    In what respect? Kind of a very open question, no?

    have only seen part 1 and 2 of Cremaster 3, haven't had time to see the other ones. in the movies he has a visual language that I really appreciate. but I can't say that I'm totally down in the whole mason-thing and knows what everything is about.

    but I've also seen a documentary where he shows the props from the movies in guggenheim, and most of the things you see are very well done sculptures, and is of course amazing!

    I saw Drawing Restraint 9 at the IFC center. Beautiful, but damn I wished I had done one or more letters of the alphabet before entering the theater!

    I, until recently was not a fan of post 1950 art, until I discovered some pieces by Yves Klein, and his signature blue:

    After The Bath, Woman Drying Herself(C.1888/92) Edgar Degas


    It is meat with bone: articulated, dynamic, forceful. My admiration for Degas' After The Bath is in what you notice is not only the voluptuouness and ease of the female flesh (the de-ossified, passive flesh of Degas' teacher, Ingres) but also the spinal column. You will find at the very top of the spine that the spine almost comes out of the skin altogether. And this gives such a grip and twist that you're more conscious of the vulnerability of the rest of the body than if he had drawn the spine naturally up to the neck. He breaks it so that this thing seems to potrude from the flesh. In Degas, muscles(Dancers, Bathers, Horses and bourgeois Sitters) perhaps for the first time in the nineteenth century, have "origin and insertions;" Degas has almost a chiropractor's sense of how bones rotate in the sockets of the joint, how they become heavy or tense, how the body's centres of gravity are multiple and not just one, and how these centres form a dynamic constellation of points as they move through space ...

    /\ that you gotta see in person. so much visceral impact is in texture and the size, it really doesn't amount to much on pictures.

    I also forgot that one of my favorite photographers is Joel Peter Witkin.

    He's so fucked up but my god... he does the ugly/beautiful thing hands down perfect. I'd love to one day own an original... or several.
