“Generally, we use light—we don’t really pay much attention to light itself. That’s my interest: this fascination with light and how we come to light.”
Happy birthday today (May 6) to artist

DAILY PIC: Two images care of the punk couture show that previewed today at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York – and that I just panned on TheDailyBeast.com. In that cranky review, however, I didn’t have room to mention that, among the talentless couturier copycats of punk who dominate the show, there are also a few designers, such as Rei Kawakubo and Martin Margiela, who are genuine artistic geniuses. The thing is, I think that by including them the curators are guilty of that heinous sin that art historians call pseudomorphism: Imagining that because two artworks look the same, they also mean the same thing and play the same role in our culture. When Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook wore a Union Jack t-shirt in the late 1970s (left) his brash punk gesture meant something utterly different than when Rei Kawakubo, a Japanese intellectual, reworked the British flag (right) into runway fashion in 2006. Ditto for punk’s rebellious repurposing of junk and the Maison Martin Margiela’s thoughtful recycling of consumer goods in the fabulous Artisanal line it launched a few years ago.

Child with Toy Hand Grenade, 1962
Andy Warhol, Gold Marilyn Monroe, 1962
Things to think about when studying:
This is a silkscreen - why is this medium important to Warhol’s work?
How does Warhol undermine the public’s perception of Marilyn?
What does this work say about consumerism?

Happy birthday to the queen!
I took some flowers and a balloon to Bettie’s grave today, I was happy to see that someone else had taken her flowers as well. Bettie would have been 90 years old today.
