Paola Pivi, I love you. I've been following you for sometime now, a little bit like a groupie and somewhat like a kid following a circus. Your circus is usually populated by the most fantastic menagerie of exotic animals doing hilariously domestic things. Like a leopard knocked out from sipping too many cups of tea from leopard rimmed tea-cups for instance. Apart from being accessible and appropriate for all ages, I love your wry, dry sense of humor. The best thing an adult can retain from childhood is a sense of mischief and of play. Your art is rife with that. I'm so happy that you are the inaugural artist in the New York Galerie Perrotin space. I love that Emmanuel kept the French spelling for the American market. I mean it took me a while to stop misspelling it as "galarie" in my posts but that's process right?...Make the mistake...and thus learn from trying.

Once at a dinner with a group of artists, I expressed embarrassment at my profession in fashion. Mr. Matthew Day Jackson advised me to stop stuttering and own up to the function . I think about that whenever I see his work.

HUMAN, ALL TOO HUMAN : A JOE BRADLEY COMPLEX

Pop Art meets  Greco-Roman sculpture meets The Bangles’ video of pop hit “Walk like an Egyptian.”Pop Art meets Greco-Roman sculpture meets The Bangles’ video of pop hit “Walk like an Egyptian.”

"There has never been much evidence of work in Joe Bradley`s art, and therein resides much of its signification. The individual units of Bradley`s paintings have always been literally blank and, more significantly, militantly haphazard. With his works` scabrous, cheap surfaces; his "casualness" concerning proper leveling and hanging; and his ambivalent (if not antagonistic) attitude toward the conventionally stretched canvas, Bradley falls somewhere between a heroic practitioner of "grunge art" and a loafer."

I meant to write "Current Viewing" but the title of this show is so long, it ate the whole lead field of this post.
