Edna on todays influential Artists
had a nice interview
and named her favoured artists:
EM: Who do you think are the most influential artist's today?
EVH: . Gerhard Richter is practically taken intravenously. Duchamp, Eva Hesse, and Andy Warhol are always in the air. Also Luc Tuymans, Neo Rauch, Jessica Stockholder, and Robert Rauschenberg. Dana Schutz is very important to younger painters. Why isn't she in the Whitney Biennial? If they'd added Schutz, they could have had 30 female artists out of 101!
What do I think of those ?Gerhard Richter
was a star for me, but most with the diaries, he wrote. Some of his paintings I find very fast aging, some do not touch me anymore, what f.e. not happens with all the Max Beckmann's. But very important are as I think
a) the Mirrors
b) the grey paintings
c) the color chart paintings
all his abstract work and the still lifes are great. Yes, he is a very important artist of the 20th century, indeed. Sort of Beethoven. See his work hereDuchamp
. Yes.Eva Hesse
. I don't know. Sort of Eva Plath
for Artists. Maybe I prefer Georgia O'Keeffe
and Lee MillerAndy Warhol
. Made some good statements and Brillo, but for the rest it's to me big, loud and flat.Luc Tuymans
. Bad paintings, no risk. Boring.Neo Rauch
. Good for collectors and for Judy. You know, what you get. Some Paintings reveal their silliness after a while.Jessica Stockholder
: Seems interesting, maybe I saw that on Art Berlin last year ?Robert Rauschenberg
: Me, as a younger of german expressionists, does not touch his art at all. I find it pretty sloppy.Dana Schutz
? I dont think her paintings are much different as Tuyman's, just another direction.
Edna, maybe its time for some new discoveries ?
But, what I liked lately, and much thanks to the artbloggers is:Rachel Feinstein
