danny heller

i'm going to palm springs tomorrow. no, not really, but i might as well already be there. danny heller's work seems reminiscent of edward hopper, beautiful and lonely. paintings like this make me wish that i had enough money to buy art...

frank stella

frank stella years later still packs a minimalist punch. his larger more colorful works are perhaps more recognized but i love these muted, monochromatic paintings. simple perfection.

I'm really love graphic design from the 70s and 80's that is simple and direct, like these FRELIMO posters in support of the mozambican revolution.

back in 1997 my mom and i went to see an opening of lichtenstein's landscapes in the chinese style at the museum of fine arts in boston. i loved them then and i love them more now. alas, my one print from the show went up in smoke in 2001 but, happy day, i must be living right because a linchtenstein retrospective is coming to the art institute in chicago next month. if you happen on the windy city in the coming months make sure to pass by, you won't be disappointed.

so someone keeps falling off the wagon, but here we are again...maybe we'll actually post something in may...
