Josh Smith

Gives me a kick. He's made a career out of painting his name "Josh Smith", and there's been a lot of words spoken as to the merits of that. Personally I think it's a hoot (in a good way). Am looking forward to seeing how far he can take it. Some of his work is really good and there's the odd masterpiece now and then. But mostly I enjoy the fact that he constructs his paintings using 2 words - that's his oeuvre, and he's stickin' to it !
He's well represented at Galerie Catherine Bastide in Brussels and you really should check out the slide show of his work at Luhring Augustine in NYC. here's more pics at Standard in Olso.
