A college friend was a printmaker who worked a lot with very subtle colors. I always enjoyed his work, and these colors remind me of his palette. What I was thinking about for a period today, though, is the subtlety of revealing oneself.
Tonight I listened to a curator discuss his choices for an upcoming show. Themes emerged, such as escape, celebrity, willing and witless coercion, theatricality, power and control... but also a nod to the rapid recent changes in technology that lead to the frequent display of very personal things via impersonal media.
