A long, musical tribute to Jackson Pollock’s drip technique.
I love it, for I find it wonderfully epic and delightful.
Whereas Feldman’s work had a harsh quality, Ridgway creates a nice, laid back atmosphere. As of this entry, I am going to temporarily stop posting Ridgway videos so I can focus on other subjects.
So far, I enjoy Ridgway’s work. While he creates nice, relaxing Jazz instrumentals, I prefer it when he goes into more offbeat territories.
Fascinating how the music imitates Pollock’s drip style.
Back into the familiar trippy Jazz style. On Kline, I really have no opinion on his work. When it comes to black paint designs, I think I prefer Robert Motherwell.
Probably my favorite song from Mr. Ridgway. With Richter’s paintings, he and other musicians set up a wonderfully nasty atmosphere. At one part of the song, I imagined the instrument playing resembling Richter applying paint to his canvases.
Another artist I never much cared for when I first encountered his work, but I am now changing my mind because of Mr. Ridgway’s Jazz collaborations with Randall Colbourne. I love the way Twombly manipulates lines as creates these wonderful designs and people in some of these drawings. I still do not like some of his work, but now that I have seen more of what he can do? I appreciate his talent more, especially what I can interpret from his work. Sometimes his work resembles landscapes full of plant life, other times they resemble waves crashing on a beach.
The last photo surprised me at how large and expansive a painting Twombly could create. I think I need to see them in person.
The song gives Klee’s art this sinister edge that I enjoy a lot.
An okay song, but it feels a little out-of-place next to the (very lovely and striking) photography of Stieglitz. The drums in the back felt very 90s.
