THE PROBLEM WITH HOLLYWOOD

The problem with Hollywood is that most artist can not afford to work and live here, it is the sad bitter truth. Which, brings me to the subject of a opening at the MorYork Gallery. Don't ask me where it's located because I got so lost on the freeway I thought I would never find it. Well I did find it and I did see what was a mindbending, compulsive, heartbeating, over the top, I can't believe I've never been here before, art installation. And this wasn't even the artist showing. This is the home and studio of the gallery owner. I loved it, and I hope you do, too.

Kevin,
My little bohemian alter ego has been doing cartwheels looking at the great pictures of this most wondrous place. - G

Back when I was an awarded but starving artist, one of my few regrets is that I wasn't able to get involved in the L.A. art scene.

This is what I get for living out in one of the Valleys lol...

Wonderful photos, I used to have a whole collection of various animal skulls hanging from a single chain in my art studio (much to the dismay of some of the more genteel patrons ha ha).

You got lost on the freeway? Wait till I tell Chris! He still talks about how you saved the day for him and turned it all around. He thinks you are a freeway guru. I can't burst his bubble!
Now, about that amazing place. You realize the 2 of you are kindred spirits? It is sort of like a super sized version of your workshop! Oh and by the way, I took a photo of something just for you. I'll send it over later today. And lastly, thank you ever so much for the wonderful comment you left me.
Love you Hollywood Forever, Kevin!!!

Very cool. Artists have a tough time everywhere it seems. My grown daughter earns her living through her art, and struggles. Your pictures are so good too.

Mind-blowing! What was the piece in the background (looks like bubbles) made of? Many fabulously unique pieces there. Thanks for sharing it!

Hollywood forever, Kevin said...

I which all you guys had been with me to share the crazy night. LIFE IN SMALL CHUNKS, I think what you are looking at is a wall of tin can tops and bottoms. In fact anything that could hammered to a surface was covered in tin cans, including chairs and sofa. The hanging sculptures were thread spools, bottle caps, bits of metal, beads, you name it. The secret is don't throw anything away, make a sculpture.

Amazing and inspiring. How fortunate that you were able to experience such a wondrous place. He must be one interesting dude! I had friends in San Francisco who also had a weird, wild, mysterious home and it was always morphing into something more wonderful than before.
