this feature gallery artist went to peru and studied/ingested ayahuasca, and did this body of work

"Long has Jesse Bransford been gleaning archaic and peripheral cultures for their icons, signs, and remnants of their deep, in search of being privy to the cosmic passage of the essence that endures, and sharing it. One such recent investigation has been that of the psychotropic ayahuasca experience as guided by Norma, an Amazonian curandero (healer, shaman). The culture, plant(s) and their properties, as well as the experiences and its repercussions are chronicled in these recent works on paper."

I like his older wook too as I love the old books on Alchemy

RIP Kenneth Noland.

"When he was good, he was excellent" - are obits really the place for critics to get in their final digs? (Roberta Smith on Noland)

"Perhaps to his detriment, Mr. Noland was ardently loyal to his formalist principles" (another unelaborated Smith stab)


preliminary obit (presumably full libeling of the deceased to follow)


(edited to be less partisan-seeming--I think it is possible to like Noland without subscribing to any "formalist principles"--in fact I doubt he had them)
