'With my spyglass I can observe a woman who is reading on a terrace in the valley,' I told her. 'I wonder if the books she reads are calming or upsetting.'

'How does the woman seem to you? Calm or upset?'

'Calm.'

'Then she reads upsetting books.'

But they didn’t come, and so I continued to sit there hour after hour watching the unrelenting rain slosh against the glass, thinking of our life together, Lotte’s and mine, how everything in it was designed to give a sense of permanence, the chair against the wall that was there when we went to sleep and there again when we awoke, the little habits that quoted from the day before and predicted the day to come, though in truth it was just an illusion, just as solid matter is an illusion, just as our bodies are an illusion, pretending to be one thing when really they are millions upon millions of atoms coming and going, some arriving while others are leaving us forever, as if each of us were only a great train station, only not even that since at least in a train station the stones and the tracks and the glass roof stay while everything else rushes through it, no, it was worse than that, more like a giant empty field where every day a circus erected and dismantled itself, the whole thing from top to bottom, but never the same circus, so what hope did we really have of ever making sense of ourselves, let alone one another?

Nicole Krauss, Great House


that is one long sentence.

"Mr. applies and alienates the pictorial idiom of the manga in his large-format paintings, working on his very own concept of the flat painting while at the same time creating pictorial space through his choice of unusual perspectives.”

"We Have To Keep Going" by Jing Wei.  My favorite of the pieces from Brooklyn BETA spaces.  Like a little miniature dream. (seen @ Fire Proof Bar/Cafe)

a painting by Jon Avelluto.  Now, I didn’t really get this series  until someone explained it to me.  I had assumed they were sketches of a  deconstructed piece of loose leaf paper (or something).  But really,  the pieces are layers and layers of acrylic paint mounted on a glass  pane.  High concept fun!
