The Modern, Porno Reference #1 & The Rediscovery of Oral Fixation

Hello again art lovers,

1 hope you’ve all had a good week.  My week brought many nice surprises.  1 will tell you about three.

The 1st surprise is that my wife and 1 made a spontaneous trip to the Modern Museum in FT Worth Texas last Wednesday.  This was unexpected and really rewarding.  1 had visited the Modern a few years ago, but was in a very limited, miserable, rationalist reality tunnel and didn’t truly appreciate the experience of the first trip.  Toward the end of 2013, I had a paradigm shift which has been lasting.  This time, 1 was in awe of the architecture of the museum and the majority of the art work inside.  1 took along my Sony A5000 and shot many photographs of the architecture  and arrangements for future Apoko-Lips background emulsion purposes.

My wife also insisted that I photograph her with of two Warhol paintings and one Anselm Kiefer sculpture.  Of course, like many women, she choose to stand in front of the art work instead of beside it.

The 2nd surprise was being contacted by a collector from New York about a mixed media piece.  1 then sold the piece from 2012 titled Porno Reference #1!  The art was created with watercolor, acrylic and coffee.  As it tuns out, the collector purchased the piece for her boyfriend, which 1 believe, makes here a prime squeeze.

If the first 2 surprises were not good enough, here’s a 3rd surprise.  While doing some Spring cleaning, 1 rediscovered a piece that 1 thought had been destroyed.  It turns out it was just misplaced during our 2014 relocation.  The rediscovered art is titled Oral Fixation and was created in 2012 with spray paint and primer on cardboard.

Now, here’s a surprise for you. 

Since 1 believed Oral Fixation to be destroyed and had accepted the loss some time ago, 1 decided to offer the art up as a specially priced sale piece!

Oral Fixation will be specially discounted from today, July 8th until next Wednesday July 15th.
