Last Plastics Show @ Cardwell Jimmerson (*****) Loved all the cast acrylic/resin: Vasa, Chicago, Valentine, Alexander, Reiss & Eversley.

Rodney McMillian: Succulents @ Vielmetter (***) Not seeing link between “cultural meaning” & “aesthetic form.” But plants=cool clean air#artLA

Vielmetter’s new space (****) Loving bow-truss ceiling and ancient roll-up doors, but back 2 spaces too closed in & doors too narrow.#artLA

Lee Ufan @ Blum & Poe (****) Grainy blue or gray pigment and fading brushstrokes give them a weird photographic feel. #artLA #afd 8

Tom LaDuke @ Angles (***) Too much quotation & not enough distance from Richter in the paintings. Sculptures way cool though. #artLA

Freddy Chandra: Verge @ Walter Maciel (*****) Translucent & blurry like film strip sliding out of a projector Asymmetricals work best #artLA

I’m @hammer_museum for the Rachel Whiteread exhibition walkthrough. #whiteread
1:57 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Rachel is ill and won’t be here. Allegra will do the walkthrough alone. #whiteread
2:06 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Makes the invisible visible. #whiteread
2:07 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Rachel regards her drawings as a diary of her work. This is the first show of her drawings. #whiteread
2:09 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Very subtle, intimate work. Should get up close. Floor work done at Berlin residency. Apartment had herringbone floor. #whiteread
2:16 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Likes graph paper and correction fluid. Not technical or preparatory drawings. Parallel works. #whiteread
2:24 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Dissects every part of the room as if she were a surgeon. Drawings have lightness; plays w/ proportion. Opposite of sculptures. #whiteread
2:31 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Baths and plinths most solemn room in the show. Isolation, loss, passage of life. #whiteread
2:40 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Always disappointed she couldn’t cast the stairs in Ghost. Eventually figured it out. Contemplated casting architecture early on. #whiteread
2:44 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Hive is cast of beehive. Palladian shaped and cast in honey-colored resin. Deeply interested in texture. #whiteread
2:48 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

5 yrs of meetings for Holocaust Memorial was a very fertile time for her drawings. White bookshelves and page ends of books. #whiteread #afd
2:55 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Like her drawings, items in vitrine all related to personal memories. Collections, reminders, mementos, passing of time. #whiteread
3:03 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Packing her mother’s belongings after she passed away led to a series of boxes. Feeding the personal into the work. #whiteread
3:09 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Mattresses also extend idea of memory & loss. Frequently abandoned in the street, loaded w/ the lives of people who slept on them. #whiteread
3:36 PM Jan 31st via TweetDeck

Really cool circular graph paper used to plot the heat core test for the transparent resin cast of Trafalgar Square Plinth. #whiteread
6:06 PM Jan 31st via web
