hyde or die


I consider myself an artful blogger. What more can I really say?

    “The joke’s on all of you. This is not a roast. This is my greatest most elaborate art installation ever. I’m not the real guest of honor, these aren’t real comedians and we’re not even on a real network. What you’ve seen tonight was my brilliant opus to sequester an artistic visionary and subject him to the mindless incoherent trashings of talentless abnormalities. I call it Genius Unscathed and this is my masterpiece.”

    — And somehow James Franco just wormed his way back into my heart.

    » Jay-Z responsible for Tom Ford spike?

    If so, will we see a spike for Picasso? Jean Michel? Artists that were featured in the video? Is anyone going to keep track?

    “For me, the act of painting is a seduction by way of a contradiction. While creating on the ground is labour-intensive work, I am somehow transported beyond the physical. Rather than adding layers of paint, I feel I am digging a tunnel to another land.”

    Billy Zane is a painter and I actually can’t wait until he has a show in Los Angeles.

    Just watched the Jay-Z short film on HBO

    And I am pretty impressed with how many artists I recognized.

    My boss was telling me a story about a prank that an artist did to a bunch of other artists like Jeff Koons and such (it was the 80’s) that they asked them to come and get their photograph with Michael Jackson. Every single person showed up and were freaking out excited to meet Michael Jackson, and of course he was never scheduled to be there and they just had a photograph of just them, all hoodwinked and such.

    Anywho, I don’t know where I’m going with this but I thought it was tangential. Everyone gets excited to see their favorite musicians. I’ve never seen Lawrence Weiner smile so broadly.

    Also, Jay-Z hugs Marina Abramovic at the end and asks her if she liked it. That was pretty cute.

    I helped Liana answer my favorite question today, is it art?

    “The night saw new highs at auction for Carol Bove, Joe Bradley, Dan Colen, Mark Grotjahn, Sergej Jensen, Bharti Kher, Robert Longo, Adam McEwen, Raymond Pettibon, Elizabeth Peyton, Rob Pruitt, Sterling Ruby and Mark Ryden.”

    Leonardo DiCaprio’s charity auction at Christie’s set some records.

    It’s interesting how they discuss that even though the artists don’t get the tax benefit of the full price of the work, these new records and attention will be very beneficial in the long run. I would like to think that this wouldn’t be the only reason to donate expensive works, but it’s not a bad side-effect.

    “Like that scene in “12 Monkeys” where Brad Pitt is showing Bruce Willis around the Psych Ward of that hospital, and all the patients are acting out their own specialized form of dementia? That’s like the art world and it’s fucking awesome.”
