Currently reading the latest Bernie Gunther, unfortunately there's only one more to come following Phillip Kerr's untimely death.

Bernie talks about Durer a lot which has prompted me to look him up. This is one of his most talked about pieces, Melancholia.

@izzythepush,
Durer's Hare of 1502 is what I usually think of when I think of Durer. He did many magnificent woodblock prints.

His self portrait is pretty fine in itself.

@coluber2001,
On Saturday I went to Southampton Art Gallery to look at an exhibition of Da Vinci's sketches. They also had this Durer on display.

They also had fibre glass statues of Max Wall. This was one of the few exhibits you were allowed to touch.

@izzythepush,
If anyone's interested this is a short video on Max Wall, he wasn't just visual, he could do stand up with the best of them.



It's funny the directions Art takes you in, before my visit to the Gallery I never thought I'd be looking up videos of Max Wall and posting them. I had heard of him, mostly for his silly walk and the number of comedy impersonators of him in the 1970s, but I still don't know a lot about him and he's interesting to say the least.

Newly Uncovered Georgia O'Keeffe Letters Shed Light On Her Greatest Paintings

https://i.imgur.com/pWvqJJI.jpg
Quote:
In a 1936 letter to Henwar Rodakiewicz, Georgia O'Keeffe updated her friend on recent goings-on, including a new commission. The middle section reads: "I got an order for a big flower painting for Elizabeth Arden — got it myself ---"

"Water Sculpture

I am fascinated by the fragility and incompleteness that
exists with all things beautiful.
I throw water into the air, and in mid-flight it changes
shape constantly, being pulled by gravity and bursting
with surface tension. Each flight barely lasts more than a
second.
In each moment, the water becomes a beautiful figure which
can be defined as a “part man-made and part natural”
sculpture.
I wanted to capture these beautiful impermanent water
sculptures by photographing them in the exact moment, when
the essence of their existence is pure.


Kusho

As a young student, I often wrote Chinese characters in sumi ink. I loved the nervous, precarious feeling of sitting before an empty white page, the moment just before my brush touched the paper. I was always excited to see the unique result of each new brushing.

Once your brush touches paper, you must finish the character, you have one chance. It can never be repeated or duplicated. You must commit your full attention and being to each stroke. Liquids, like ink, are elusive by nature. As sumi ink finds its own path through the paper grain, liquid finds its unique path as it moves through air.
Remembering those childhood moments, of ink and empty page, I fashioned a large “brush” and bucket of ink. I get the same feeling, a precarious nervous excitement, as I stand before the empty studio space. Each stroke is unique, ephemeral. I can never copy or recreate them. I know something fantastic is happening. “a decisive moment”, but I can’t fully understand the event until I look at these captured afterimages, these paintings in the sky."
