Do this thing

Posted by on January 26 at 11:59 AM

There’s a talk tonight at Winston Wächter from 6 to 7:30, hosted by Henry curator Liz Brown with the artists Brian Murphy and Susan Dory. Dory makes elegant layered fields of smooth, elongated ovals of acrylic color on canvas stretched over panel, and I have no idea whether a talk with her will be interesting. But since Murphy makes art from his own body—he is the fat man in his pinkish, monumental, nude self-portraits in watercolor—I’m dying to hear how he talks about such personal work.

maybe you'll write about it?

Indeed I may. Depends on whether anything interesting happens, or whether I'm a voyeuristic jerk for expecting something interesting from a fat man who paints himself naked.

I say write about it either way. I'm curious/lazy.
