letter kiss

art things.

artwork by caio fonseca
pietrasanta painting p96.10
gouache on paper

i've been slooooooowly watching the 'art city' dvds, and forgot just how much i like caio fonseca. this series offers a glimpse into many artist's minds and archive that should not be missed by any art lover. agnes martin made me cry..her words fill me with such calm. she said all the things i think most artists believe, but don't necessarily know how to verbalize.

although this documentary is 10 years old, and some of the artists are no longer with us, the topics are still fresh - the hunger to make it in the art world, still sexy.
