New York Fucking City

I’ll refrain from the old cliches, that New Yorkers really are the nicest people despite the reputation or that fuck is just a part of the vocabulary. What’s been eating at me is that I’ve decided it’s fucking crack. The OG. Once you’re here everywhere else seems lame, and you know what? Everywhere else is not lame, you just have some sort of warped perception because you’ve been on the crack too long. Everything’s posh and glitz and even the seedy has its own appeal. I long to stand in the tumble weeds, I want to sleep in the desert. But here I am…stuck on the crack, pounding my head in fear I’d never make it in the tumbleweeds for long. It’s been said if you can make it in New York you can make it anywhere, but if you’ve made it here can you take it anywhere else?

New York City feels small to me, Lilliputian, homey. Yet all the tiny facets of this gleaming gem make it shine so brightly.  The prisms illuminate me, taunting me like a sequin-clad dancer at Studio 54 long after the music’s over. Have I become no more than a hovering moth?  The limelight’s gone. I’ve basked till I burned.

Where would I go? I suppose I’d acclimate after time, though the very thought is difficult to digest. As hard as it is to imagine any other life than burning brightly until that last, long goodnight.

“VOGLIO IL TUO TESCHIO” MF GALLERY GENOVA: 17 SETTEMBRE- 26 OTTOBRE 2010

It’s untimely to write about this now at its end, but I attended in person…and was having too much fun.
Genoa is a remarkable city with beautiful, sophisticated and kind people. Their gelato beats any in NYC hands down, the espresso mi piace and the cheeses, mmm (not the headcheeses)…
The city is as beautiful as it’s people, with artwork everywhere, even the streets and buildings. I wish it were more like that here. The shopping is FAB. (FAB!!!)

An Italian Newspaper, the Corriere Mercantile, covered the MF Skulls show and chose my painting for the story:

The JC old-timers up the block love that.

 

Christopher Columbus is from Genoa.

With M&F, opening night @ MF Gallery, Genoa.

The opening was great and successful but it was xtra fun for Martina’s Bday, complete with skull cakes!

Frank, with his piece behind him to the right. Also pieces by Scott Holloway, Drew Maillard and a bunch of other great artists.

Morg & MF

Paulo & Wife, Enrico & Viola

It was a great night!

Around Genoa, too many beautiful things to even capture in a week. I had fantastic hosts and couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thanks M&F!

Silvano, who was also in MF show

We went & picked grapes at Viola’s family vinyard in the north. It was amazing.

Headcheese

Ooooh in love with Camogli

Martina graciously lent me her copy of “Hell’s Angel’s” when I couldn’t sleep and for the long travels home through France and Holland.

I really love Holland, I’d like to live there.

Someday.

xoxo
