Wizards and Demons


This Roger Dean card comes from my “neighbor” Reggie, via Walltype:

As she points out, though, we were not neighbors when she sent this card, because I was still in Pennsylvania during my winter break. I think that it is funny that we are neighbors, since we have never actually met in real life.

The card shows a Roger Dean work entitled Wizards and Demons.

Maurizio Cattelan – All

On Life - by von Kalweit

Last weekend, I was invited to the Guggenheim museum by a dear friend to catch the final showing of Maurizio Cattelan’s All. Cattelan is an Italian artist, most commonly known for his sculptures and installations, which are heavy on the satire.

And he’s good, no doubt about it. But it wasn’t so much his art, as it was the way his works were displayed — all were strung-up in a haphazardly manner from the Frank Llyod Wright-designed rotunda — that really made me appreciate the exhibition. I could go off on how this challenged the conventional exhibition, or how it disoriented the viewer and engaged him or her from all sides. But really, it just made sense. It gave the viewer the opportunity to view his collection as a whole, rather than piece-by-piece. (Here’s a great video of how it was put together.)

Nicely done, Guggenheim.

When lights called the world to Paris,
they found their ideas in cafés;
their sight defined Her as heiress
through canvas, brush, paints and wordplay.

They found their ideas in cafés
in Her energy and freedom.
Through canvas, brush, paints and wordplay
inspiring artistic outcome.

In Her energy and freedom
musicians and artists said they
created inventive outcome
whether written, sculpted or played.

Musicians and artists said they
must make the unseen become known,
whether written, sculpted or played
by weaving their souls in art’s bones.

Must make the unseen become known,
must live and die imbued by art.
By weaving their souls in art’s bones,
they transformed the cows of Montmartre.

Picasso to Chagall, Apollinaire to Hemingway they put the cow and…
