Saturday and Sunday

If you are in NY, go visit the Met's borrowed Vermeer. It's astonishing. And then run upstairs and play with Roxy Paine's tangled up metallic tree roots and limbs.

Kadinsky at the Guggenhiem is interesting but I feel heretical in saying that I was happiest in the room full of his watercolor. As Peter Fiore pointed out (when I asked why on facebook,) the watercolors are much more radiant. I was also surprised to see two examples of very early, much more illustrative, works to fall in love with.
