    Hi Lesley, I think you make beautiful paintings, You have a great feeling for the flow of paint and structural landscapes

    hot damn these are good.

    they have a collage/cubist feel to them, but are less concerned with outlining and more about the structure of the perspectives created by the brush.

    they seem to fight within in the frame, rather than against it, causing more tension in the structures themselves, a kind of inner turmoil and contradiction.

    It would be interesting to see a bit more character from the paint itself, to give the medium a little bit more personality and show the artists hand, but still very solid work.

      Very insightful comments Roh.

      Leslie, the paintings are very deluxe. I find them quite conversational and very expressive. A pleasure to look at!

    Lucky enough to see these at the Whitney Biennial this year-they were definitely my favorite things there! In person they are even more breathtaking… relatively small, and the flatness of the surface, the lack of the artist’s hand, I found was cool, when viewed in person. They are like little panels of pure light!

Artist JR Makes the Louvre’s Glass Pyramid Disappear


Photo by @davidg16er

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
