Rare candid photographs of Jean-Michel Basquiat on view at Suzanne Geiss Company
NEW YORK, NY.- Suzanne Geiss Company presents Jean-Michel Basquiat, Reclining Nude, an exhibition of rare candid photographs of Jean-Michel Basquiat taken by Paige Powell. This is the first presentation of photographs from Powell’s comprehensive archive, a significant chronicle of 1980’s art and culture in America. Her work offers uncommon glimpses into the lives of artists and friends who participated in the cultural transformations of the era. On view is a series of black and white 35mm nude portraits of Jean-Michel Basquiat made in 1983 in Powell’s then Upper West Side apartment.
asylum-art: Can piling logs be an art form? Yes, apparently. There are people out there who arrange huge piles of logs into beautiful pictures that will gradually disappear as they are burned throughout the cold winter months.
It can all seem a bit absurd until you realize that, depending on the type of wood and how they’re cut, logs actually present quite the variety of colors and textures for someone with the patience and the eye to take advantage of them. There are even art galleries that have showcased art like this. If you’ve been inspired to create your own log pile art, share it with us below!
