Second Time Around

This image of our old place from Brutus (pre Lizard Cnyn) surfs the internet independently, by itself, It's like a stand up paddle boarder that won't go away until the sun is low and the entire population of California has been snaked.
~if you see it send it home.

Contents=mostly Atwater Pottery tea bowls and lone Akio bottle, BCR christmas orn, Nelson cigar, round Grabner, old Vance still life (of Heath bud vase), a chunk of Ennis, a good Russell Wright chair, a boring Nelson bench, an Aubock hook which turned out not to be, and Eames leg splint-yes Martin Boyce made AWESOME things with these.

Pollock Krasner House & Studio

We were fortunate enough to hear Gail Levin speak about Lee Krasner today, followed by a reception at the Pollock Krasner House & Study Center in Springs LI.
Levin met Krasner in the early 70's and became a huge supporter and advocate for her work, including her in the Whitney exhibition Abstract Expressionism: The Formative Years (co-curated with Robert Hobbs) - the first time Krasner would be considered as an abstract expressionist of the first generation.....literally one of the guys.
*Levin included one on Krasner's student paintings (to Lee's initial surprise), an abstract composition made during her studies with Hofmann, to illustrate her pre Pollock modernist roots. Her understanding of both Krasner and Pollock, their relationship, social, creative and critical context is incredible and is the subject of her new book, Lee Krasner, A Biography.

PS-if you go-go get a Pollock Burger around the corner here.
*Thanks A.B for the lead on the talk.




Picked up at Bart's in Ojai and finally read it on this trip, my first Fante outside of the Bandini saga, so good...if you make it to Bart's ask to see their stash of Black Sparrow Press cover prints.




~Aalto on Aalto, Paimio sconces 1933 (domo arigato J-san!)/Artek stacking stool.
~Connors on Aalto, something about the folding action of the table is happening in the drawing too...wait what the beach! [X].
~Native American basket collection hapily housed on Aalto shelf (which had me google imaging Haim Steinbach all day).


I just re-found this shot, my father (second from right)- probably mid 60's-easybeats era, Backbeach Rd, San Remo in Summer. I like the style on these lads, though the old man needs some shorts, or jungle shorts...workinclassIvy.
*more shots-same batch here....enjoy your summer.
