Hanging out in the catacombs under the @indycm with author @mauricebroaddus of “Pimp My Airship” fame. He was reading a passage from the book. An Afrofuturist writer, Broaddus was inspired by growing up in the @cityofindianapolis The catacombs became the scene of the underworld where the poor, disenfranchised “un-persons” live in his “Pimp” world.

“You can make the argument, as Nares has, that the defining characteristic of the city is its streets. Much of the artist’s work has located itself there, specifically the street surface, the textural layer of the concrete and asphalt and all the visual information caked into it. Since his arrival to New York in 1974, the street has been Nares’s great protagonist and, in the intervening years, he has spent a lot of time looking down.” —Max Lakin for Artnet

An Abstract Painter Defines a Space of His Own

It was such a privilege to work with Odili Donald Odita a few years ago on the realization of what was then his biggest site specific wall painting to date--seven stories at the Cummins Global Distribution Headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. Read this thoughtful review of his exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery in New York City. Jack Shainman Gallery

In his clashing compositions and use of artificial colors and materials Odita generates something very different from artists associated with geometric abstraction and Minimalism.

On this cold fall morning, warm up in this mod interior. Mickalene Thomas is famous for her mixed media and sometimes bejeweled paintings that examine beauty, femininity, race, sexuality, and gender. This limited edition published by @durhampress has a screen print base but also has collaged areas of wood veneer, digital prints, golf leaf, etc. It has a presence at 42 inches tall and 34 1/4 inches wide. Feels like an original but the price is much more approachable. Thomas’ work can be found in museums and private collections around the world.

I enjoy this work on paper by @marnashopoff for its energy and promise. Entitled “Fallen,” while see the dense layers of line and pops of red at bottom right, my eye floats up to the larger diagonals pointing to the openness and possibility in the upper right quadrant of the painting. When we fall, we need to acknowledge the knock but get up, dust off, and acknowledge the new possibilities generated through lessons learned.
