My early work in manipulating photography was so similar to Hockney’s collages that when I finally saw his Pearblossom Highway, I was dumbstruck (arrogant, enough, however, to point out to my wife the glue splotches I found in his work, something I was so careful not to leave in my own huge work MONTEGO BAY).
Love the early Impressionists. Love the artists from the 30’s, 40’s and on who changed the view of art as we know it with found objects, et al. Love the constructions of Ed Keinholtz, Joseph Cornell, Raushenberg, et al. Of course, I love Picasso and Dali and Frida Kahlo.
Three Pieces by Joseph Cornell. One of my favorite artists working in assemblage.
ON ED KIENHOLZ
Great catalogue. Great show. Was taken through the exhibition by his wife and collaborator, Nancy Kienholz.
How does one not love Carravagio’s use of light?
Anselm Kiefer – Wondrous dark and provocative work
Bob Rauschenberg – More on one of my favorite assemblage artists
