Dave Pearson is a painter and comic artist I knew in Chicago. He lived upstairs from me for years in a three flat where we'd have small art openings in our apartments. Of his three black cats, Nemo was the biggest and would climb your body to hug your face. He's one of my favorite artists, and I just got a note from him that he'd put some of his comics up online for the first time.

This is my excuse to finally go to the Hamptons after living in Brooklyn for years- Yes Gallery has a booth (my piece is the red on in the center of the page this links to) at artMRKT next weekend. I talk with Lesley at Yes this weekend to see what other pieces I'll show. I'm guessing she'll bring my book of drawings and woodblock prints with since they sold well at the Fountain Show in Miami for Art Basel, but I have no idea which other larger works she has her eye on. Me, I'd like to show this oil painting. I'm hoping that my favorite other Yes! artist, Tom Bevan, will be there with me. How fancy we would be!! artMRKT is at the Bridge Hampton Historical Society - located here: View Larger Map Continue reading

I have a show at Freddy's next week. I'm really looking forward to hearing my cousin sing Edith Piaf songs, and I'm going to try to get Wyatt in there to hear it. I'm not sure is babies are strictly forbidden, but if they are, he could just hang out right outside aand I'm sure he'll still be able to hear Liz belt it out. Here's the press release: WHAT: Freddy's Bar presents: Crows and Nudes: Paintings and drawings by E.K.

Armory weekend is here- the biggest art event of the year in NYC bringing around 80K tourists from around the world to see the newest art on the market. The main event at piers 92 & 94 spawned around 30 concurrant art events throughout the city, including the Fountain Art Fair at 25th and Lexington, where I'll be showing with Yes! Gallery. Today at Fountain the VIP doors open from 1-7 with a party immediately following at the original 1913 Armory Building. I should arrive around 5:30 at the Yes! booth where I'll have several works up. Yes! Gallery took a small selection of paintings and drawings for the Fountain Fair from my current solo show, Alé Alé (link there for press release and a slideshow of works), up in Greenpoint at 147 India running through March 18th. The Brooklyn Yes! Gallery location is on the Armory Weekend official BK... Continue reading

I've just signed on with Yes! Gallery and this will be my first time showing with them in New York after our first show in Miami during Art Basel in December. I'll be there on Friday and would love to see you for a glass of wine. Here's the write up from the gallery: Yes! Gallery is proud to present Alé Alé an exhibition featuring works by E. K. Buckley, curated by Lesley Doukhowetzky. E.K. Buckley is a figurative painter working in Brooklyn whose focus is bold, eerie nudes. Her works in oil rely on stark gestures that produce poses ranging from balletic to violent. Buckley combines the heft of unrefined mark-making with elegance, creating forms with an extreme economy of illustrated description. Her subject matter is often drawn from her early training in music and literature, and her love of dance is clear in her uncanny ability to capture... Continue reading

I replayed a conversation I had while in Bali: In Lovina, a northern coastal city in Bali for beach dwelling and not much else, I met an American woman my age vacationing from Germany with her German husband. She is half Han Chinese, half western pastiche American, and lived until the age of twelve in the Arab Emerites where her parents both had jobs. At age twelve, the cusp of puberty, she left the UAE - her mother insisted the family relocate sickened by the now constant offers she received for her prepubescent daughter with such exotic looks for marriage from licit pedos. That's not shocking. This is: She let me in on the "fact," her word, that the boys in her school were raped with regularity in the surrounding deserts. She went on. The girls were untouchable due to the monetary penalty for the rupture of a hymen. The... Continue reading

i met Moskow in Chicago where we were neighbors at the Flat Iron fine arts building about ten years ago. He's a second generation master printmaker, painter and has a small collection of videos that I love, including a great documentary of the chicago snowmageddon blizzard earlier this month. Here's his short from our visit with him last weekend. Continue reading

I'm at the Giacobetti Paul gallery- 111 Front St at Washington with the big pink sign reading GALLERY. The show is up the stairs on the main floor to your left, suite 220. There isn't a line forming yet to purchase all of the artwork, so I'll post some shots of details while I'm waiting for you to visit. I have seen a line form at an art show to buy up paintings, but only once. David Moskow of Chicago had people out the door one year in Wicker Park. I knew because my studio was next to his and I didn't have a line unless it was for the wine I'd set out. This is a detail from figures in a red field. It's hard to catch the retina of the eyes in the middle of the work, but here's a show from my cel. Continue reading
