Perhaps no other Neri I've seen has brought Giaciometti to mind so thoroughly. These two works seem to say something very different from other Neris I've encountered, and maybe that is what's made all the difference.
A look at one of the centerpieces of the phenomenal exhibition of Manuel Neri currently up at the Anderson Collection at Stanford!
I don't remember how or when I saw this mural, but I know for a fact I did, and the moment I re-discovered it looking for lost art of 9/11/01 for the podcast, I was taken back...
I've talked about Neri some before, about how I don't love his statuary works, but the new exhibition at The Anderson is a remarkable presentation of his work, and especially his works on paper, that really move me.
Our second look at a piece (mostly) lost on 9/11/01, Alexander Calder's Bent Propeller brings Chris around to talking about how he got here...
Martha Diamond is a pretty damn good painter, and he's a wonderful piece that moved me to thoughts...
