What I Looked At Last Week: Al Held

al_held_artblogartblog.jpg


As always, Abelow has the goods. In this case, it's nice detail shots of the "interesting" parts of Al Held's Alphabet Paintings at Cheim & Read, which are very nice.

The more time goes by, the paint goes down, the more paintings like this and the brushy little Blinky Palermos up at MoMA right now that I look at, the more I start to wonder if finish fetish is just not where it's at for me after all.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
