    On George Bush…

    1. Mr. Bush has not painted the people closest to him, who were instrumental in bringing him to power and shaping his presidency, namely Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld. Instead, he has painted a world of smiles and friendship that can rarely be taken as the whole story. The show reflects an attempt both to burnish the Bush presidency and distract us from its failures, as his brother Jeb, a former governor of Florida, may be readying his own campaign for the presidency. - Roberta Smith 4/7/14
    2. …the portrait is cut off right above the buttocks, which emphasizes this recurring theme of the desire to expose but under a certain amount of control.

      While not the most technically proficient portraits, they seem to truly convey a man who yearns for peace and tranquility but is unable to achieve those feelings, even in such simple and tranquil of settings.

      Or I may just be projecting. - Alexis Hyde 2/8/13

    3. It’s interesting to think, if they are earlier works, how he gained the confidence from these portraits to turn the canvas on himself. Did he start with the animals and still-lifes to keep from judgment from a thinking subject? Did he go on to do the self-portraits because no one could be harder on him than himself?

      Yet again we are left with more questions than answers. -Alexis Hyde 3/22/13

    I think I know where Piano-Pali got the idea for the new Academy of Motion Pictures Museum. (Via.cmonstah)

    Tech Tuesday: Designed and produced by Drexel University, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Physics at the Art Museum is a new iPad app that uses artworks to explain physics concepts. To demonstrate the concept of torque - the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis - the app shows Ghost (1964), a hanging mobile by Alexander Calder. A great educational tool that showcases the scientific skill of the artist, Physics at the Art Museum is presented by Subaru and free to download on any iPad. 

    Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention, the inaugural exhibition at Pace Menlo Park’s pop-up gallery space, is on view at 300 El Camino Real in Menlo Park, CA, from April 16 through May 13, 2014.
