..... the Peter Saul show Neptune And The Octopus Painter at Veneklasen/Werner the other day.
Funny old man making ridiculously funny paintings.
I had a studio visit with him a couple of years ago and we talked about traveling, living abroad, and making interesting paintings for yourself even though nobody else seems to care about them. Making the work that you want to see in the first place will eventually be seen by others, too. But avoid making things that disappear in the meaningless mass of nothing.
Here are some details of his work in the show.
Detail of Wall Street Suicide.
Detail of I Don't Care.
Detail of You Hurt My Feelings.
Detail of Head.
Detail of Need To Shave.
Shows up until June 29, 2013.
Check it out!!
