Michael Dumontier/Neil Farber @ Richard Heller (****) Fun, usually funny, like large work best like Animals w/ Sharpies & Symbolatry. #artLA
2:25 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Tim Ebner @ Rosamund Felsen (****) Playful like children’s painting; love feathers & beads. High, floating in space as if swimming. #artLA
2:34 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Allison Schulnik @MMooreGallery (**) Sorry but I’ve got to disagree w/ everyone. Overly wrought, muddy & just bad “Bad Painting.” #artLA
2:57 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Schulnik video: Grizzly Bear music haunting, but visually doesn’t get very far past the inherent wow factor of stop- motion animation. #artLA
3:01 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Thought on “Bad Painting”: Not every velvet painting is great just because it is a velvet painting.
3:04 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Mark Swope @ Craig Krull (****) Gritty, urban, industrial. Graf-covered cement, bridges, lines of rails/power lines crisscrossing the view. #artLA
3:18 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Udo Noger @ Ruth Bachofer (***) Scrim-covered surfaces makes for muffled forms. Cut-out areas become shadows. Calm & quiet like fog. #artLA
3:49 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Diana Thater @SMMoA (**) Film refilming film, Rashomon viewpoints, camera exposed. All old hat, nothing up the sleeve, no magic. #artLA
4:11 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

Loved the Kelly Reemtsen painting in the Poprealism show @ Skidmore Contemporary. Does for dresses what Thiebaud did for food. #artLA
4:37 PM Feb 6th via TweetDeck

I’m @MOCAlosangeles for the Laura Owens artist talk. #artLA
6:31 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens on painting in show: I was looking at the Pepsi logo & Japanese prints. #MOCA
6:48 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: How did I paint that? I can’t remember. #MOCA
6:50 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: Painting has a mate with moon pictured. It’s in Europe somewhere. #MOCA
6:52 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: Talk already over. Now asking for questions. #MOCA
6:54 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: Likes to start over fresh in each painting. Likes to make things that are uncomfortable. #MOCA
6:55 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: Works large scale frequently because of its literalness. #MOCA
6:58 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: Monkey painting derived from Chinese painting, anxiety of originality & pressure to get work done for a show. #MOCA
7:11 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: Tends to ignore the reviews of her shows. Prefers the feedback during studio visits. #MOCA
7:16 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: In 1999 I got dumped and made a lot of paintings that year. Now I’m happy and make less work. #MOCA
7:20 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

Owens: I’ve gotten totally into fonts lately. #MOCA
7:23 PM Feb 11th via TweetDeck

I said “I heart art” and got in to see the #TaraDonovan exhibition @mcasd for half-price.
2:15 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck

“Haze” is one of the most amazing installations I’ve seen. Millions of stacked straws look like clouds, tulle, feathers. #TaraDonovan
2:24 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck

I’ve seen toothpick cubes before, but the pin and glass cubes are even more spectacular. #TaraDonovan
2:30 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck

“Bluffs,” made from stacks of clear buttons, reminds me of the drip sandcastles we used to make as kids. #TaraDonovan
2:36 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck

The silver “Untitled (Mylar)” hemispheres oddly read as black velvet puffs sprinkled with dew. #TaraDonovan #afd 3
2:42 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck

In “Untitled (Mylar Tape)” it looks like each circle contains a lens, but it’s just the reflection off of the inside of the tape. #TaraDonovan
2:48 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck

Tara Donovan @mcasd (*****) Simple yet complex. Calming & Zen-like but wonder & awe-inspiring too. #TaraDonovan
3:06 PM Feb 14th via TweetDeck
