My Grateful Blog

Have you seen my new grateful blog? I spent a lot of last year not feeling so well I decided to make sure I was grateful for the little things in life.So, starting Jan 1 2014, I took one image a day of something little in life that I am grateful for,not objects but those little things I don’t stop to think about. The kind of things you might miss if you don’t look for it.

Cindy Sherman, from Untitled Film Stills, 1977-1980

Other artists had drawn upon popular culture, but Sherman’s strategy was new. For her the pop-culture image was not a subject (as it had been for Walker Evans) or raw material (as it had been for Andy Warhol) but a whole artistic vocabulary, ready-made. Her film stills look and function just like the real ones—those 8-by-10-inch glossies designed to lure us into a drama we find all the more compelling because we know it is not real.

In theUntitled Film Stills there are no Cleopatras, no ladies on trains, no women of a certain age. There are, of course, no men. The sixty-nine solitary heroines map a particular constellation of fictional femininity that took hold in postwar America—the period of Sherman’s youth, and the ground-zero of our contemporary mythology. In finding a form for her own sensibility, Sherman touched a sensitive nerve in the culture at large. (via)

There he comes. With two jars. One empty. One filled with black hair. He puts them on the two ends of a long, white, used cloth. There is hair on the cloth. It has been there for one year. This is the closure of a one year performance. Above the jars are candles. One candle on each jar. He…
