Hello friends,

I was in for the last day of Steve Roden’s show and got to see Nicole Eisenman’s paintings propped against walls and cabinets in the back. Eek and wow this woman can paint. And she has a sense of humor, too. Nice touch, that.

Having only the briefest of moments with the work, and having no idea what the show will look like I’m going to let Eisenman do all the heavy lifting for this post and only upload images as my part of this post. Yes my friends I plan to cut and paste directly from Nicole Eisenman’s poster which also serves as the text for the press release. I bet you will be surprised anyway and also have a few gut laughs. You may even snort. Eisenman seems to be something of a nut.

This is all good because I still need to pack, run some errands, have dinner with Brian Getnick and talk about his Native Strategies performance project and sleep before our 6:30 AM flight to Philadelphia and the wonders there-in. I am a busy pumpkin today. Quoting from Nicole’s prose poetry:

“Nicole Eisenman

New Paintings”

(Do you know? My version of WordPress lacks an asterisk. Pretend you see an asterisk at the phrase “New Paintings.” This will lead you to the below list of possible show titles.)

(Ed. again: It finally occurred to me that I might just be able to cut and past the asterisk from another source. Takes some of us a while……. Cheers.)
