An announcement was made last week that a new $225 million project will be built in the Uptown section of Dallas, and Cesar Pelli will be the designer. Cool

With nearby buildings in the Arts District designed by I.M. Pei, Philip Johnson, SOM, George Dahl, Sir Alfred Bossom, Sir Norman Foster and Renzo Piano a Pelli design should be a welcome addiction. Cool

I need to make it down to your neck of the woods someday... Cool

Do you like his work?


I saw a number of pieces in Paris in 2004 (?) that were clearly influenced by Motherwell and Kline that I liked. I saw a couple of pieces that made me think of the works of Tapies that I loved in an art journal recently.

I would enjoy seeing the piece you are buying.


Vin, did you buy?


Yes. We were to pick it up this weekend, but Mr. Hoffman graciously offered to have it framed for us at the same pricing he would receive. We will take possession sometime next week when it is complete. Smile

Drop me a note at <edited> and I would be happy to forward a pic of the finished product, and the story of how the piece was inspired by a line of my partner's poetry.


Vin, I received your photo of your new piece, and it is wonderful! I like the Twombly and Tapies influence as well. Thanks for sending me the photo.

I emailed you a few of our paintings (15 or so) that I had on my iPhone. Bad photography for sure with the iPhone, but you can at least get a feel anyway.

It was nice to see the artists have the time to produce exceptional works of art! I will wait to opine until w+a has confirmed that he has watched the finale. Smile
Vin, KSC02 was curious about your purchase, so I shared your email with him.

I shared with my wife that I sent you 15 or so iPhone photos of some of our art and sculpture. She then started asking if I sent you a photo of this one, or that one, or this one, or... Turns out I did not send you one photo of the first few pieces she thought I should have.

Sometimes I think I share too much with her. Eek Wink

Enjoy your new acquisition.

We love it, thanks. Methinks it may not be the last Hoffman we acquire.
Listen to your wife...send photos of everything she says! Big Grin

I requested w+a to send me your email as I didn't want to 'pile on' the post. I hope you don't mind.

I really like your Hoffman, VinToronto. In fact, the email came in on my iPhone and was attached at the bottom. Reading the written work prior to seeing the piece was excellent and I'm glad I saw it in this order. In fact, I really enjoyed both pieces (written and painted). Seperately, they were excellent. Together they enhance each other even more.

Well done, VT. I've admittedly, not been aware of Uno Hoffman but this has really caught my attention. I am beginning to read up a bit now. Thanks for sharing.

M, thanks for not spoiling the final for me. I will watch it very soon.

I'm thinking there are two of the three finalist that have a chance to win.

You're welcome, although C deserves most of the credit both for both inspiration and acquisition.

If you've got my e-mail address and you're so inclined, I'd love to see what kind of objets d'art move you. If not - totally cool.

Thanks.

The Kimbell exhibit ends next week on Caravaggio here in DFW, which was an excellent exhibition.

Their next exhibit starts in March and focuses on Impressionism, which I will not be attending. Big Grin
I just heard that Helen Frankenthalar died.

She had a major influence in the art capital of the world ( NYC) for decades.

She was a NYC native, and born into a privileged lifestyle, and her relationship with Greenberg and marriage to Motherwell did not hurt matters either.

She was a student of Tamayo also. For everyone that knows my wife on this forum, please never bring up Tamayo around her. It was my greatest art blunder. Big Grin

I think of Morris Louis when I hear her name; he no doubt was influenced by her work. Although the transparent nature of the medium and style used by both is not my cup of tea, there is no denying its importance.

Now, I'm off to stretch a canvas and paint with bold tenacity and color! Big Grin
