I really want to write about the text in this piece, because there are lots of funny details, but I have to pack. I'm going to Rome! I love Rome. A curator I know said that there was a long tradition of artists going to Rome and having their heads explode- it's true. The city is full of exuberant Baroque art, and the standard for exuberance is radically different in an old quaker city and an ancient catholic one. Being surrounded by Berminis, Borrominis, Michaelangelo, and Caravaggio- and all their thousands of imitators, all of whom were also amazing- changed my art forever. To say I'm looking forward to it is a massive understatement.
So this blog update is necessarily tiny- but there is lots of new work on the website, and in four months there will be work from Rome..
