Today, I finally found some time to work on Dick's website, rearrange chronologically the still lifes, adding a few in the process.
Since I'll be heading out to Dick's studio in the country to do a little photo and video shoot, and to breath in some fresh country air, I'm especially taken by the newly added paintings of tools of all sorts associated with art and labor.
Industry (1967) oil on linen 40'' x 50''
Chime Knife and Barking Spud (1970) oil on linen 28'' x 44''
Forest Tools (1985) oil on linen 72'' x 46''
Harvest Tools (1987) oil on linen 36'' x 48'' Andso on.
And of course the studio table...Studio Table (1996-97) oil on linen 36'' x 48''
Blogging-wise, I don't think we're ready to move on from the current topics of the nude and photography that are on Dick's mind and in his writings. Conveniently, Dick stays on the subjects in his phone calls too. I listened to a voice mail(thank you google voice!) Dick left me the other day, where he mentions another two photo related books and authors, Janet Malcolm and John Szarkowski.
I let the Wikipedia entry on Janet Malcolm be an introduction to this staff writer for the New Yorker.
John Szarkowski was best know to me as the author of several books on photography and a MoMA curator.
I'm sure Dick would have a few words to add here on both authors and their photography ideas.
