[THIRD MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

Here's a post from my Primary Blog that offers Update on Richard Tuttle:

from THE CHATELAINE'S POETICS:

THE INSPIRATIONAL RICHARD TUTTLE

SF MOMA will be presenting The Art of Richard Tuttle, the most comprehensive presentation of Tuttle's work ever assembled with some 300 paintings, sculptures and works on paper covering a 40-year career. I can't wait -- this exhibit will be at SF MOMA from July 2 to Oct. 16, with several associated discussions, presentations et al about it.

I also see in the museum's July/August calendar a feature article on the Wire Pieces that Tuttle created between 1971 and 1974. "These works interlace pencil line, wire and shadow to fuse volume, surface, light, and space," sez the catalogue.

I agree. For me, Tuttle's Wire Pieces are mong the most inspirational contemporary art works to, uh, inspire me. Such as in this prose poem from my 2002 book Reproductions of the Empty Flagpole:



The Wire Sculpture
-- after Richard Tuttle's sculptures of pencil, wall, wire, shadows, nail, space

The shadow is thin but what slices air is thinner. The press of approximation is confidently approximate. It does not matter to the naked eye. What is solid is what is not visible. Once more, you look back at the sculpture. But the light has changed with the progress of the hour. You leave and dwell instead on the simmer deep within your belly. How a shadow's imperfection humbles you. How a shadow recalls a life you once wanted to possess versus the life that folds itself around your awkward steps.

"DER DOZEN DANTZ (THE DANCE OF DEATH)" (1991) (INK ON PAPER, 24 X 18 IN, 36 x 28 IN FRAMED) by MANUEL OCAMPO
Location: Galatea Offsite/San Francisco Apartment

[THIRD MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:


Manuel Ocampo recently opened a new exhibition at Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery. Here's the gallery's press release:

Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery is pleased to present The Holocaustic Spackle in the Murals of the Quixotic Inseminators, an exhibition of new paintings by Manuel Ocampo. The show will run May 28th through July 2, 2005.

Manuel Ocampo, an artist who has lived in Manila, Los Angeles, Rome, and Seville, portrays a world that combines fantasy, satire, and reality. Utilizing symbols from religion and secularism, intellectualism and pop culture, his paintings enact a grotesque pantomime that both mirrors and exaggerates the modern world.

Ocampo’s paintings often investigate taboo, exploring racism, the body, and other prohibited subjects in a way that can elicit shock from the viewer. Ocampo depicts a decadent and depraved world whose icons and symbols are used with a repetitiveness that can both lull and repel, and that reveal civilization’s achievements as hypocrisy by exposing what it seeks to repress. Shock and chaos themselves become recurrent themes, connected to the culture shock that Ocampo has experienced first hand, and to a social critique that rejects the self-righteousness of didacticism for a mischievous wink and the desire to break taboos.

Manuel Ocampo has exhibited internationally for over fifteen years, including representation in MOCA’s “Helter Skelter”, the 43rd Corcoran Biennial, the 1993 Venice Biennale and Documenta IX. He has had frequent gallery presentations in Germany, France, Mexico, and Spain, and his work is included in museum and important collections worldwide. Ocampo is a recipient of NEA and Pollock- Krasner awards to name a few.
