INFINITY IN 10 MINUTES

Mark Rothko eh?

One picture was just black.

No, just black.

One picture was just white.

No, just white.

One picture was just grey.

No, just grey.

And there were various combinations of the three.

Here is the sentence where i pretend i know something…

Ok… if the thing is sparseness, infinity, the emotions arouse, the depiction of nothing…

Surely the ones where theres a bit of something… texture… shading are cheating.

You know what we love Rothko but really the ones where theres more colour. We like simple combinations of colour.

Now these ones.

And there was about 12.

Were not that.

We liked the feeling of infinite emptiness. …Doesn’t everyone?

But it doesn’t take v long to digest.

10 minutes.

Some words: black, white, grey.

love,

MUSEUM ROUNDUP

When is a museum not a museum?

When its a cabinet.

Twinings Tea Museum is an unholy exaggeration.

We thought… We like tea… We like museums…

Shame on you.

*****

The Royal Institute is good if you follow some crazy americans round.

Its passable.

Dont make a special trip.

If combining with the tea museum combine with something else as well…

U just aint sweet enough already.

Love,

Harleyxx

*****

B4 that… U kno art theory no.2 is based on boobs?

I rest my case (and weary sexless eyes) on John Currin @sadiecoles.

They say: Paradigms of ideal womanhood (milky skin, alluring smiles) run up against incongruous details such as underarm hair and overabundant flesh.”

Time Out says “The poses relate not only to the tacky and explicit nature of porn but also to the idealised depiction of the naked female form throughout art history.”

We say: “Like we said.”

Two words: boobs, fanny.

Cheers.

Love,

Harleyxx
