Today I am in New York City. I am looking for better ways and means to connect. I want a larger dialogue, more personal and direct. This Blog gets plenty of attention, but I have often complained within its posts that here are reproductions, not the real things. Words are similar. Words cannot adequately express the purely visual.
During the last couple of days I have viewed a lot of art, from Carol Bove's sculpture at David Zwimmer's gallery in Chelsea, to art in the Whitney Museum and MOMA. There is nothing like the real thing. As example, reproductions of Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night" never made sense to me. At times, while viewing a reproduction, I thought, "What's the big deal?" But in person, its depth, its personality, is incredibly rich and profound. Such is my art. Reproductions here pale compared to the actual work. Thus I am in New York City, looking to find a way for people to see, and to react, to my art in person.
