Took my boy Frank @frankieleemusic to the Clyfford Still Museum today, and he loved it, like I knew he would. Still has been one of my heroes since I was 18. He was the darling of the dawn of what became labeled as “Abstract Expressionism,” a classification he detested. He was the one who broke through that wall first. He had one of the most mind-blowing debuts that Betty Parsons ever put on. Many household kids followed, aping his approach and boldness. Kids like Jackson Pollock, Rothko, Motherwell, et al. But the difference was Still painted for his life, while the others painted for the scene. When Parsons tried to put on a second show for Still, he declined. He left New York and bought a farmhouse in rural Maryland. There, he painted in a barn every day for the next 40 years. The art world just thought he quit. When he died in 1980, his barn was filled with almost 1000 paintings, many were 10’x12’ or larger. Huge. And over 1500 works on paper. I just love people who can leave the scene and do the work for the work: Clyfford Still; Agnes Martin; Laura Riding; or Moe Tucker having to work in a Georgia Wal-Mart for 20 years after the Velvet Underground broke up (and still managed to put out some of the greatest 45’s of the 70’s). These people light me up. So, this is Frank (an undeniably and wholly unique artist himself) standing in front of a Still painting from 1936, and then standing in front of Still’s last painting from 1979. Nothing beats sharing what’s shaped you with someone you know will be shaped by it too, though in their own way. Irreverence. It’s my mantra. Don’t get lost in the scene. Either lead it or leave it. Whatever keeps you moving forward with no rear view or side mirrors. It was good seeing real art, with a real artist, who’s a real friend. Chalk today up as a great one - breakfast to bedtime. I don’t get many of those. I’ll take it and put it in my pocket. Goodnight. #art#clyffordstill#artist#frankielee#artwork#denver#painting#abstractexpressionism#agnesmartin#laurariding#moetucker#velvetunderground#friendship#music#walkingaway#leavingthescene#realart#noposturing#artistsoninstagram#therealdeal#todaywasagoodday
After celebrating family birthdays today in San Jose, I had a lovely stop at #PACEPaloAlto for #AgnesMartin / Navajo Blankets. Always sublime seeing her work 😍💕 Catch the exhibit until October 28th before it moves on to NYC in November!
we percieve-we see
we see with our eyes and
we see with our minds
percieving is the same as receiving
and it is the same as responding
perceving means all of them
it goes on all the time
whether we are wake or asleep
when we wake in the morning
we can recall that which we percieved when we were asleep
Honored to be an International Artist in Residence at Konstepidemin. ^
‘Born and raised in Oklahoma, Carrie Bobo spent the last 14 years living and working in New York City with her painting and printmaking studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Carrie will continue to develop her practice at Konstepidemin in Göteborg, Sweden from October 4th 2018 through January 31st 2019.’ ^
While at Konstepidemin I will focus my work through a project exploring cultural conceptions of home.
Homes are more than simple structures; they generate identity as well as a sense of continuity and stability. We begin to understand our position in society in relation to the appearance and location of our childhood homes.
My own cultural references are grounded in suburban America, a place where success is often tied to the ownership of a ranch home with driveway, lawn, and mailbox; a typology whose enclosed automatically opening garage doors and privacy fences foster isolation from community.
I’m interested in comparing my own notions of home with vernacular Swedish models. Sweden’s Falu Rödfärg board and batten houses with their steeply peaked roofs connote history and warmth. Traditional courtyard buildings act as assimilators fostering community relationships. The relatively newly built Miljonprogrammet suburbs with their modular construction, appear to congregate populations already viewed as outsiders.
I’m particularly interested in how these different types of housing can be perceived as inclusive or exclusionary.
I look forward to engaging with the international community of visitors and artist at Konstepidemin. ^
After a week of sorting and looking at 185 different artworks (and the info that goes along with them) for #RDAuction at @rootdivision , I spent 30 minutes meditating in front of this quiet beauty last night in the octagon at @sfmoma .
Happy Friday ✨ I’ll be right here all day. ◼️◻️Finishing up another 40”x40” piece of art for a client’s shop. You all know I love modern design + architecture...the influences run deep. I’m sure you are all sick of me mentioning Eileen Grey, Frey, Wexler, etc. The name“Little Korboose” is even a play off of “Corbusier”. However, when it comes to fine art, which I was raised on (my grandfather+mother were both artists), my influences are ALL over the board. From Agnes Martin to Hockney to Basquiat, to Kusama... I suppose if I can see ANY emotion behind the painting or notice repetition of form, I am drawn to it. That said, painting has always been a form of meditation for me...a way to calm the mind... and having been introduced at a very young age, I don’t know life without either 🖤
A little Agnes Martin - untitled - 1999 , just a few years before she died. Bless , of course a lot of people would think : but why was this painting on sale at Frieze Masters for a considerable amount of money where I could just go home after work and do it myself for about £20 ? and perhaps even have it finished and hung on my wall by bedtime ? ... the answer is simple. Somehow most of us just don’t do it. And even if we did, our intentions and energy would be somewhat rushed and superficial. Agnes took it upon herself , for her own personal needs and possibly very deep and spiritual reasons, to spend her life painting lines and creating these inward-looking , noiseless, and peaceful paintings. We just need to be grateful to her work and enjoy it when we get to see one or more in person. And if I could afford it, I’m convinced I wouldn’t think twice about purchasing one. Just like when we get to wake up to a gorgeous blue sky this little painting would surely enrich my life a little bit more on a daily basis. And yes she’s clearly one of my all time favourite artists 😌⭐️😌 #agnesmartin#untitled#minimalism#minimalist#painting#noiseless#littlepainting#calm#peaceful#yellow#joyful#zen#abstract#anstractpainting#abstraction#art#artist#canadian#friezelondon#frieze#friezemasters#london#grateful

Diné artist & IAIA Alum Craig George is one of those artists whose work, in our humble opinion, people will regret not collecting earlier. He grew up in Los Angeles and a few years ago began to re-establish roots on the Navajo Reservation, not far from Blue Gap, Arizona. He works exclusively in oil. In addition to amazing landscapes and the occasional abstract or collage, he paints scenes based on what he saw and experienced growing up in Los Angles - home to the largest off-reservation Indian population in the country. The tags, the wall signs, the graffiti -all of it- is based upon actual places and scenes in LA.

Agnes Martin/ 존경하는 작가, 아그네스마틴. 개인적으로 그녀의 그림을 보고 있으면 무언의 위로와 평온함이 느껴지곤합니다.
생전 그녀의 모습은 자신의 생각과 마음을 담담하게 붓과 연필로 남긴 절제된 선/여백과 닮아있는듯 해요.
언제 어디서든 끊임없는 노력과 움직임으로 일궈내는 과정 - 이번 컬렉션에는 여자를 위한 작업복에 대한 생각을 바탕으로 덧입어도 좋은 편안함과 고요한 컬러감 그리고 선과 여백을 담아보려합니다. #inspiration#agnesmartin#workwear#kyynthegarten
