wilder shores of love

Maya in front of a Cy Twombly painting at the Tate Modern.

  • Metal Monday! Except it's Tuesday!
  • Scrawl the clouds red and release the wild birds from the doodling hand of the Creator, for Cy Twombly is dead
  • Really, Cy Twombly was one of those artists that I hated at first, thought was a total sham and then in the Houston gallery devoted to his work got Instant Understanding, and through that experience, more slowly, an understanding how art works. 
  • The key to which is that works is an active verb and you are the thing worked upon.
  • Tess Brunet and her Au Ras Au Ras project is not metal, but she's got roots in my hometown of Houma which lends its own metal cred.

Cy Twombly, Wilder Shores of Love, 1985.
