more Paris

A Michelangelo slave in the Louvre; Monday morning in the Rue Montorgeouil; and looking out the window of my apartment in the Rue de la Jusienne

go see Chuck

Chuck Close exhibit at Greg Kucera
October 4-November 10

212 Third Ave S
Seattle WA 98104


His inventiveness is inspiring. His portraits are humane and compelling even as they dazzle technically. And it is something of an artistic miracle the way he builds form from squiggles of color...even to a painter.

Also showing, and worth the trip in his own right, is Drew Daly. Eloquently manipulated furniture and distorted photographs. And upstairs: prints by the quilters of Gee's Bend. A satisfying show all around.

The view from the top of the Centre first day in Paris, jetlagged and wired...I'll post more shots from my trip, bit by bit, as the mood strikes.
