Marina Abramović, "Truck Accident (I)", 1963, oil on canvas, 150x170 cm Courtesy of Marina Abramović Archives
Even for Marina Abramović, it all began with painting. When she was 14, in 1960, she asked for, and got, her first set of paints. At the same time, she also received her first painting lesson from the artist Filo Filipović, one of her father's old partisan friend. The motif, in this painting, is remarkably weird: crashing trucks. Not just cars, but trucks. A good, profane "povera" subject for a painting in the '60, in which what collides is neither mythological figures nor the armies and heroes of warring nations, advancing from either side of the canvas and clashing in the middle.
The syle is expressive, the brushwork loose and vibrant, unlike the clouds, which are rendered in a more Magritte-like clarity. The pictorial space is almost flat, the subject surrounded by grey paint instead of the Belgrade cityscapes. The collision is thus isolated, cut off from any context and nothing explains the "before and the "after". Without explanatory reference, two bodies collide head-on, exerting force on each other.
That is all ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

GEORGE CONDO, Mythological Figures, recently acquired in LOUISIANA MUSEUM collection ✨💙
I’m generally not a big fan of #georgecondo, but this large canvas recently acquired by #louisianamuseum has such intriguing complexity in the figure, and brightness of colors which make it a true #masterpiece
"I describe what I do as psychological cubism. Picasso painted a violin from four different perspectives at one moment. I do the same with psychological states. Four of them can occur simultaneously. Like glimpsing a bus with one passenger howling over a joke they're hearing down the phone, someone else asleep, someone else crying – I'll put them all in one face."
Graduated in Massachusetts and member of the band The Girls during the late 70s, #condo moved to #newyork with the suggestion of #jeanmichelbasquiat. After a short period working in #Warhol ‘ Factory, He made his way starting with exhibitions in the #eastvillage Galleries in the mid 80s, first championed by pioneering dealer De Land, and having simultaneous shows with Gladstone in 1984 and 1985. He soon went on to very large works, in what he called “artificial realism”: realistic paintings of artificial objects, resulting from a intelligently blending of references,from Old Masters to contemporary #americanculture, as well as a clear echo of artist as #picasso and #dekooning. His eccentric characters are progressively desegregated in several level, exploring the furthest extremes of the human #psyche .
This work is currently included with the second one in “WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?- Works from the Louisiana Collection (24.5.2019 - 18.8.2019) A

The past month has been a blur but it is good to know that even when traveling or juggling too many things (standard) that ideas still percolate through. •
Back at the start of June I was in Copenhagen for a wedding and made time to go up the coast to the Louisiana. Incredible space with some cracking work. Here is my favourite: Poul Gernes.
