Of Light and Dark And Mystery

Art

There is something comfortable, reassuring about Eric Forstmann’s unassuming realism. This master of paint gives you what he sees — Forstmann never paints from memory or photographs — filtered through a self-deprecating, almost shy sensibility. He handles paint in a way not seen often these days, often traceable to the American trompe l’oeil tradition or to the disembodied, haunting flatness of Edward Hopper. In either case, these pictures are the sum of amazing attention to light.

A Photographing Life

Art

It is a modest nude compared to many of Edward Weston’s: Charis Wilson, Weston’s lover, face down in the sand, legs stretched out, from a series of shots taken in California one sunny afternoon in 1936. It caught Jack Feder’s attention. To this graduate student, it was the most beautiful thing he ever saw. 

“That inspired me.”

The Dunlops: Merging Art And Theater

Art

It was the Max and David show at Lakeville's White Gallery: snappy patter, big moves, color, charm, all of this garlanded by riffs on Picasso, Rembrandt, Innes, Gombrich, Frost, Spinoza, Mingus, Debussy, Bach and references to science, philosophy, creativity. David Dunlop is more voluble than his son, Max, but Max is still young. He's picking it up nicely.

Photo Gallery

Mark Niedhammer found this bald-faced hornet, since removed, at the mini golf course in Canaan. He photographed it with his Leica D-Lux 4 from a distance of about 6 feet. He said it took a root beer float to calm him down after photographing this aggressive insect.

Partners Prevail

Art

Partnership seems to be in the autumn air, at least at two current art shows. First came the Dunlops, father and son, whose collaborative paintings are on display at The White Gallery in Lakeville, CT. Now at the D. M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, CT, Shaari Horowitz and Alistair Jones are exhibiting work in a show they call Partners: Oil Paintings and Fine Furniture from a Happy Marriage.

Art

The Word From Cartoon Mountain

Art and Wit

I’m talking by phone to the legendary cartoon editor of the legendary New Yorker: Bob Mankoff.

“The only place to go is down,” he cracks wise about being at the pinnacle of Cartoon Mountain. It’s Rosh Hashana and we’re celebrating the New Year — or at least I am — by chatting on the phone. I recognize the accent: pure born-in-the-Bronx-raised-in-Queens-heavily-influenced-by-Yiddish-Jewish kid.
