    A Coming to Shore

    January 30, 2023

    Loren Connors' fantastic "A Coming to Shore" gallery exhibit is now open at Blank Forms through March 25 at the Brooklyn gallery. Seven recent large- and small-scale works are on display. 

    "Much like his guitar playing, Connors’s visual works are always slowly transforming: when he runs out of canvas space, the artist paints over 'finished' pieces and starts again, this ritualistic layering contributing to what Aki Onda has described as their 'mystical quality.' Diagnosed with Parkinsons in 1991, Connors’s strength and range of movement are in decline, yet he paints every afternoon, committed to visualizing the intangible. The works on view 'have the feeling of horizon, but not all of them depict horizons,' Connors has said. With gestural swathes of black, gray, yellow, and green, the paintings in 'A Coming to Shore' limn boundaries, the spaces between what is 'beneath, behind, above, below, and within' which have occupied Connors for nearly half a century." — Blank Forms

    Out today: Alan Licht's "Jump" single -- or we should say, his American Primitive interpretation of Van Halen's number 1 hit from 1984.

    This single is the rollout to the physical and amped up version of Licht's collection Three Chords and a Sword: Solo Cover Versions 1988​-​2021 - first self-released digitally last year. Now, as a CD it features two bonus covers: Stooges' "1970" and an insert with a text-based version of Alvin Lucier's "I Am Sitting In A Room” generated by artificial intelligence.
