More on Cy Twombly's Fluffy Clouds

This covertly shot video of the Cy Twombly opening, featuring the very paintings alluded to in my last post, does not excatly sell me on the paintings but offers an armchair art fan like myself a rather delicious meta-experience, getting all up close on the art and the people that go to big name openings. James Kalm, the covert videographer attends a lot of openings and graciously shares the experience.

Getting up close to them in the video, I start to see some of the residue factor I appreciate about Twombly, the scumbles and drips and the unfussy dashes of the brush but, as my wife astutely noted, they still look like designs for Urban Outfitters.
