    The unique and remarkable ‘Dragons’ armchair was acquired from Miss Gray by Suzanne Talbot, the first patron to provide her with an opportunity to create a complete environment. The exotic, symbolist character of the piece situates it conceptually within the first phase of Miss Gray’s creative cycle.

    Ron Gorchov, Beloved Painter of Stripped-Down Canvases, Is Dead at 90

    Ron Gorchov’s work ‘Victory’ was purchased at Sotheby’s auction in New York City for $118,750 in 2019.

    By stretching linen over curved stretcher bars, Gorchov achieves unique, concave surfaces which recall Bronze Age shields or sarcophagus masks. “I fell in love with Matisse’s way of using very little paint. I liked the elegance of using thin paint,” he explained.

  • Poet of Light & Neon, Keith Sonnier (Artnet obit)

    “The difference with Keith is that he has a willingness to expose himself to experimentation that a lot of his peers lacked,” curator Jeffrey Grove, who worked on the artist’s seminal show “Until Today” at Parrish Museum, told Artnet News. “And that’s not a lack of rigor, that’s a confidence… a kind of quirky confidence that allowed him the freedom to expose himself to nontraditional materials that a lot of artists of his generation weren’t doing at the time.”(via Artnet)

  • Keith Sonnier (1941-2020, Mamou, Louisiana) was a Postminimalist, performance, video and light artist.[1] Sonnier was one of the first artists to use light in sculpture in the 1960s, and was been one of the most successful with this technique. Sonnier was a part of the Process Art Movement.(via wiki)

  • Keith Sonnier – 1969, Artforum

    WAS BORN in Mamou, a French-and-English-speaking town in Louisiana. The unassimilated Frenchness of Sonnier’s background—he speaks with no Southern accent—partly made for an unregretted childhood, and one which was open to the arts; at least it was not hostile to personal eccentricity. His father ran an hardware and electrical supply store. At 12 he drove. He went to Mamou High between 1955 and 1959. Nothing deeply disrupted this Southern rural picture except when, at 15, he had an inkling that “there had to be something else.”

  • RIP Luther Price Experimental Filmmaker

    RIP Luther Price. Word has come from Patrick Friel and Bobby Abate that the experimental filmmaker Luther Price has died. Starting as a teenager in the 1980s, he was one of the most inventive and endlessly productive filmmakers around. Initially working in super8, his films, installations and visual art works never ceased to amaze. A few years ago, Anthology Film Archives preserved some of his short films from the 1990s, and i was struck (again) at how vibrant his work was. Such a loss! Only in his 50s!

    Christo… he lost his partner a few years ago.. Jeanne Claude they were both born on June 13.. they were like twins. When they wrapped the islands in Biscayne Bay Miami.. I lived in Miami Beach .. my house was on the waterfront.. saw this installation.. also sailed around the islands.

    Artist Christo Vladimirov Javacheff walks on his monumental installation “The Floating Piers” he created with late Jeanne-Claude, on June 16, 2016 during a press preview at the lake Iseo, northern Italy. Some 200,000 floating cubes create a 3-kilometers runway connecting the village of Sulzano to the small island of Monte Isola on the Iseo Lake for a 16-day outdoor installation opening on June 18. / AFP / Filippo MONTEFORTE / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE – MANDATORY MENTION OF THE ARTIST UPON PUBLICATION – TO ILLUSTRATE THE EVENT AS SPECIFIED IN THE CAPTION (Photo credit should read FILIPPO MONTEFORTE/AFP via Getty Images)

    Christo and his late wife Jeanne-Claude have always been outsized influences on my art, even from the beginning. When I was lucky enough to be part of the team that was awarded a Bloomberg grant a few years ago for Breathing Lights, I was asked what artist I wanted to meet with about the project. I said Christo. Instead I got to meet with Maya Lin (not a bad second choice). I own all of their films and most of their books, and have studied them endlessly. Along with their immense impact on environmental art, I have also thought they they have never been properly recognized as the grandparents of social practice art. Their importance in my life cannot be underestimated. I so hope that their L’Arc de Triomphe project, which after initially being proposed 50 (!) years ago just received approval this year, will still move forward.
    You were two of the good ones. Thank you, and goodbye.
