Post Modernist Post-Mortem

Source: Wikipedia.

Prospect Magazine has published the post-mortem on Postmodernism. Author Edward Docx reports on the Victoria & Albert Museum's upcoming exhibition,  Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970–1990.

"Gradually we hear more and more affirmation for those who can render expertly, the sculptor who can sculpt, the ceramist, the jeweller (sic), even the novelist who can actually write." Edward Docx.

Read the article at Prospect to understand the ineffable movement just a little bit more.  And, start wondering what to do next.

School Days Are Approaching

 August In Spokane.

...and I will be back in the studio full time.  Summer is a slow time online, isn't it?  Thanks for tuning in here at The Colorist for your "art fix."  I have been working on some computer projects, plus I did complete a large work at 25" x 39.5," which is photographed and waiting to be posted later in the week.  The computer projects are a secret, but you may know about them soon enough.

This weekend I sat in my booth at the Arbor Crest fair high above the Spokane Valley.  It is a beautiful venue, and I had a nice time.  Next: Sausalito.

I think Modigliani's work improved dramatically each year of his short career.  This is one of his portraits of Jeanne Hébuterne, and it gives the lie to photography.  She is pretty in the photos, but lovely through Modigliani's eyes.

Still think Modern Art is bad?
