If you've been following this blog from the beginning, you know that we've been covering mostly Francis Cunningham studio work and exhibitions in our videos. However, recently we've ventured out to cover more. We started with a group exhibition at Westbeth, Grid/ Off the Grid in this video and this blog entry. We liked our readers' and viewers' reactions as well as enjoyed expanding our repertoire to covering painters Francis Cunningham enjoys. We've been inspired to do this by the tireless efforts of James Kalm aka Lornen Munk to cover NY gallery scene in video reports. You can find his ouvre as a "reporter on a bike" here and here. We can only dream to be as prolific as him, and while we can't do that, we can cover more of the unchartered territory of more traditional painting, which James Kalm sometimes covers himself.
Here is Francis Cunningham at Tenri Gallery walking through the exhibition of Simon Dinnerstein, a gifted draftsman/ painter, discussing his large scale paintings and drawings. Before you look at the video, here is his website. And below is our video report. Don't be deceived by the video's top image of Paulus Potter's painting, which is going to change in the next 24 hours, it's all about Dinnerstein!
