Black Santa Has A White Angel

Leaving the gallery tonight after work the streets were empty. It reminded me of the

times when I used to go to the Tunnel bar back in the 80's, back when the city was

still dangerous and Chelsea was Ghetto.



I passed a couple who may or may not have been Crackheads, they were toting her

belongings in a Granny Cart, she was scolding him for for something as perhaps

their souls were rotting away.



Finished up what I wanted to read in the Times on the ride home.… Continue

Social Networking for Artists (& Dummies)... Part 1

This is a blog post that I originally posted on my site: http//www.davidlamorte.com



I have been using social networks to promote my art and myself as an artist for some time now, and I get asked a lot of questions about how to use the web to get exposure for emerging artists. Even artists who

don’t know much about social networking know that they should probably

be on the web. If you are a visual artists who is starting to…

Last Friday of 07

Feeling a little better, good enough to go to work. Had my coffee and cigarettes, listened
to motivational music. Read about the rioting in Pakistan. Will get the times and check
out the art reviews on the subway ride to the gallery. I work three days a week, try and spend
three days in the studio and take one day off from all responsibilities. Don't have much
money, enough to get by. have five new paintings in progress, they hang in the studio,
waiting.

Half Price

Called in sick, slept late, needed some rest.

Headed to the mall nearby, bought a few things

on sale, the line was about fifteen minutes

to check out.



Painted for a couple of hours, working on the new

self-portrait, it is a nude caught in a state of

obvious arousal. I am basing this piece on

some sex ad that I had posted briefly.

The Glitter and Doom show from last

year at the Met, the voluptuous and voyeuristic

sex, the openness, also informs… Continue

Day After

At work, the day after Christmas. Chelsea is deserted, the streets are empty

of the usual bustle. Sit in the gallery and find work for myself, wait for the

mailman to come in and drop off today's mail.



The neighborhood feels like what it might if this perpetually bursting bubble

finally imploded. What happened to all of the artists, all of the hungry babble,

who will save us from ourselves?



What kind of seekers are there roaming the half shuttered assembled… Continue

The Passing of Elizabeth Murray



One of my favorite artists died recently at the very young age of 66 from lung cancer (NYTimes Article). I was shocked when I found out. It seemed too soon to lose her, and although I didn't know Elizabeth Murray personally, I cried for nearly a week. At the rational level, this doesn't make any sense. First of all, I am not particularly… Continue

Peter Hujar

ICA, London

5 December 2007 - 27 January 2008



Review by David Shariatmadari



A favourite motif in renaissance portraiture was the skull or skeleton, sneaked into the corner of a painting, a chill blast of mortality over both the sitter and the viewer. In a pious age, a little reminder of death was seen as an appropriate foil to the celebration of life and vanity that the picture represented.



In their retrospective of Peter Hujar's photography – the… Continue

In Shenzhen: City of Expiration and Regeneration

By James Westcott



The day before the opening of the Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture, the mayor of Shenzhen toured the ex-factory hosting the bulk of the exhibition. (The Hong Kong branch of the Biennale opens in January.) He got to the top floor, and ordered that a second entry point be made to an outdoor deck so that people wouldn't have to go in and out by the same door. Late that night while the exhibitors were hurriedly finishing off… Continue

The Return of the New

By Rachel K. Ward

Anyone who has seen the movie Streets of Fire (1984) knows the glorified Bowery of the 1980s – wild gangs, lady rockers, jacked-up chases down dark alleys, trash cans on fire. The film's motto, "Tonight is what it means to be young," expressed the unbridled spirit of Lower Manhattan. Today, the Bowery is being tamed. The latest and most significant development is the re-opening of the New Museum of Contemporary Art on December 1.… Continue
