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

  • Roh

    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!

  • nice abstracts

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
