ALRIGHT, last few thoughts on SF MOMA (for now). First up is Marsha Cottrell who creates galactic feeling pieces. At 14′ x 9′ in dimension, ‘A Black Powder Rains Down Gently on My Sleepless Nights’ is comprised of over 200 prints on mulberry paper and has enough detail to keep you occupied for a good few hours.
Next is Jay Defeo, a prolific artist that created in various mediums. The museum had DeFeo’s ‘The Rose’ on display, which is a massive sculptural painting that has nearly 2,000 pounds (yes, a ton) of layered oil paint. Taking the artist 8 years of painstaking refining, some rumors have it that the painting is still not dry (completed in1966), but I couldn’t verify with the gallery cops prowling. Not permitted to photograph the work, I did get a photo of the plaque, and have included stock imagery of some of her work.
Then a few more random bits and a Rothko that is done a pretty great disservice by my camera and the poor lighting and color match, but hey.
