    William Powhida Some Criteria For Evaluation, 2013 and What Can We Learn About Art? (panel 1 of 4), 2013

    Read about his new show Bill By Bill here.

    Bill By Bill turns out to be an earnest and successful attempt to make thoughtful, content-driven paintings. That is, once you realize that the real art in this show is not the fabricated objects on display but Powhida’s watercolor text pieces that supplement them. Well-crafted and explicit in their intent, these paintings are polar opposites of the redundant, boringly vague artworks that they mock. They depict Powhida’s ideas as handwritten texts scrawled across a piece of notebook paper. The illusion is so satisfying, and the writing so intriguing, you hardly notice that what you are really looking at are representational watercolor paintings created with such care that it’s almost sentimental.

    Deanna Rooney MEAT 2012

This incredible print by Deanna Rooney is available on Hyde or Buy! 
 I met her through friends and would never have expected such a delightful and wide eyed lady to think and manifest her art the way she does. It’s an incredible juxtaposition that will never cease to amuse and impress me.

Throwing my vote out there. I haven’t been right in a while, but I’m guestimating Paul Noble for Turner Prize this year. Let’s see how I do.
