a dault

August 30, 2011

not sure if i want to take brooklyn-based artist julia dault‘s paintings too seriously or not. with titles like “rowdy cats,” “bunga bunga,” and “skull crusher,” it seems like julia’s not asking us to ponder silently about abstraction, but rather wants to engage the viewer with color and roller-coaster-rides along her lines. her sculptures...

playtime

March 5, 2011

playgrounds in the states are so predictable- kid and baby swingsets, monkey bars, a single plastic spiral slide and a tire swing, if you’re lucky. but those living in atlanta are lucky to play on something a bit different- the piedmont park playscape, designed by isamu noguchi, a japanese-american artist. built in 1976 with sponsorship from...

December 29, 2010

we can’t really talk about dirt and art without mentioning the land artists of the 60s and 70s. walter de maria is often put into this category, utilizing the great expanses of land in the west for his infamous work, the lightning field (which we visited this summer, i’ll write more about that soon)....
