checkout time...

maya lin at pace wildenstein in chelsea. i have wanted to see this exhibit for quite sometime, it's seeming simplicity allows the mind to move over each ledge. made out of over 50,000 vertical two-by-four pieces of wood the work is by no means simple but the uniformity of shape and material lend itself nicely to contemplative thought. i love art like this. unpretentious and straightforward.
off to nyc on sunday?

choe liscious...

i had the pleasure a few years back to spend an evening with the likes of david choe, alex pardee and saber who were in town on a tour for upper playground. all were very sweet and after an evening of pole dancers and late night desserts we all parted ways. it's nice to see what those randomly met folks are up to.

nicked from david's blog.

If you were to view Slinkachu's latest piece from afar, you'd probably wonder what the hell you were looking at. Move in a little closer, and you would discover you're in the midst of another one of his classic miniature scenes. Taking place in one of the many alleyways in Grottaglie, Italy, a seemingly old couple hang their laundry on a line tied to their balconies.

If this is the first time you've heard of this miniature mastermind, I would highly recommend checking out his "Little People" and "Inner City Snail".

back to life...

i did that thing that i tend to do which is overbook my life. i enrolled in classes at the university which begin in 2 weeks and yoga teacher training starts the second week in october. i can't imagine how much homework i will be doing. at least it will be fall/ early winter and i'll be wanting to keep myself busy. fall here is gorgeous but tends to be a bit short, so when the rain starts coming down we portlanders do what we can to keep ourselves busy and happy. this winter i'm envisioning fat books, scrabble, medieval art history, philosophy of religion, anatomy and physiology, sanskrit, living room handstands and lots of home cooking.
