The first time I went through the Papal Apartments I had 2 results. First, my neck hurt from looking up at all the work on the ceilings. Second, my eyes hurt because there was no relief from the paintings. They were everywhere. There was no place for the eyes to rest. It was an orgy of visual images. And though it was great art, it made me want to vomit. Out of my eyes. And thats how I see Luis Toledo’s work. I can’t make a judgment on it because there is no relief from it in his work. There is no focal point. I get some kind of aesthetic vertigo.

And on a completely different note. Here’s another Luis Toledo playing a french horn. A blast from the past. It is very entertaining.

It is always fun to watch kids making art. First of all they are very intense. And they for the most part like to talk to their neighbours (like a sewing circle). Its like they have 2 brains. Oh ya, that’s multitasking. Some pick colours that have to be exact. The sun must be yellow. Others pick colours randomly. But what they all seem to do is fill in every space on the page. White is the enemy. And that’s what bothers me about Mr. Toledo’s work. Not just him but a lot of digital artists. They have a lot of interesting ideas but they insist on putting them all on the same page.
