art

Post by slatepipe » Sun Feb 09, 2014 5:24 pm

i'm always interested in art and going to see it in galleries or wherever it's on. in the last couple of weeks i've been to see the chapman brothers at the serpentine (fantastic) and yesterday i went to see martin creed at the hayward (fucking awful). we also nipped into the courtauld to look at a bit of cezanne and gauguin. as you do

if anyone would like to point me in the direction of some artworks and/or artists that they get a buzz from then please go ahead

here's what floats my boat :
rauschenberg - i could stare at his collages and screenprints for days
chapman brothers - http://jakeanddinoschapman.com/
some damien hirst - his pickled animals anyway
bill viola - http://www.billviola.com/
joe coleman - there's a lot to look at in his paintings http://www.joecoleman.com/home.
i'm a big fan of outsider art in general and like a lot of adolf wolfli's drawings in particular
jasper johns, a bit of warhol, twombly

one of the greatest installations i ever saw was from a few years ago down brick lane - christoph buchel http://www.frieze.com/issue/review/christoph_buchel/

that's all that springs to mind at the moment.....

The thread title also doesn't specify that the OP is about visual art.

All I know is that slatepipe is one of the most creative and talent motherfuckers on this forum. I remember a little short film he did whilst riding on an airplane and then did the soundtrack...all on the spot. I hope I'm remembering tha correctly. :oops:

Oh, here it is:

Oh...artists. Yeah.

I really shy away from hyper antagonistic artists like the Chapman Bros. I'm much more drawn to folks that have a strong architectural sensibility about their work:



Andy Goldsworthy
Amazing all around..

diller scofidio + renfro
These people are architects that own their own firm in NYC. Most of their early and mid career was spent doing very interesting and provocative installation pieces. Absolutely stunning and cool, I think you'd really like it slate... Here's one called Master/Slave... A modernistic model of architecture with toy robots on an assembly line:

The firm recently did The High Line elevated railway in NYC - probably my most favorite piece of architecture.

heheh - i thought this thread was dead in the water. nice to see it's picked up a bit

mr loops - thanks for your comments, i'd like to meet you one day and have a few beers. (i edited the soundtrack back on the ground though - but all the sounds and images were recorded on the plane. most of the sounds were initially made by me jamming and mixing with the two handheld things) what the fuck else are you meant to do on a plane once you've got drunk and eaten all the snacks anyway :wink:

stringtapper - i was just curious about people's tastes in art in general, not necessarily visual art. sound art too if people have any recommendations? i did a degree in it a few years back and it was really eye (and ear) opening for me. but yeah, i guess most art has a visual aspect to it


i shall now retire back to stroking my chin 8)

Cool. There's a few really good books about these guys if you've got a decent art/architecture book store near you.
