9"x18"x4", plaster and electrical wire, 2009
I'll be posting some of his drawings soon as well. Stankiewicz's work is understated and profound. Sometimes it is reserved, but with an underlying nervous tension that makes it feel mysteriously pregnant with a strange energy. It can be somber yet feel oddly humorous. You want to laugh the kind of laugh that you worry might be inappropriate - but you just can't help yourself. There's a distinct honesty about the work that I've always admired and an originality that has always inspired me.

Pieter Van den Dorpe
Abstract Spatial Configuration
(rendered with kerkythea)
Link to Pieter's site here
and his blog here
I'm constantly amazed and delighted to find how many interests I have in common with certain architects - of course my way of going about things is rudimentary and blunt by comparison - the work they are doing is extremely compelling and exciting to me
Pieter Van der Dorpe is on of those architects

here's what he wrote back:
"We can rebuild Bigfoot--we have the technology . . ."
Bionic Bigfoot, the spinoff that never was. Indeed, as a cover, he'd be traveling the country hauling freight in a Peterbilt. He'd be hiding in plain sight, with only children, kindly old folks and the pure at heart recognizing that "Bionic Bigfoot" was more than just a clever CB handle for an "ex-sideshow performer". It was a stamp of justice and abiding love across the land. And in the hearts of those who'd call him friend.
Inspite of a huge advance printing of 10,000 t-shirts bearing a likeness of the truck driving Sasquatch on his CB (and the words, "This is Bionic Bigfoot, c'mon!"), the studio heads did not prove to be such good buddies to the project and ashcanned the whole thing.
Word is that somewhere in some warehouse in LA there are boxes and boxes of those t-shirts and other long-suppressed-then-forgotten merch related to the silicon Sasquatch. Which is a cool legend and all, but I don't think I buy it. I'm going to have to see a picture . . .
(There are also many conspiracy theories associated with this stillborn TV show, one tying into the death--some say assassination--of Dale E[a]rnhardt. But such things are mostly whispered in darkened hallways and go well beyond my personal knowledge or that of my email spellchecker.)

March 13 - May 2, 2009
artistsAdam Baumgold Gallery presents the exhibition "About Face" from March 13 through May 2, 2009. The exhibition will explore different approaches in portraits in a diverse range of styles, through paintings and drawings by 37 Contemporary and 20th Century artists. The artists included in the exhibition are: John Ahearn, Donald Baechler, Marc Bell, Bette Blank, John Borowicz, Joe Brainard, Charles Burns, George Condo, Chuck Close, Felipe Jesus Consalvos, Jules Feiffer, Dan Fischer, Arnold Friedman, Renee French, Jessica Gandolf, Madge Gill, Jacob El Hanani, Peter Heinemann, Amy Hill, Alex Katz, Khalif Kelly, Hiroshi Kimura, Tala Madani, Ruth Marten, Sarah McEneaney, Jim Nutt, Erik Parker, Pablo Picasso, Huston Ripley, Cindy Sherman, Saul Steinberg, Robin Tewes, Jim Torok, Anton van Dalen, Karl Wirsum, Alexi Worth, and Ray Yoshida.
artistsSome featured works included in the exhibition are Pablo Picasso's emblematic graphite drawing "Tete de Femme," 1965, depicting a multi viewed fragmented face; Chuck Close's "Chris," 1974 - an ink and graphite drawing that has been gridded out to show Close's precision and unique aesthetic structure and strategy in rendering images; Charles Burns' deadpan "Before and After," 2000, ink drawings from "Black Hole" that reveal the dual feelings of normalcy and creepiness; Tala Madani's painting "Bubble Touch," 2006 features two faces in profile in a strange bubble blowing/popping ritual executed with the artist's distinctive buttery paint surface; Amy Hill's "Young Woman in Denim," 2009 is a contemporary portrait painting juxtaposed within a Renaissance landscape background; Carl Wirsum's frontal, acrylic on acetate portraits from the 1977 "Alien Passport Photo" series have a quirky, sharply delineated graphic punch; Alex Katz's "Self Portrait," a painting from 1982, features the neatly dressed artist head-on, without any artifice, props or irony. Marie Laurencin's "Self Portrait," 1929- is a painting that shows the artist in the palest of skin tones and reveals a distance and lack of emotion, like the young ballet nymphettes that she painted throughout her career.
