April is the Cruellest…
This is what April will look like . . .
Easily digestible thoroughly detestable, or:
Make your own favorite artist inspired project:
You might glue colored papers into Sister Corita Kent style shapes and write aphoristic sentences to please your soul.
You might ink intricate line patterns and blocks on graph paper in DW’s Mountebank style and affix phrases cut-out of magazines around the figures.
You might layer words upon a short film.
You might paint a neat Ellsworth Kelly-like green blob as on the cover of Sheila Heti’s Pure Colour.
You might make a book of Leanne Shapton-like images and text conflations.
You might gather pictures found at thrift / antique shops and mount them with fortune cookie fortunes affixed on the lower margin.
You might make “the easy project”—a series of atrocity exhibition pamphlets.
What I’m Reading:
“RULE SEVEN: The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.”
