One Dollar, Two

2-wells-fargo-criticism-may-16-2012-2

This is a mad-capped, in-the-tradition-of-modern-art depiction of a notice I received from my bank, Wells Fargo, telling me that my account had, imagine, been inexplicably compromised, but through the bank’s humble, heroic and unremunerated efforts, no one was able to pilfer from me the $4.27 I keep in my checking account, so that I might feel secure.

Ah, Newspaper Stands, I Remember Them Well 4.

In 1966, at 6 a.m. in the morning (sic), Jimmy Day and I used to deliver The Washington Post newspapers to the residents of the McLean Gardens Apartments over there at Van Ness Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Tenleytown upper-Northwest Washington D.C. USA.  There were paper boys in the day.  Perhaps there still are paperboys, but I never see them.  There were also boys shouting out the latest headlines as they sold newspapers on street corners of New York City.  Maybe there are boys who still do this, (but I haven’t been to New York City in a decade or two).  And there were, and are, newspaper stands on the streets.
We are not going to be seeing these things much longer, as much as we might long for and love and adore the past.  So I thought I would try to memorialize newspaper stands, and maybe newspapers too, in art.
I am posting four pictures.  Each of them is the same shot I took of some newspaper stands I came across on the main street in Bethany Beach Delaware USA, at 9 or 10 a.m. in the morning (sic), on July 3 2012.
I edited the picture in four different ways.  I was trying to get them to look like modern art drawings, maybe modern art paintings.  They remind me of the work of some modernist, but I can’t figure who.  Do they remind you of some artist?

Mark Rothko PhD 3.

I am doing a series, maybe 6 or 7, of photographs inspired by the late wonderful and great abstract expressionist Mark Rothko. This is the third.
I think this is a picture of a giant HD TV, intentionally blurred a bit to give it that Rothko feel.
