THEY DANCED UNTIL THE MOON WAS HIGH IN THE SKY AND SAID "WHO ARE THEY" AND NO ONE DRESSED AS THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO.
DIARABI//goatI did some embroidery on my backpack while listening to Goat the other day
(a Swedish experimental band inspired by voodoo myths from their rural hometown, who I saw live a few weeks ago).
I painted Matisse's Dance I on the back of my art coat today and did lots of drawing. Then I listened to TS Eliot reading The Wasteland and watched The Boat That Rocked because isn't the soundtrack the most uplifting thing ever.

I went to Frieze art fair and Frieze Masters this week and let me tell you that Frieze Art Fair (ie mainly contemporary and very modern artists) made me so irritated because of the lack of technical skill and beauty in any of the art!!!!!!??
Some of it was actually quite interesting and some of it was slightly laughable, particularly due to the fact that one artist thought it would be a good idea to set up a stall and entice visitors to stand at a counter while we were read incantations from a vintage postcard, asked to burn some leaves and healing oil and then given champagne in a small plastic cup. where r the aesthetics
is this art????
I'm not saying it was all bad but Frieze Masters was like a total dream after~~ there was such a huge amount and so many gallery stalls that I don't think I actually saw everything but it was heaven. There were so many little Picasso and Hockney pencil drawings and Barbara Hepworth sculptures which are the best and one gallery had transformed into a mock-up of a French artist's studio and hung paintings on the walls of the bedroom and sitting room and it was like walking into a very cosy very cool house and I wish I lived there with Matisse and my other pals.
Twin Peaks is coming back, I'm on half term, Grayson Perry has a new documentary coming out and a show in London and Aphex Twin r alright ......
