Zena Holloway’s work is beautiful. As we used to say, it will knock your socks off. Which is an odd expression. But for one who swims like a stone, this work is so graceful, sublime, and wondrous.

Not only has Richard Avedon photographed many famous people. But he has also taken some very odd pictures. All wonderful. A lot of fun and joy in his pics.

His work is fabulous. An artist with a point of view.

Edwin Georgi

The pin up girl. The fantasy of the girl next door beauty. Pulp novels and movies, melodramas are filled with her presence. She is a male ideal. Not exactly. She is an ideal captured and cultivated by the fashion, make-up, and advertising world. Almost every First Lady has looked like her. Edwin Georgi is one the artists who has made his career around her. And yet. She does not exist.

Perhaps these pics are another version of the black velvet paintings. But I’m feeling nostalgic. And I recall all these neon posters in friend’s rooms. During college. That almost glowed in the dark. And of course were drug related. The girls in these pics do seem to vibrate the colours around them. Remind me of one particular girl. Whose skin was as dark as oak marble. And whose teeth shone like snow.

I don’t know if Diana Melfi is particularly talented. But these do grab your attention.

The dramas and cliches grown out of teenage boy fantasies. Tough guys and loose women. The ones that didn’t graduate from high school and hung around the local gas station.

Robert McGinnis

31 10 2014

Robert McGinnis (born February 3, 1926)[1] is an American artist and illustrator. McGinnis is known for his illustrations of more than 1,200 paperback book covers,[2] and over 40 movie posters, including Breakfast at Tiffanys (his first film poster assignment),[3]Barbarella, and several James Bond and Matt Helm films.[4]

A lot of his work is very commercial. Cheesy to tell you the truth. But you’ve got to tip your hat to anyone who manages to make a living in any avenue of art.
