David Stafford's Blog – July 2014 Archive (9)

Harford, Radford and Tic Tac

A giganto barrel of work from Tic Tac, our friend in far off Starnberg. With a collection this big you could start a museum which I have done and now I have to write the copy for the exhibition catalogue. Starting in the upper left hand corner three images become a "Vagrant Story" of the viewer's own weaving. Because the photos will probably be too small to see…

Jay Block and Katerina Nikoltsou

Jay Block sent me this deceptively simple photo collage, an elegant blending of imagery that hints at the confused sensuousness trapped beneath the victorian finery. Great color palette. It's like a sachet in your great-grandmother's underwear drawer. I love the range of expressions in the group. Clearly they were instructed to look like proud hardwood…

Nadine and Susan

New Arrivals. Nadine Wendell-Mojica sent me this PeeWee goes Headless pc which I have duly appropriated. Also in the envelope was this:

Note the swiveling hand. The text reads: "This is Terry; Rehab Counselor at…

Amy, Moan Lisa and Katerina

Amy Irwen sent me this CD with a duality all its own. On one side dire straits: time bombs and menacing shadowy figures, on the other the Fear No Art mandala, emerging from the center of a Frank Zappa vortex, all hand-made, which means many hours dipping into the gigantic vat of Mod Podge Amy keeps by her nightstand. And because I told Amy about the humble…

WEN RODGERS

I received this today from Wen though I had to track the address down to identify them. It's really a suite of sweet pieces beginning with this…

Raphael 'L: Who Wins The Race

An interesting double sided bit of eco-politique. On one side the ever-popular children's illustration: "who is the fastest animal?" to which Raphael has added a new entrant: Climate Change Refugee, dead last. Observing all this, clipboard in hand, a corporate lackey trying to either monetize or weaponize some kidney stone of information they've extracted from…

Katerina and Nancy: A Forced Collaboration

In this corner wearing the blue and white of her native Greece, Katerina Nikoltsou. And in that corner Nancy Bell Scott and her Big Hair of Yesteryear. Let's put them into the Blog-o-Matic Blender and turn it up to 7.

Voila! Not too bad for…

Dean aka Our Man in Sienna or Mantua or Pantua

Dean's latest is all of a piece with this trend I've noticed: Classical Revivalism. (Based on a statistical sample of two). Parenthetical expressions may reflect the opinions of others. Authorial voice resumes here: Yes, but look at the other example: Indiana Roger's History of Art as expressed through the shape of a curvilinear phallus. (It…
