美國請

Georgia O’Keeffe

Leben und Werk
3. February 2012 – 13. May 2012
Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung

前些日子與一位「人間相間是何年」的高中同窗終於在慕尼黑聚首,她風塵僕僕從美東飛到柏林、再趕火車來跟我吃新疆菜,我心底自是萬分的感激。我倆在高中同班兩年,各隸屬不同團體,平常幾乎沒有往來;偶爾會傳傳唐詩宋詞組成的花間紙條,或是突然嘆一句「噯,妳真像史湘雲」── 總之是很神交的情分。都快十年沒見這才問起妳為什麼去美東、妳又怎麼來了德國?

席散之前她誠摯地邀請我去美國,回了她我想啊,我想去看歐姬芙的畫、還有她畫中的新墨西哥。當下她應該被我這種無俚頭的回答楞傻了吧,妳怎麼不是先答紐約?

這真的是我最最最想看到的美國啊。

總之這段小插曲讓我回想起2012年在 Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung 看過的展,今天正好見畫冊只要十歐,乾脆買下,也把當時筆記翻出來回味、整理分享。有趣的是,事隔兩年,喜歡的作品也與當初不同了。歐姬芙的畫大部分都被保存在美國,歐陸幾不可見;2012時是第一次的歐洲巡迴大展,主要75幅畫與50張與相關照片由聖大菲的歐姬芙美術館 (Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe) 借出,巡迴羅馬、慕尼黑與赫爾辛基。 181 more words

Photography

“Let me here call attention to one of the most universally popular mistakes that have to do with photography – that of classing supposedly excellent work as professional, and using the term amateur to convey the idea of immature productions and to excuse atrociously poor photographs.

Mucking Around

Light Coming on the Plains II, 1917

Dear Georgia or Ms. O’Keeffe,

I’m not sure which to call you. Georgia seems too intimate but Ms. O’Keeffe too scholarly. 622 more words

That's going to be a hell of a nose
