I like that Picabia fellow. Keep these coming.

More Friedrich: Monk By The Sea. He beat David Bowie to it.

'SPLATCH', Sunamori, 2006

I can't quite describe why I like this one so much. It's got a very haunting quality.

More Friedrich: The Chasseur In The Forest. French soldier looking lost and insignificant, a clear reference to the expulsion of Napoleon's occupying troops from "Germany". Germans like their forests.

Reminds me of Altdorfer's much earlier, ahead of its time St George:

I saw the Zaha Hadid show at The Design Museum the other day. It absolutely blew my head off. She's the ultimate artist-architect, but she's proved that cliche about her work being great on paper but 'unbuildable' to be completely wrong. I'm so excited that she's doing the swimming pool pavillion for London 2012. But what I'm most excited about is her Guangzhou Opera House, which is close to completion. My wife's family are from Guangzhou, so we're going to go over there and see it at some point in the next couple of years.

Exhibition info here.

I'd agree with ME on this one. There is something in the expression the artist has portrayed in the half-glimpsed eyes of the subject, a disdainful, dismissive lack of compassion towards the person she is despatching, that betrays somehow the emotional torment that is welling up inside as she carries out what must be a necessary but still desperate act.

All that, and what a fantastic set of knockers.

I went to this Roy Liechtenstein exhibition in Paris on Saturday. There was lots of stuff of his that I'd never seen before, such as this TinTin :

this :

and this :

which I've now got on a mug. (Except for the Spanish bit at the bottom.)

Lichtenstein is great. I went to the exhibition at the Hayward a couple of years ago and bought a copy of this one:

I don't dislike Lichtenstein, but there's something that niggles me about it. For my money, a blown up panel of a Jack Kirby comic strip would generally be more interesting. I don't find that he's really doing much with the comic panel idea other than sticking one in a frame. That on its own is fairly arresting, I'll grant you, but there's not a whole lot else going on, for me.

In that case I'd recommend the exhibition that I went to see. There was very little, if any, of the standard stuff, and it included a number of his original sketches, so you could see how things came about. Trouble is the book to go with it is in French...

Heading home from the South bank last night, like Pants I was blown away by the Gormley figures that are dotted around the skyline ("Event Horizon"). It's astonishingly eerie, you glance in any direction and you'll see a pinprick figure on a distant building.

You need to see it in person, really, but this picture gives some impression-  -

Zaha Fucking Hadid. Oh look, I designed a building that no-one can build! How ahead of my time am I! No, architects are supposed to design buildings that people can build You want to meet an architect who's an artist. How about this mediocrity then?

I have a personal reason for disliking her which may be operative in my opinion here.

What SSS said about Lichtenstein, exactly. Can I blow up Herge and put him in a gallery? I know I can put a urinal in a gallery if I want, but I like Herge more than Lichtenstein.

This is in the Palmer Art Museum at PSU, about five blocks from the house I grew up in. As a kid, I always found this one to be sort of spooky.
