On my wish list: Cont, containers-vase in natural stone by Michael Verheyden.
Always thinking about my hair. Some part of me just want to have it clean and simple. The other side get’s really bored. I feel like I need something new, again. Sadly I have to wait until the end of December.
Julie Mehretu at White Cube in London.
“Mehretu’s points of departure are architecture and the city, particularly the accelerated, compressed and densely populated urban environments of the 21st Century. Her canvases overlay different architectural features such as columns, façades and porticoes with geographical schema such as charts, building plans and city maps and architectural renderings, seen from multiple perspectives, at once aerial, cross-section and isometric. Her paintings present a tornado of visual incident where gridded cities become fluid and flattened, like many layers of urban graffiti. Mehretu has described her rich canvases as “story maps of no location”, seeing them as pictures into an imagined, rather than actual reality. Through its cacophony of marks, her work seems to represent the speed of the modern city depicted, conversely, with the time-aged materials of pencil and paint.”
