  Anthony Lister at Lyons Wier Gallery, NYC
Australian born artist Anthony Lister is showing at the Lyons Wier Gallery in New York City from March 19 through to April 19.

A lot of my favorite artists are painters that never really give up using the pencil (line). Painterly paintings are good but so are paintings that look like drawings. I guess I like painterly drawings or linear paintings. I like painterly paintings and linear drawings too ;-)

From the Lyons Wier Gallery blog here..
"Known in the Low Brow movement for his intriguing, playful hybrid of street art, expressionism, and cubism all manifested in non-traditional media such as spray paint; Lister’s new body of work shows the tongue-in-cheek frivolity of his earlier pieces developing (or decaying) into a more mature and disturbing direction. The deformities and un-done aesthetic resolve of Lister’s work provides viewers with a concretization of contemporary societies’ psyche – or, as the artist himself states, “making the obvious more, well, obvious”."

OPENING: Fri. March 19th, 2010 6-9pm
DATES: March 19th - April 19th, 2010

  BgArt News Blog Plans
I'm really good at making lists. I'm a list person. Without lists I watch too much tv, surf the web, or read too much.

I create lists that are too ambitious as I rarely ever complete the jobs on them. Which in some ways shows the masochist in me as I know I'm setting myself up to fail, but in other ways it gets me off my fanny (I have always wanted to use the word "fanny" in a sentence as it makes me laugh. In Australia the fanny is different to what a fanny is in the US).

Here's my To Do List for BgArt News Blog this year. I figured if I published the list it would make me more likely to do it.

Anyone know of reasonably affordable blog designer that can make me a spiffy new blog and tranfer BgArt News Blog from Blogger to.. umm.. Wordpress or that other blogging platform that I can't think of right now? Perhaps I should see a logo designer first.

  5000 Nude Australians on the Sydney Opera House
Spencer Tunick has encouraged 5000 Australians to get naked and pose on the steps of the Sydney Opera House.

That's not my white bum on the bottom left of the image as I chose not to scare the locals. I'm not much of a morning person either.

From the Sydney Morning Herald.. "The official name of Tunick's installation was The Base. Yet after waiting two hours for the sun to come up, it became apparent that Blue Poles might be an appropriate title as a brisk wind hit the Opera House steps."
