I went up to the big shitty this past weekend and despite all of my hate and anxiety for it, I had a wonderful time. Took my girlfriend around and went to a number of gallery shows in midtown. David Byrne at Pace Macgill provided some comic relief, new work from Raushenberg at Pace Wildenstein was hit or miss, and a remarkably boring show of Robert Polidori's Chernoybl photographs at Edwynn Houk. Polidori is amazing for creating an enormous slick production and creating a type of visual anesthesia about something you really should be caring about. On that day neither Raushenberg's $800,000 paintings and Polidori's $20,000 giant color photographs of death and destruction were not nearly as delightful, intriguing, heartfelt and compelling as was a strange quiet show of paintings of strange somber creatures, akin to Maurice Sendak with a street edge. This was a show by California artist Deth P. Sun and its showing at the Giant Robot Gallery next to the Giant Robot store.
