KEN PRICE Sculptures

I just recently discovered the latest works of KEN PRICE (b. 1935), a sculptor represented by the Matthew Marks Gallery in NY, and on exhibit until April 10, 2010.

I applaud an artist who creates works as a manifestation that which he finds pleasurable, and like the NY Times says, are "quintessential examples of biomorphic formless art."

INDIA INK PENS

ART SUPPLY INSIGHT:
Sharpie Ultra Fine pens BLEED when you SPRAY FIX (Lascaux Fixative) them on a NON-PAPER or NON-POROUS surface. Faber-Castell Pitt India Ink PENS do not (bleed).

I adore the "S" pen for its thin tip (compared to Sharpie Ultra Fine).

BANDAGE Paintings

Kristina Bell DiTullo creates sublime compositions (paintings?) using a variety of bandages or Band-aids. I love their transparency.
