A JUNQUI HOT PICK:
ROSSON CROW BOWERY BOYS
Rosson is a history painter, or rather a very exciting update to a history painter. She is a “site specific painter” in the sense that she travels to and often lives for an extended time in the city she plans to make an exhibition in. For Bowery Boys Rosson lived in the city for six months, researching the 1880s Bowery scene, the 1980s downtown scene, and today’s artists connection to and deviation from those precedents, in search of what makes right now so unique.
Rosson seeks to explore how “bad boys”—or lets say renegade illegal activity of either gender I suppose—have shaped the cultural history of New York, and also how the idea of “the bad boy” influences both the recent and current art scene as it gets made into art history. How has the spirit of illegality and rebellious youth shaped our experience of the city today? Gangs, graffiti, gays, drugs and illicit sex are part of the city’s spirit, the vitality of the streets, but also form a big part of the art world today. How has the New Yorker’s love for this spirit shaped recent art history and influenced the young practitioners of its tradition?- excerpt from Bowery Flash by Kathy Grayson
For the first posting for 2011 I’d like to introduce you all to Jacinta Calzada. Calzada’s words flow through your ears, circle and explore your mind, travel through every vein of your body and find a home in your heart. Enjoy!
Love, Sex, and Solitude
A perfect world entrapped in this robust vision of life
Pressures on, a woman scorn
Frustration that flows from the lead of my pencil, to the heart of the lines of a single piece of paper
A soothing touch that secures my heart
An infatuation with pleasure where your man hood stimulates me physically and helps me reach an intense climax
that leaves me yearning for more
Not thinking of the repercussion of conception
My time to rhyme and find, find the me that deserves to love and be loved
A deep connection into my perfect world
Let me take you on an odyssey of my intense being
Seeing what I see, bleeding tears how I bleed
Long days, lonely nights, and inadequate satisfaction
Three entities that are a fraction of my perfect world; love, sex, and solitude
A universal equation that supports all formulas- Jacinta Calzada
