saviour_u Painted in 1964, Slieve More belongs to a group of nine works which Frank Stella called his Notched V Paintings. All the canvases are shaped as a single V which the artist intended to be hung in any direction (except as a direct inversion) in singles like the present work or in combination with other V shaped canvases. #frankstella #christies #postwar 12h

saviour_u "I blur things to make everything equally important and equally unimportant. I blur things so that they do not look artistic or craftsmanlike but technological, smooth and perfect. I blur things to make all the parts a closer fit. Perhaps I also blur out the excess of unimportant information." - Gerhard Richter #gerhardrichter #richter #christies #postwar 12h

saviour_u Richard Prince's "drink Canada Dry" joke painting lol. I read once that, Prince called the Joke paintings "what I wanted to become known for." When asked to identify the artistic genre of his Jokes, Prince responded, "the Joke paintings are abstract. Especially in Europe, if you can't speak English." #richardprince #jokepaintings #christies #postwar 16h

saviour_u One of the giants of Abstract Expressionism, Clyfford Still demonstrates the rich variety of his painting technique here. Despite the clear separation of light and dark tones, Still continually works the entire surface of his canvas, laying numerous layers of paint and scrapping them off to show the colors underneath. #clyffordstill #christies #postwar 17h

saviour_u Fun fact: both me & my father were valedictorian of the same exact high school, 30 years apart.
The fruit don't fall too far from the tree.

saviour_u David Hammons’ "man with a flag" (left) & "1989 Champ" (right) stand out in this back room of the gallery. Hammons' 1989 Champ really strikes a chord. It is impeccable and clever, beautiful and sad. The materials are simple: inner tube, (silver) duct tape, and boxing gloves (with laces hanging down). Hammons smartly mixes a deflated sport with deflated materials to examine the role of the prize fighter in American culture, especially black culture. So Hammons’ Champ feels right. There are wounds on the ‘fighter,’ a melted patch on the left side, and ‘stitches’ on the right, near the top, where the head might be. The duct tape holding the gloves to the inner tube looks old, almost inert. Like boxing, Hammons’ tired Champ won’t be coming back to life anytime soon. #davidhammons #mnuchingallery 5d

saviour_u “The shapes kept moving
Around and around until they
Could find their way with one another
Hiding and coming forward
Losing and finding
Commanding, receding
Seeking each other
As an asymmetrical dynamic balance" - Richard Pousette-Dart #richardpoisettedart #christies

saviour_u Alice Neel’s portraits reflect the different communities of Manhattan, where she lived and worked, as well as her strong left-wing social consciousness. In 1965, the year Lyndon B. Johnson decided on a radical increase of ground forces in South Vietnam, Neel met James Hunter by chance and asked him to sit for a portrait. The young man had just been drafted for the Vietnam War and was scheduled to leave within a week. Following her usual practice, Neel started to outline the body directly on the canvas and then filled in parts of the head and hands. When Hunter did not return for their second sitting, Neel declared the work complete in its unfinished state by signing it on the back. The portrait was first shown at the retrospective of the artist’s work held at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1974. #aliceneel #themetbreuer #unfinished 1w

saviour_u Number 28, 1950 belongs to Jackson Pollock's pioneering series of drip paintings. According to the artist Allan Kaprow, these works forecast a sea change in the way artists depict space, one that postpones closure and completion. With their expansive scale and decentered, nonhierarchical compositions, the drip paintings exceed their own boundaries, "going in all directions . . . , beyond the literal dimensions" of the canvas, Kaprow argued. Indeed, the four sides of any one Pollock represent merely the arbitrary termination of painterly activity. Even if Pollock stopped painting, Kaprow added, "our imaginations continue [the work] outward indefinitely, as though refusing to accept the artificiality of an 'ending.'" #JacksonPollock #themetbreuer #unfinished #pollock 1w
