Cloud Nine @ The Front Room in Brooklyn

May 4th, 2012 • Paul H-O
Cloud Nine

Art by J. Fiber, close up, ink on paper. Cloud Nine is open until May 13

Anyway, I was at this opening (I'll have to borrow someone's snap since I didn't take any of the opening) and this show is called CLOUD NINE and it's at this Billyburg gallery, The Front Room, and it's crowded as shit, hot, the beers gone and I get introduced to this artist, Disney Nasa Borg, (?), and he's a surfer but he looks like he's from Road Warrior. So we're gabbin' about cold water when this angry little thing in glasses places herself in the middle of us, like a ref, looks up and says "excuse me but can I see the art?" and bulldozes her way to the big life size collage of a naked fat dude in a room encrusted with fast food wrappers. (by Cham Giobbi) She was a pisser that one. Why at an opening that is so damn crowded in a small room? It's not like I haven't seen it before but there is that simmering aggression of the desperate under appreciated artist that flowers in unlikely places. I appreciate her segway - so I went to the show the next day when the gallery was relatively quiet.

Art Net: The Life and Times of Walter Robinson by Andrew Russeth, The Observer

January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O
timothy_greenfield-sanders_1985
New feature on the wily and wooly star of GalleryBeat Television, the artist, critic, editor of artnet.com magazine. Walter has been a good friend since 1988 and this is a very complex matrix of sources. The article itself reminds me a good cubist painting, like a Braque, an image I wouldn't expect at all. I may change my mind, but for now I'm happy that comprehensive attention is being paid to the eminent Walter (Mike) Robinson.

Classic GBTV Seedy Television, Beautiful People

January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O
Episode 75 Part 3 of 3 (a really wonderful moment with missed Pat Hearn, Kristin Bowler in the bumper, fun) A long time ago, in the distant year 1994, an art fair started by medium sized art dealers Pat Hearn, Colin De Land, and Lisa Spellman started an art fair in the the historically seedy Gramercy Hotel. That is it I can't repeat it. It's all in 2 and 3.

The Mercer Street Medical Case (v1 part 1) 3:40

November 7th, 2011 • Paul H-O

Popular Doctor for New York's Creative Community Gets Booted by Greedy Landlord

My version of Dr. House is real. New documentary at square two is in reality in pre-production, a drama with 27 hours of real-time video about Dr. Daryl Isaacs, the uniquely brilliant and prolific internist, gives me his story of the struggle with the American medical establishment fix - all specialists and no GP's. He demonstrates in check form the insanity of "for profit health insurance' companies", Isaacs' massive patient load, and the surprising facts behind his inclusion in the hit film - SUPERSIZE ME, by then documentary director, Morgan Spurlock.


The Mercer Street Medical Case begins as a New York real estate nightmare, because Daryl Isaacs loses the lease on his medical practice and must move by the end of May. It was April and I began shooting the  more »

Flesh of the Machine > Artist Sono Osato

October 20th, 2011 • Paul H-O
Uploaded by filmlikefilms on Oct 14, 2011 Sono Osato, artist. This is a short studio visit and taping I did during the 2011 Dumbo Festival in late September. It's fascinating to see the array of old manual typewriters and calculators that are gutted to create buoyant metal core mixed media assemblage, along with new paintings that incorporate some metal elements but conveys her deep involvement with the roots of visual language in a passionate freeform style that I would describe as "beautifully beyond". It's the here and now but the history of how visual language can seem like a slow volcanic eruption. Sono has shown her work extensively on the West Coast and is represented by The Brian Gross Gallery in San Francisco.  more »
