…or maybe it was the other way around. anyway, looked like they might be interesting to photograph, pace Garry Winogrand
What does that key even fit?
I spent the final week of 2020 quarantined in my bedroom from the day after Christmas until a couple of days into the New Year – 10 days. While I never suffered any symptoms, I had accompanied my mother to take the test that was positive in her case, potentially exposing me and I followed NY State’s guidelines (and, yes, she’s nicely recovered now, thank you). Towards the end of those 10 days I pulled out my camera, attached a 60mm macro lens (90mm e) and started looking around the bedroom for something to shoot. Fair warning: bedroom macros coming up!
Continuing west on 24th Street we came to the Luhring Augustine Gallery and these Frank Auerbach works (from 1978 – 2016). Really luscious impasto and a lovely autumnal palette of (mostly) muted shades.
The first stop on our gallery tour yesterday was Lehman Maupin to see Billie Zangewa’s Wings of Change. These are works of a South African artist, working in silk collage, dealing with the world of Covid-19 isolation. I’ve tried to pair most of the works with a close-up, detail shot to show how these magnificent works were created.
More from the Bisa Butler exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art, continuing from my last post. Click any image to see them all enlarged.
Last week I posted a shelf of Anthony Burgess – here’s another. the second shot is more of a shameless plug for the Islers, my father’s novels, my sister’s text and a few of my own poor entries.
Another home shot with the Fuji 60mm macro lens and, unfortunately, too-hot Litra cube.
