‘space for rent’ – a poem

Walkways rise winsomely
Where riders waged war without warning.
wrapped the webbed wire and wrought iron wholly
with willful wit and writhing rage.

one waltzes with the unworldly swagger of a lover
once regular
run of the mill
routine
now radical, wonderful, wondrous.

once in a while
riders on rails rush past walkers,
risk spoke workings
wielding, quaking, wobbling.

weak in the knees while watching waves; edging on woozy
bewildered by surroundings
westward windows yawn
wind wreaks of sweaty hogs

reflections rippling
peaks reached
relief
-yet wisening

winter waits in the wings
disguised in a wig
who once rivaled the juvenile
jeering down under the wretched overpass
“you wilting wanker!”

what a relief – Wythe waxes,
when weakened, welt ridden tread,
taken out by two and a half hours
on a strung out ramble.

notes from doc: The Cool School


I just watched the documentary “The Cool School” which expounds on the formative years of the Los Angeles Art scene. In the fifties and sixties small gallery groups banded together to have a go of it, attempting to make a mark without obtaining notoriety from New York to validate their efforts. The doc primarily follows the group connected with Ferus Gallery, it’s inception and diffusion.

Notable Artists: craig kauffman, robert irwin, john altoon, peter voulkos, ken price, john mason, wallace berman, ed moses, ed keinholtz, bill al bengston, craig kauffman, ed ruscha, larry bell

Driving forces of FERUS: irving bulm (blum/poe), the late walter hopps (pasadena art museum), supported by shirley neilson hopps.

Other Notes:

barney’s beanery tavern

1950s male driven art
MACHO art
about control
their struggle to find power over something in their lives resulted in a power in their art and in their personalities.

frank gehry – fit in more with them than the architecture crowd.

bill claxton – photographer

don factor – collector

Blum broke out a few NY POP artists: jons, stella, liectenstein, warhol

hal gluckman – curator

by the late 60s things became more elite and lucrative and in a stronghold of what ferrous gallery put into motion
everyone grew-up
