Seems like all detroit artists assemble stabliity from the shattered, deceased skeleton around them.

Why only paint in grays?

5:07> "why only paint in grays?" -is that a criticism or an honest question?

is detroit in a state of construction or a state of deterioration? this is my question/statement for you! i imagine detroit's landscape as kind of like east germany!

the historical narration of detroit and its outskirts is still being illustrated play-by-play in real time by us image makers, and how exciting for us to be here at this point in time!

>>>"Seems like all detroit artists assemble stabliity from the shattered, deceased skeleton around them."

that's because these themes are relevant and exciting to think about!

i'm speaking for myself.

it is indeed an exciting time to be here, and especially to be an artist here

where else can you ride the crest of a visual wave such as this?

Detroit is a hard place to create in, a perfect example of the greed of the american revolution. If the city burns, move the industy to the borders and surround the polluted lake with billboards and stripmalls.

75 and 94 starting at comerica park run billboards of attractions far outside of the citys boarders. Soaring eagle casino, dilute your despare outside the city.

There is something great to be said about recollecting and reviving ones vision of there enviorment by exposure to the arts. But thats not what is going on in the old warehouse art gallery spaces in detroit, a cardboard box with a painting leaning against it in the middle of the floor fails to suggest anything to me.

If the work fails to speak for itself the artist has failed. Fuck the banter that is the artist abstract statement. The image and the art should have universal visual signifigence. I should react to your work without the assistence of the artist banter.

In the years the factorys outside the city could look alot like the oldpackard building. It all results in a true need to change the culture of detroiters, develop a concern to replant that city.

AA: Modernism tried that but everyone realized it was a bunch of silly idealism. Nothing is universal.

AA: What do you think about white paintings with single black squares in them?

they serve as a great door matt, and if you tile them they would look wounderful on extreme home makeover.

Do you even think the limitations of ones talents directs ones need to simplify symbols. One can only create inside of the limitations of ones toolbox, with the knowledge and ability gained when learning technique one developes a personal filter that is not only more complex but more sophisticated.

Allowing the artist to search for larger more delicate symbols.

Its a fucking box, all the banter you throw against the wall fails to make it more then a box.

Phenominal reading. I was totally going for "door matt (sic)" and "fucking box."

Also, I currently have an exhibition at MoNA that opens this Sat. (June 23rd) from 6-8. You all should come. Door mats and fuckin' boxes will abound!

square=box

I guess I should draw you a picture, sorry to be to abstract.

AA: Okay. Sorry. Well, the comment on the black square was in reference to Malevich's 'Black Square' painting which was used to posit a universal art. One in which "[t]he image and the art[...] have universal visual signifigence."

Man, all my wise-cracking efforts to find out you guys are waxing art historic.

Serves me right.


As far as the "universal visual signifigence" is concerned, I tend to side with Ms./Mr. Androgyny.

Subjective interpretation is one of the best things about the visual arts in my opinion.

i predict that there will be a ton of defense for this work in a minute, you know, like the point is to create a conversation and how can it be so bad if there's so much talk about it . does this all sound familiar?
