Glitter & Doom
Last Sunday we went to do see the Glitter and Doom exhibit at the Met. It was really amazing. The work was so intense and visceral it nearly leapt off the walls. it was astonishing -to me anyway – that paints could be so emotional, vivid and passionate. There are some images from the show online here.
One piece that I found exciting was George Grosz’s I Will Eliminate All Who Do Not Consider Me Master.
Partially I was blown away by the audacity of the title and partly I just enjoyed the drawing. My companion noted that it was interesting how so much of the work seemed to prefigure Graphic Novels. Any art historians out there know of a correlation?
Anyway it is a great exhibit and you should check it out.
