Accidental Assisted Readymade (Floor Piece)

Wet & Dry

Been awhile. Believe it or not, I’m still here.

Asparagus

Adrien Coorte, Still life with White Aparagus, 1697

A spontaneous visit to the Rijksmuseum.

A spontaneous encounter with an unknown painting.

A new favorite.

Maybe it’s the fact that markets and supermarkets are currently overflowing with white asparagus.

A vegetable that I’ve always struggled to appreciate, unlike its green counterpart.

Maybe it was the “director’s choice” signage next to it.

I hope not.

Maybe it was the translucence of the paint and the simplicity and intimacy of the composition.

I think so.

Maybe it was a combination of all of the above.

Probably.

After seeing the video report of the Philip Guston show at McKee gallery, by James Kalm, I knew I had to see the show.

I was not disappointed.
