Painter Chris Cosnowski is showing two of his highly-realistic still life paintings in the project room at Linda Warren Gallery. The content is heavy, the subjects are silly, the brushwork is tight and the colors are bright. What’s it all add up to? Seems like there might be something a little quixotic going on here. (And that’s a compliment! Well, let’s say that could be a compliment.)

Lengthy interview with Jerome Witkin at Painting Perceptions (little late on this one, it was posted in May)
I imagine most of you have read a lot about the Marina Abramovic exhibit at MOMA, more than enough. You probably read Arthur Danto’s piece about sitting with Abramovic in the NYT last week. That essay got a lot of response from the general public, questions about the validity of the work. This week Danto answers some of those questions, in a thoughtful Q&A style entry that attempts to describe contemporary art and performance art in a way that we don’t see very often.
