FRANCESCO CLEMENTE:THE HISTORY OF THE HEART IN THREE RAINBOWS

Uncategorized May 4th, 2009

I checked out my old friend Francesco Celemente’s opening on Saturday. It was a interesting show for Deitch unlike most of what they have been showing of late. Francesco is one of the first people I knew who made a serious living from being a fine artists and is a nice cat he always seemed amused at me and my friends antics and always invited us to his functions and what not. He is a part of NYC in a participatory way which I dig. I also am a big fan of his work is emotive, beautiful and personal.  There is no conveyor belt prefabricated baloney going on in his work. His work is honest and focused. This show was no exception.

The vibe at the gallery was a bit surreal it felt like a flashback to the art superstar world of the early 90’s a bit laden with former super models and the rich and fabulous. It was a awkward scene of sorts and made me laugh when I thought about the madness I had seen transpire in the same locale in recent years as this was the most civilized and sunbathed crowd I had seen at a Deitch opening in a while, it felt very Chelsea to me.

Regardless of the scene the work was great. Go check it out when nobody’s in the gallery and enjoy I know I’m going to do a revisit so I can really soak it all in.

Enjoy

    This is out there. I like it. Real quick, looking forward to seeing that new movie by Spike Jonze Where the Wild Things Are. Had to say it, because the art sparked the vibe of creativeness that reminded me of it.
