IRWIN, IRWIN Live, 1996/1998 exhibitions in Atlanta and Warsaw
IRWIN Live consists of paintings from the “Was ist Kunst” series installed on the ceiling with the Irwin members suspended below them so as to appear standing as spectators in front of their paintings.
After the opening the “live” members are replaced with replicas, wich remain in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition. (via)
a tribute to the zenith of what was once the rockinest place on earth.
SHOUT OUT TO MY FRIENDS AT AMERICA IS DEAD!
Another favorite of mine an artist from Santa Fe, NM, Erin Currier, does these large format, multi-media images. She uses layers of material, paint and other material “waste” to create her images. Much more dramatic in person.
“Don’t get a tattoo”, they said. “It will look like crap when you’re older”, they said.
This is amazing, whoever did this showed the true side to tattoos, people who do not regret them, people who are proud and did not bail out! This is amazing!
I believe that in the indeterminacy of drawing, the contingent way that images arrive in the work, lies some kind of model of how we live our lives. The activity of drawing is a way of trying to understand who we are or how we operate in the world.
