonder if I will be kind to myself? I hope to see everyone there!

looking forward to your show ann! I'm really going to try to make it. Looks like a show worth seeing. Good to see you getting back into the show circuit lately.

to hell with it. Promote yourself. God helps those who help themselves. Blowing someone elses horn never sounds as good as your own.

Overall good show. I'm in love with the small oil painting, but I just love oils to begin with. I've always been a fan of Ann's work and it continues to interest me, though that could be because we share a lot of the same concerns in art. I was less thrilled with the fabric that had the "things" pushing forward from behind. I don't know how to describe them accurately. When I visited Yale studios there was an artist who was doing something extremely similar which these remind me of. Though he did them more clean and pristine and Ann's I felt were more haphazardly executed. They just didn't resonate with me like the paintings and drawings did. The video I'm kind of neutral on, but that's the way most video work tends to strike me. Overall, it was worth the drive.

the art was photographed well. straight on. i was hoping to see people and crowd so we could get a feel for your show.

you and that artist J.A. - who seems to bottom feed his identity here should do a show together. callit, "two people who show up"/ maybe you could take the spoons from your mouths and play them for the investors from your neighborhood.

it would sound something like this----bingo, jingo, dingo - click, click - smuckers and my esteem - click, click - mixed well with my self involved buddy who will now rub 600 dollars worth of paint on dried poo poo.


And if that wasn't enough, you could say------
we don't worry about nothin - we promise/

I don't know about you Ann, but I think that would be a pretty rad song. We should do it. Call it performance art. I'll bring the spoons.

jules abracadabra... jeremiah abyssinian... justine avalanche...

But I'm with you, J.Azoni, I think that that would be a pretty rad song. If you and ann do it (whoever brings the spoons) I'll pay a $2 cover fee to watch and bring 6 friends @ $2 apeice, which should cover the costs to rent a good computer hacker to pinpoint the IPOs of all these anonymouses...

Yeah I was reading on myspace about the band Detroit Coupe whom has a major following on-line. There site and email has been virtually taken over by hackers and they have no control. They were getting 11,000 hits a day and equal downloads. Up in the top three rated on myspace poles for best funk on myspace! But now they have no access to their network.

But what you seem to be talking about pretty pretty is just a control issue. Did'nt any of you go to art school?

It's a shame what happens to anything that becomes popular. All of the sudden you have to please even old bitty in the office.

This blog has taken many interesting perspectives in the past including the infamous Blank Canvas whose commentary on shows
was like reading tabloid criticism.

Actually, anon, what I was talking about was less control and more a distate for the use of the "anonymous" button.

if i was going to attack someone personally (like the original anon did) I would at least state my name... or a bare minimum a pseudonym... but to hide behind anonymity in order to attack someone is extreamly gutless. It's actually quite easy to hack IPOs and see who's who on here. :-)
