  1. The range of spherical bumps is wonderful. Jon Pestoni achieves similar textures with ceramic granules (in some kinds of kitty litter) applied to aluminum sheets before he begins to paint. Some of his work is at the Transformer Station on W. 29th until July 10. Not surprisingly the online photographs (and my own iPhone images) capture the textures and colors very poorly. I really liked his work but cannot begin to describe it, esp. after reading this overheard comment at one of his shows: “It’s not only a conflation of cognitive dissonance but a topographic way of looking at pictures beyond the signifier. A divergence from Cézanne’s envelope of ambiance and attitude but with a consummate catalogue of emotions.” !!!

    • Eegad. I’m sure someone knows what all that means. Thanks for you understandable (and appreciated) comment on my dumpster’s spherical bumps, David.

  2. I like these closeups. Art-talk can be incredibly pretentious, but I get what was being said and the painter’s work sounds interesting. OK, I googled – some of his paintings appeal to me – isn’t it nice how the commenting section works??

    • It is nice. When I started blogging, I considered not allowing comments. Heavens! I love them; so glad I did allow them after all. (I’d have missed out on all the wonderful comments from you!)
