stunningly bad and boring.wow.
no way. very wonderful pieces.
micky thomas called - she wants her intellectual property back.
who is micky thomas?
this stuff is bad enough to be in the "new acquisitions" bin at Klein Mart.
Okay.Tony,.....so what is the relationship as you see it between what Rizzo is doing with her beaded portraits and Mickalene Thomas' paintings?I dont understand why Thomas should want her "intelectual property' back, as you define it.
russo!!!Her name isn't rizzo!
who knew beads could be so painterly? :)
wait- who knew beads could LOOK so painterly? yeah that sounds righter. heh ;)
These make me think of what would happen if my grandmother got into my studio and submerged my painting in a box of go- go glitter.These are so be-dazzlers, as seen on tv. Some one spent way to much time at Micheal's arts and crafts. See what happens when the suburban art student returns home from art school. They find the beads!!!!!!!
wow, what catty comments. criticism is great, but generic mean comments aren't very helpful.
Anonymous, Your snide comment about the "suburban art student" is pissy. Look up the work of Liza Lou. She had a difficult time in art school because her painting teachers couldnt get their minds around a student using beads.....they called it kitschy and dismissed her.Liza left school and stayed with the beads. One of her signature series of works were beaded portraits of every president of the United States; this series was shown at CCS when the Gallery was in the lobby of the Park Shelton To make a long story short, she perservered mightily, because she found an audience that respected the fierceness of her statements, regardless of the media.She has received every award in the book. Her beaded works and installations are awesome, and sell for much.
I love this work! Its fresh!
Ann---could you fix the artist's name....Its Kate RUSSOThanks for posting the images,especially the close-ups; I couldnt get to the show.
i think the impact of lisa lou's work comes from the amount of obsessive time consuming labor that goes into the making of her many elaborate installations - they are so over the top that one cannot take notice. perhaps if russo's work took on a larger scale they would have far more punch and not remain as craft fetishes.
Liza Lou did small,intimately scaled works at the beginning of her career, which is where Kate Russo is now...this young artist is very talented and just finished school. I have no doubt that when she has the same tools at her disposal that Liza Lou has----large teams of workers to build installations, money from grants and sales to pay them----that the vision and the scale for her works will grow exponentially.
somebody oughta start up a group called Haters Anonymous. i'd do it, but i'm too busy paintin.
whatever happened to this artist? never heard of any shows after this one
