Went to Chelsea to check out whats hot in the Art world,
here is your virtual tour with me
For those of you who haven’t been there are pretty much three blocks all filled with galleries
I like religous themes
Another artist/photographer using themselves as there subject
Never underestimate the power of flesh
These were almost too real, I really like the effect of water dropplets
with so much art, everyone is trying to break out of the box
This guy was an amazing painter, but choose to leave his paintings, with this empty unfinshed look
You can’t tell but this is like 10 ft by 10ft
Some really cool glazes
I like how the different layers of this painting were stitched together
This is my favorite picture I took, the context in which this art was viewed is what gave it most of its value
The title of this exhbit made me think for a bit what it meant….what does it mean to you?
CHRIST: THE SUBJECTIVE NATURE OF OBJECTIVE REPRESENTATION
This is what I want to do, create some Video Installations
There isn’t any money in it, but as long as you get get some organisations to fund your work it seems rather rewarding.
having multiple images at once, allows more room for the viewer interpretation.
Some favorites from the street
This is one of my favorites
I could go on forever but I just wanted to share a taste with you
Some random thoughts about NY
I was taught that Black was the Absence of color, but it seems like the opposite these days. Walking around the streets of NY, black seems to be the common denominator between all these different people.
NY is full of rich culture, as it seems many are first or second generation Americans, and stuck close within their cultural community for support. One of the most visual examples are the Hassidic Jews. We took a drive around Williamsburg to observe this tight knit community. There dress quickly sets them apart, they start very young, as i saw 4-5 year olds walking around with the hair style, and black suits on. After talking with my friend I learned more about the culture; they donâ€™t watch TV or movies, donâ€™t hold hands on the street, and wonâ€™t work after sundown of Friday, and eat family dinners together. Iâ€™m fascinated by this sub-culture and have been racking my brain on how I might get access to tell these people story. One night on my way back from the city, I picked a paper whoâ€™s headline was discussing one Hassidic Jewâ€™s decision to back out of a movie that he was staring in with Natalie Portman, due to pressure from the rabbiâ€™s. The Hasidic pride themselves on the religious devotion, and is root for their culture.
I also got to explore the Columbian Community with some of my friends, and we even ventured into the Indian Community for a night to watch a Bolly-wood film, Jodaa Akbar.
I still dream about making a Film about gypsies, as I find I know very little about what truly goes on in these subcultures, and would like to find an interesting story tell, with my own style.
