Free Modern Art

I moved my car out of the garage this morning to make some space to prep a wallpaper installation that I was doing. When I walked back into the garage, I noticed this abstract painting sitting right below where the leaking differential of my car used to be.

I hadn’t noticed it before, even though I had painted it just 12 hours earlier while turning a red, white, and blue bowling wrist brace into a black one in the course of assembling my Dick the Albino Bowler costume (thanks Ken), in preparation for attending Scott, Becky and Felix’s phenomenal fancy dress party.

Let me just say, this was far and away the best family-friendly halloween party that I have ever been to. Scott and Becky know how to entertain. Costumes were manditory, and there were some incredible ones there. Frylock and Pumpkin guts stand out in my mind. There was the best haunted carport you could imagine, complete with human barbecue and living portrait. There was a forest of booze bottles and mixers available to concoct whatever you might want to drink. There was even a performance by a Polynesian fire-dancer, swinging balls-o-fire on the end of strings. There was pinball, pumpkins, and spread of food that kept everyone going all night, and to top it all off, The Mercury Four showed up, opening their instrumental set with “Warewolf on Wheels”. All of this set in an architect-designed, mid-century modern house.

Like I said, Scott and Becky know how to throw a party.

Oh, yeah. Free modern art. I will mail this piece free of charge to the person gives the best critique of the painting, and seems to sincerely want to own it. If nobody meets those criteria, then I will put it back underneath my car.

    This is off topic, perhaps, but how do you reconcile these two phrases, clipped from the same paragraph: “the best family-friendly halloween party that I have ever been to,” and, “There was a forest of booze bottles and mixers available…” ?

    steve says:

    Well, there were lots of families there, and they were all quite friendly. As far as I could tell, no children were given any alcohol.

    Alas, I forgot my camera and didn’t get any pictures of the costumes.

    Also, yes, please some Dick the bowler pics…

  3. Terry Says:

    An aspiring Miro, Lodefink’s use of a prairie palette reminds one of the Spanish countryside. The imposition of the atypical, yet not out of place hacienda in the foreground speaks directly to the artist’s obsession with refining his own home.

    Relying largely on a postmodern, random media technique, Lodefink still manages to space elements with strong balance and the clear hint of a sense of humour. The surprising use of stencils is at first a shock, but on reflection adds a striking completeness to the piece not normally found in postmodern works of this vintage.

    Folks, the time to acquire Lodefink is yesterday. Prices, no doubt, will rise quickly for the work of this genius in the making.

    Terry,

    Let me know where you would like me to ship the painting.

  5. Knowing Art PJ Says:

    The bottom prongs of the central shape demonstrate a falling, rising notan effect. Like a Jackson Pollock, it was probably painted on the ground in a hurry, under the influence of paint fumes and party punch. The primary folds of the cardboard provide an instant vertical and horizontal, locking the picture-plane to the perimeter. The folds suggest that the artist was looking to crop the lower-right section, then determined that the picture was better off as a readymade found object.

    The cardboard has acid in it and will deteriorate quickly. A good frame job could preserve it for a while though.

    I just happened on your cardboard piece online and am using it in my myspace . I love this. It’s well balanced and so perfect I almost cried. I know…weird. Man people try a lifetime to arrive at something so fabulous. Wish you’d sent it to me. I’m a little late though. Adrian
