Summer Group Show @ Cottage Home (***) Bart Exposito paintings & Pae White tapestry are the standouts. #artLA
4:47 PM Aug 1st from txt

Simone Forti @ The Box (*) Boring performance documentation. Walked in. Walked right out. #artLA
5:00 PM Aug 1st from txt

Monique van Genderen @ Happy Lion (**) Good 2 see Monique experimenting w/ something new, but needs more time in the studio. Only 1 I like.
5:10 PM Aug 1st from txt

Mark Roeder @ sister (***) Black line paintings on white gessoed canvas or paper. I like the idea of correction. #artLA
5:15 PM Aug 1st from txt

POVevolving Anniversary Show (**) Again–only one painting I like: Amy Casey’s “Residential Web.”
5:24 PM Aug 1st from txt

Will Fowler @ China Art Objects (***) I like these paintings. Layered, hard-edge yet messy, fun, bright with white. #artLA
5:31 PM Aug 1st from txt

Diem Chau @ fifth floor (****) Embroidered silk organza over china cups or saucers. Very delicate and poignant. #artLA
5:40 PM Aug 1st from txt

Conscious Pleasure @ Sabina Lee (**) I usually like Sabina’s shows, but not this one. Sloppy & derivative. #artLA
5:50 PM Aug 1st from txt

Pompeii @LACMA (****) Unlike blockbuster predecessor, focuses on wealthy, their art & seaside villas celebrating the Golden Age of Greece.
2:33 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Pompeii: I really liked a gorgeous small glass bowl made of fused ribbon glass in stripes of blue, green and gold. http://tr.im/wDVy
2:41 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Pompeii: There was also this amazingly detailed floor mosaic depicting Plato’s Academy. http://tr.im/wDXB
2:47 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Pompeii: I didn’t really get into the frescoes but did like the Floating Maenad with transparent billowing drapery. http://bit.ly/u7YTH
3:07 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Pompeii: I was oddly attracted to the portrait-herm of Menander. It was my favorite piece in the show. http://bit.ly/nzadb
3:20 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Menander: Despite corrosion on the right side of the face and the tip of his nose missing, deep-set eyes, square chin & full lips got to me.

Your Bright Future: 12 Contemporary Artists from Korea @LACMA (***) Not recent enough to feel timely; not remote enough to be historical.
6:23 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

I agree with both @KnightLAT & Chris Miles–Do Ho Suh’s Fallen Star 1/5 is the piece to see. http://tr.im/wEyV
6:24 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Fallen Star 1/5 is an exquisite clash between Wizard of Oz & Twilight Zone with Roland Reiss & Gordon Matta-Clark.
6:34 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Fallen Star 1/5: I was particularly wowed by the extremely detailed and structured stitching on the deflated balloon.
6:35 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

I also liked the icy coolness of the honeycomb resin used in Do Ho Suh’s eerie Home within Home. http://tr.im/wEAn
6:35 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Bright Future: As for the rest, I just don’t have the patience for standing around reading a lot of text or watching TV in a museum.
6:35 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

Bright Future: I’ve also grown weary of the Home Depot aesthetic. Please, no more sheetrock, metal shelving, cardboard boxes or crates.
6:36 PM Aug 18th from TweetDeck

From the Spoon to the City @LACMA (****) Small but worthy. Into the chaise lounges by Gehry & Breuer & Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Line textile.
11:25 AM Aug 20th from TweetDeck

Patrick Wilson @ Susanne Vielmetter (****) Didn’t like the works on paper. Subtle harmonies of paintings like “Green Gray Yellow” work best. #artLA
2:19 PM Aug 21st from txt

Chris Vasell @ Blum & Poe (**) Why did everyone like these paintings? Yuck. #artLA
2:32 PM Aug 21st from txt

Laugh It Off @ Walter Maciel (****) Fun and funny, particularly the jabs at the Art World. #artLA
2:52 PM Aug 21st from txt

Wet Paint @ Steve Turner (***) Not bad for youngsters. Love all of Ana Rodriguez’s patterns & blobs.
8:37 PM Aug 22nd from txt

Wet Paint: Also drawn to Michael Rey’s “Limited (IME)” monochrome. I’m a sucker for chartreuse. #artLA
8:40 PM Aug 22nd from txt

Drawings & Objects by Architects @ Edward Cella (***) A bit too crowed on the walls, but represents some great architects.
8:58 PM Aug 22nd from txt

Edward Cella: Be sure to see Frank Gehry’s Wiggle chair, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Cottage Studio for Ayn Rand & Minoru Yamasaki’s Century Plaza Hotel.
8:59 PM Aug 22nd from txt

Deforestation Squad @machineproject (****) Love to see all this recycling going on. Side and coffee tables & a grass couch–cool. #artLA
9:57 PM Aug 22nd from txt
